U.S. Army Upgrades DNS Infrastructure with Lucent

Lucent Technologies has upgraded the global IP management and Domain Name Service (DNS) infrastructure of the U.S. Army's Network Enterprise Technology Command (NETCOM) based in Fort Huachuca, Arizona. NETCOM provides network operations for the Army supporting more than 1.25-million civilian and military users worldwide and provides the underpinning for all of the Army's data, voice and video services.

The Lucent-designed infrastructure is being used to manage more than 1.75 million internet protocol (IP) records and is distributed to more than 300 global servers. The Lucent solution includes software that enables the efficient administration of IP services and is specifically designed for large-scale enterprise customers.

The contract was a part of the DNS-2 project that replaces the entire internal name services solution throughout the Army's infrastructure. Lucent's software has been used to protect their external namespace since the U.S. Army's C2 Protected (C2P) DNS-1 Program in 1998.
