Verizon to Help the FBI Modernize Its Infrastructure

July 20th, 2022 by · Leave a Comment

In a significant federal contract victory, Verizon yesterday announced a new contract with the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Verizon Public Sector was awarded an Enterprise Infrastructure Solutions task order to modernize and expand the FBI’s network infrastructure and the data and voice solutions that run upon it.

The EIS task order has a net potential value of over $400M in revenue. The FBI will be integrating directly with Verizon’s IT department team, making sure network availability and continuity of services are maximized. The upgrades envision ethernet access and virtual private network services that leverage Verizon’s 4G LTE and 5G wireless access. The move to a more wireless infrastructure will enable the FBI to deploy new locations quickly as well as lower latency.

It’s a new contract award, but of course it’s not a new relationship. Verizon and the FBI have been working together for a couple of decades already.  Verizon Public Sector always wins its share of this type of federal dollars of course.
