Lucent and ICS Telecom Win $50 Million US DOJ Contract

Lucent Technologies and ICS Telecom (ICS) are one of two teams awarded a multiple award, multi-year Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract from the Executive Offices of the U.S. Attorney (EOUSA) in the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ). The 7-year contract is valued at up to $50 million and includes the planned migration to a secure VoIP network, in addition to providing traditional telephony equipment and maintenance services.

The converged EOUSA communications network will support 260 offices throughout every state and U.S. territory. The multi- purpose network carries unclassified, sensitive and classified information and also extends to share critical information with both local and state law enforcement agencies.

Over the past 18-months, Lucent was a part of the EOUSA efforts to design and implement a pilot VoIP program. The pilot program included solution planning and design, system architecture, integration, testing and migration planning for 4 cities and up to 120 users.
