Enterasys Gear Deployed by USAF

Cape Canaveral Air Force Station and Patrick Air Force Base in Florida have completed a large-scale deployment of Enterasys Networks' gear as part of the Air Force's Combat Information Transport System (CITS). The CITS program, which is managed out of Hanscom AFB in Massachusetts, is responsible for Air Force-wide communications upgrades.

The bid process for the network infrastructure for the CITS program began in 2002, with a network design from General Dynamics. Overall, the Air Force purchased $3 million of Enterasys technology beginning in late 2002, culminating with the dedication of the new network in November 2004.

Enterasys technology is deployed at the edge of the networks, with 38 Matrix E-Series switches and other technology deployed at Cape Canaveral, and more than 40 Matrix switches and related products at Patrick AFB.
