CNSI, an IT company based in Gaithersburg, Md., has been selected by Los Alamos National Security LLC (LANS) to continue its work providing telecommunications support and related services at Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL), according to a CNSI announcement released earlier this week.
“Los Alamos National Laboratory is widely recognized as a backbone to our nation’s research, science and national security and CNSI’s continuing efforts will assist in positioning LANL as one of the most secure and efficient facilities in the world,” said Adnan Ahmed, president of CNSI. “We have supported Los Alamos in a number of accomplishments and we will continue to provide the cutting-edge products and services to meet the needs of our latest joint technological efforts.”
LANS has managed operations at the laboratory since 2006, two years before CNSI was selected in 2008 to support the lab’s telecommunications. CNSI through the service contract supports the laboratory’s efforts to utilize the latest technology in its communications system, with special emphasis toward a LANL-wide conversion to Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) technology. The company was most recently awarded a three-year contract with one base year and two additional option years to continue the telecommunications support.
As part of the telecommunication support to LANS, CNSI has operated LANL’s switching offices, maintained hundreds of miles of transmission and distribution facilities and provided comprehensive customer support to one of the Department of Energy’s largest and most significant science and technology institutions.
CNSI was officially selected to continue servicing Los Alamos National Laboratory in September 2013. CNSI provides information technology and business process outsourcing solutions to federal, state and local government agencies, and commercial enterprises.
CNSI was also nominated by LANS for the DOE Small Business of the Year award in both 2011 and 2012 for its successful operations and teaming with LANS to meet the transitioning telecommunications needs at LANL.
“The determination of our team members has proven to be significant and we are honored that Los Alamos has twice nominated us for the Department of Energy Small Business of the Year award,” said Ahmed. “While we have reached many milestones with LANS, there is more to be done and we look forward to supporting the mission in 2014 and beyond.”
