Problem

A new, state-of-the art complex was being constructed on a U.S. Air Force base in the Midwest to manage defense information and house the DoD’s largest cyber operations center. Fiber-optic network solutions and infrastructure were needed for greater security and cost-effective lifecycle management.

Solution

Optical LAN based on a gigabit passive optical network for greater speed, security and easier upgrades/expansion than copper.

Impact

  • Envistacom designed, installed, configured and tested three IT networks and the supporting infrastructure, including the first optical LAN ever used by this agency.
  • Vulnerability points were removed while lowering operation and maintenance costs.
  • Envistacom’s implementation of the cyber operations center provides the DoD with world-class capabilities previously unavailable.
