Telos to implement enterprise-level cabling systems for Air National Guard

Project will upgrade systems to AF CITS standards at geographically separated units.

ASHBURN, Va. -- The Air National Guard (ANG) has awarded a new task order to Telos Corporation to design and build an enterprise-level information transport system (ITS) in accordance with Air Force Combat Information Transport System (CITS) standards at the Guard’s Geographically Separated Units (GSUs).

The task order, awarded under the Network Centric Solutions (NETCENTS) contract vehicle, will upgrade systems at 10 locations.

“The subsystems addressed by the modernization initiative include inside plant, outside plant, second generation wireless local area network, or 2GWLAN, converged backbone network, mass notification system and all supporting infrastructure,” said Ronnie Clark, director of Air National Guard programs for Telos’ Secure Networks division. “The outcome will be the installation of an integrated, structured, high-bandwidth cabling system with sufficient capability to support both ANG and Air Force current and future mission requirements.”
