LGS Wins Stuttgart Army Airfield and Enclave Upgrade Contracts Worth up to $11.2 Million
LGS, a subsidiary of Alcatel-Lucent (NYSE: ALU) dedicated to serving the U.S. government community, today announced it has been selected for two network upgrade projects in Stuttgart, Germany valued at up to $11.2 million.
The contract awards, part of the Infrastructure Modernization or IMOD contract, are in support of the Installation Information Infrastructure Program (I3MP) at three installations including Patch Barracks, Kelley Barracks and Panzer Kaserne.
As a part of the awards LGS will work with the Army to implement an I3MP build out that includes voice and data network upgrades to ensure seamless interface with legacy networks as well as provides extensive security and business continuity services. LGS will also implement a Voice over IP (VoIP) network at the Stuttgart Army Airfield.
“LGS continues to work closely with its customers to deliver key communications technologies such as Voice over IP,” said Ron Iverson, LGS, CEO. “These technologies can give much needed new capabilities to the men and women serving our country while still delivering the level of security and reliability they have come to expect.”
The IMOD contract replaced the telecommunications switch modernization effort of the Digital Switched Systems Modernization Program (DSSMP). IMOD aims to create integrated, secure communications systems for Army installations, and relies heavily on network transformation and migration to newer technologies.
LGS and its predecessor organizations has a dedicated team of people who have been working with the Army for more than 15 years.
