Comcast Corp. said its Comcast Government Services division has been awarded two additional multimillion dollar contracts by the U.S. Defense Information Systems Agency as part of the agency's effort to replace legacy circuits across the country with Ethernet-based services.
The company said the contracts represent $84.2 million and $71.6 million up to ten years. Comcast has now won four of the seven Commercial Ethernet Gateway regions for a total of more than $267 million. The Company was awarded a contract in June, and one in March 2020.
DISA provides, operates, and assures information-sharing capabilities, command and control solutions and a global enterprise infrastructure to support the Department of Defense and national-level leadership. The agency is in a multiphase initiative to replace 17,000 point-to-point public switched telephone circuits with Ethernet-based services across the continental U.S. to enhance connectivity, improve network performance and reduce overall telecommunications costs.
