Verizon to Migrate National Guard's Primary Comm. Network to IP Backbone

Verizon will soon migrate the National Guard Bureau‘s primary communications network to a private Verizon Internet protocol network, which will connect more than 100 National Guard locations in 54 states and territories.

The company indicated it will also upgrade and modernize GuardNet to serve as a platform for new IP-based applications.

The National Guard uses GuardNet for learning applications and to interact with the Defense Department. It also uses the network for administrative services and community outreach initiatives. 

“As the business of government changes to become more virtual, the National Guard is a great example of a government user relying on a strong network foundation to allow it to operate more efficiently so it can focus on its mission,” said Susan Zeleniak, president of Verizon Business’ federal government group.

Verizon will perform the work on a $28.8 million contract awarded under the U.S. General Services Administration’s Networx Enterprise contract. The company said the contract was awarded through the Defense Information Systems Agency‘s contracting arm.
