DISA Taps Lumen For Fiber Backbone

November 8th, 2023 by · Leave a Comment

Lumen has won another significant federal contract, building upon the success. They will be operating and maintaining the fiber backbone of the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA).

The deal has a ceiling of $110M and spans a 5 year term starting at the end of this month and stretching through the third quarter of 2028. DISA’s network leverages 11,000 route miles of fiber on Lumen’s infrastructure footprint. In particular, the terms cover colocation facilities, dark fiber, new fiber builds, and system updates.

If all this sounds familiar, Lumen has won multiple contracts related to DISA over the last year. Last November it was $1.5B for lit services in support of the US Indo-Pacific Command Area, and in February it was UC and other voice services for the DoD.  And the relationship stretches further back a long ways both via the Level 3 branch and the CenturyLink branch.
