Qwest to upgrade NASA network

Qwest : 12 August, 2009  (Application Story)
Corporate Wide Area Network services at NASA to be upgraded using Qwest's Optical Wave Services
NASA has made a $14.2 million contract award to Qwest Government Services, a subsidiary of Qwest Communications, to upgrade the federal agency's Corporate Backbone circuits from 2.5Gbps to 10Gbps.

The NASA Corporate Backbone is the high-speed broadband network that provides corporate wide area network transport for e-mail, collaboration, and scientific, financial and business applications for the agency's headquarters, field centres, and numerous facilities and partner locations across the country and the world.

The circuits comprise a large portion of the NASA Corporate Backbone in terms of capacity and connectivity.

Qwest's OWS (Optical Wave Services) approach provides flexibility and can be adapted to almost any architecture (ring, mesh or linear).

NASA determined that the Qwest solution offered significant benefits in terms of mission suitability.


According to Diana Gowen, Qwest Government Services, Senior Vice President and General Manager: "Qwest provides a nationwide wavelength infrastructure that will provide NASA with a broad range of technical capabilities for supporting the International Space Station and other missions into the frontiers of space."
