announces that it has been awarded an infrastructure upgrade contract for the 160th Signal Brigade, US Army, Kuwait.
The 160th Signal Brigade, US Army, Kuwait, is the permanently assigned unit responsible for all Army communications for locations in Southwest Asia for Kuwait, Qatar, and Afghanistan. With Voice over IP (VoIP) taking hold in region as a result of the Voice over Secure IP initiative implemented by the Defense Information Systems Agency and the certification of Cisco Systems VoIP products by the Joint Interoperability Test Command lab, the Army is now moving forward with infrastructure upgrades that are required in preparation for VoSIP communications implementation.
The infrastructure upgrade project is for the network headquartered in Camp Arifjan, Kuwait and will replace existing Local Area Network equipment that has reached an end of life status. The contract award represents approximately $628,000 in products and services revenue for INX, including Cisco network switches, routers, Voice over IP upgrades and implementation services.
Regarding the award, Roger Haney, Vice President of Sales, Federal Division for INX commented, "Beginning with the initial VoSIP system that we installed in Iraq for CENTCOM in 2004 that continues to operate effectively and expand under our supervision, we continue to broaden our presence in Southwest Asia and we anticipate further expansion in this market as the need for network upgrades and voice/data convergence solutions increases with the Army’s Voice over Secure IP initiative."
