Lumen Technologies has won a $110 million contract from the Defense Information Systems Agency to provide secure network services to the Defense Department.
Under the contract, Lumen will operate and maintain DISA’s fiber backbone, which includes colocation facilities, dark fiber, diverse end-to-end network infrastructure, new fiber builds and system updates. These updates use new technologies to boost network resilience, reduce latency and increase availability.
“Lumen’s robust fiber network delivers always-on, 24/7 services that power the U.S. Department of Defense,” said Jason Schulman, Lumen national vice president of federal sales. “DISA leverages the Lumen network’s strength, diversity and resiliency to achieve its mission of connecting and protecting America’s service men and women who help defend our nation.”
The contract has a 5-year period of performance from Nov. 30 through Sept. 30, 2028. It is an extension of an existing network services contract DISA previously awarded to Lumen.
