BROOMFIELD - Level 3 Communications Inc. (NYSE: LVLT) announced the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has selected the global telecommunications carrier to deliver a comprehensive suite of local area network (LAN) managed services for the agency.
From installation of cabling and equipment to network design, engineering, monitoring and management, Level 3 said it will deliver an end-to-end solution to DHS that will connect nearly 60 DHS sites.
Level 3 said the multi-year, multi-million-dollar contract represents a "significant shift in how public agencies approach information technology infrastructure procurement and management."
Level 3 said it will be one of the first telecommunications providers to deliver a fully outsourced NaaS (Network as a Service) solution for a federal agency.

Level 3 employees will provide on-site professional services support at the DHS National Operations Center to conduct remote monitoring of the network both within the contiguous U.S. and internationally, the company said.
