Lumen scores $23M networking contract with U.S. Army Reserve

Lumen Technologies won another contract from the U.S. military, this time locking in a $23 million networking deal with the U.S. Army Reserve Command.

Under the 11-year task order, Lumen will provide virtual private network services and remote access solutions to more than 650 Army Reserve locations. The award was made as part of the General Service Administration’s Enterprise Infrastructure Solutions (EIS) technology procurement program. All government telecom purchase agreements must be sourced through EIS by September 2022.

Zain Ahmed, SVP of Lumen Public Sector, said in a statement the company’s “secure, high-speed networking services will help Army Reservists accomplish their mission wherever they are.”

The win is Lumen’s latest EIS victory. It scored a $52 million contract to supply high-speed internet and voice-over-IP services to the U.S. Army Recruiting Command in July. In May, it inked a deal to provide software-defined wide area networking (SD-WAN), managed security services and more to the U.S. Navy Judge Advocate General (JAG) Corps.

Before the company rebranded as Lumen in September 2020, it also won contracts to provide connectivity to the U.S. Department of Defense Education Activity's learning network and NASA. In January 2020, it landed a $1.6 billion deal to modernize network services for the U.S. Department of Interior.
