Additional coverage provides new options for U.S. government and critical infrastructure operations
HERNDON, VA — October 29, 2018 – Peraton has successfully completed the first phase of a global critical communications network expansion initiative by adding four major metropolitan areas and two commercial satellite teleports to its existing network spanning 20-plus cities. The expanded network advances communications options for government and critical infrastructure operations and is specifically tailored to their current, unique requirements and will be an essential support element for future mission needs.
The new points-of-presence (PoPs) expand high-performance network connectivity options in and around Seattle, Los Angeles, Salt Lake City, and Chicago. The additional bi-coastal teleports in New Jersey and Washington offer end-to-end communication solutions that bring voice, video, and data via satellite to U.S. shores and connect seamlessly to end-points across the country.
“Emerging applications like Internet-of-Things, cloud computing and enhanced cyber security requirements are sharply increasing the demand for multigigabit connectivity,” said David Myers, president, Communications sector. “With the first phase of our network expansion complete, we are proud to offer customers with mission-critical operations more choices in robust communications connectivity. The addition of new satellite teleports enables us to deliver seamless reach-back communications, over a single purpose-built network for organizations with disperse locations around the globe.”
Earlier this year, Peraton announced plans to enhance its global connectivity services by upgrading and expanding its terrestrial core network. With more than 25 years providing assured connectivity solutions to government and commercial customers over terrestrial and satellite-based networks, the new services will offer both local and long-haul communications at data rates available from 50Mbps up to 100Gbps.
The expansion initiative includes long-term plans to add PoPs across the U.S., Europe, the Middle East and Asia Pacific. By the end of the year, the company plans to add three more metropolitan areas to the network, including Denver, Phoenix, and Dallas.
