Cambridge wins $30 million contract to enhance the DISN
The Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) awarded Cambridge a task order to provide asset-based IT infrastructure services that will help the Army upgrade its 10 Gigabit (10G) Internet Protocol transport router networking capabilities. The task order also requires Cambridge to implement a new Joint Regional Security Stack (JRSS) architecture as well as transition about 400 circuits in support of the Ft. Detrick Defense Information Systems Network (DISN) Service Delivery Node (SDN) relocation. Cambridge and partner AT&T Government Solutions will perform the work in domestic and international locations.
The task order, which has one 12-month base period and two one-year option periods, is worth about $30 million. The task order was awarded under DISA’s Global Information Grid Services and Management-Engineering, Transition and Implementation (GSM-ETI) multiple-award contract. Cambridge is one of seven prime contract holders eligible to compete for GSM-ETI task orders. This task order is Cambridge’s second GSM-ETI award.
Cambridge’s task order team will help DISA bring the DISN in line with the Defense Department’s Joint Information Environment (JIE) initiatives as well as increase bandwidth for Defense Department enterprise email and prepare for theatre expansion from 10G to 100G.
“Cambridge’s GSM-ETI team is honored to help DISA implement the Army’s 10G connectivity requirements,” said Cambridge President Chris Sentimore. “Cambridge’s IT infrastructure services will help make the Defense Department’s information-sharing environment more efficient and cost effective.”
