Reston, Va.-based NCI Inc. announced Feb. 11 that its Secure Passive Optical Network (SPON) for the U.S. Army’s Network Enterprise Technology Command (NETCOM) received the Dynamite Award in the most disruptive category during last week’s Igniting Innovation 2015 Showcase and Awards event.
“NCI is proud to have the work we performed for our long-time customer, NETCOM, recognized for this award,” NCI’s president Brian J. Clark said. “In addition to being significantly faster, more cost-effective, and more secure than traditional networks, SPON is green technology that is highly scalable with optical cable infrastructure capable of supporting the bandwidth needs of the future.”
The event was sponsored by the American Council for Technology-Industry Advisory Council (ACT-IAC) and held at the Ronald Reagan Building on Feb. 5.
NCI implemented the SPON as the first step toward providing the U.S. Army with fully integrated monitoring of its network and facility assets across the enterprise.
