Black Box lands $17.9 million contract for communications upgrades at Camp Lejeune
The contract covers upgrading and expanding the existing telecommunications architecture at Camp Lejeune and is part of the Marine Corps’ global effort to improve its command and control, communications, computing and intelligence (C4I) capabilities around the world. The contract specifically covers engineering, furnishing, installing, securing and testing the camp’s infrastructure for communications, networks and collaboration.
“We are honored to support the Marine Corps as their trusted partner in upgrading and expanding their Unified Communications based C4I capability at Camp Lejeune,” Black Box Vice President of Government Solutions Jeff Murray said. “We look forward to helping the Marines improve the C4I mission environment at Camp Lejeune as we have done globally for the Marine Corps and other (military departments) over the past 30 years.”
Black Box said it was selected for the project based on its value, experience and reputation for UC solutions as evidenced by previous work for the Marines and other Department of Defense organizations.
