Verizon Business Readies for Networx Universal

Verizon Business has officially unveiled a suite of services and capabilities available to federal government agencies under the multibillion-dollar Networx Universal contract awarded by the U.S. General Services Administration on March 29. Last week Verizon Business met with representatives from federal agencies that soon will begin submitting orders under Networx Universal.

Networx Universal is the first of two Networx contracts awarded by the GSA to modernize federal government communications with seamless, secure and interoperable services to support the business of government. The second contract, Networx Enterprise, is expected to be awarded later this month.

  • Verizon Business last year opened a new Government Network Operations and Security Center (GNOSC) in Northern Virginia dedicated to supporting the unique security and operational requirements of federal government customers. The GNOSC, along with Verizon Business's vBNS+ (Very High Speed Backbone Network Service), will also play an important role in helping the federal government adopt IPv6 by the mandated transition target of June 2008.
