McLean, VA | December 14, 2010 – SMS, a leading IT services provider and systems integration firm with nearly 40 years of experience providing IT solutions to the Federal Government, announced today it has been awarded over $1 million in wireless SIPRNET kits to various Department of Defense (DoD) agencies.
SMS was selected for the project based on their extensive background in overcoming security challenges confronting DoD information technology networks. Network interconnectivity is growing as are the increasingly sophisticated and diverse threats to these systems.
LTC Beverly Hartfield Telecommunications Program Coordinator / CSJFTC commented on SMS’ work on a recent project stating, “The mobile kit is a stable platform that will allow SIPR traffic over NIPR. The first unit to use the kit had zero service calls for the kit itself. Simply stated, it performed without flaw.” Hartfield further stated, “The kit is truly plug-n-play, you plug it in and it works. Configuring computers to work on the system only requires simple, basic networking skills.”
John Cordeiro Vice President of Strategic Programs commented, “We are pleased to offer a solution to the war-fighter that is affordable, accredited, and simple to deploy and use.” Cordeiro added, “This product will spawn further iterations and improvements offering the Army and other DoD customers a wealth of customizable options and security for the future.”
