Verizon gets $1.58bn for US Embassy Infrastructure

Verizon will kick off a project aimed modernising the technology and network infrastructure for embassies in roughly 260 sites across the world thanks to a task order from Enterprise Infrastructure Solutions (EIS).

The Department of State’s (DOS) U.S. embassies, consulates, and other important facilities across the world will receive IT services from Verizon under a new Enterprise Infrastructure Solutions (EIS) contract that was recently revealed.

The deployment and management of network solutions for the Department’s non-domestic footprint, which encompasses Asia, Africa, the Middle East, and South America, are included in the deal, which is valued at $1.58 billion over the next 10 years.

“We are uniquely qualified to provide the Department of State with powerful solutions to their global network consolidation and management needs,” said Maggie Hallbach, Senior Vice President of Public Sector at Verizon. “We have supported the Department of Defence and other national security and civilian customers with global critical infrastructure and communications for more than three decades,” he added.

The agreement includes a tried-and-true management strategy that makes use of knowledgeable Verizon Public Sector teams, unambiguous procedures, and tech-enabled tools to deliver all services on schedule and in accordance with service performance criteria.

Following recent deals with the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the U.S. Department of Defense, it is safe to say Verizon Public Sector has established itself as a market leader in securing EIS work orders from the federal government.
