MetTel, a global digital transformation and communications provider for medium and large businesses, as well as for federal, state and local government agencies, has announced that the United States Marine Corps Recruiting Command (MCRC) has chosen MetTel for its Nationwide Internet Protocol Network Service, a contract worth more than $58 million.
MetTel’s aim will be to offer the MCRC with a dependable and resilient network infrastructure that can support desktop computers, mobile computing, telephone services, video collaboration services and any other networking and voice services. MCRC’s current Internet service capacity will be upgraded, and the provider plans to deliver Internet Protocol Voice Services and Wi-Fi to almost 1,500 MCRC sites. The MetTel EIS Portal will allow MCRC to monitor and obtain reporting information on services offered over the MetTel network in near real-time.
MetTel has secured contracts with more than a dozen federal departments since 2020, with the total value of all contracts exceeding $2 billion. MetTel has announced IT Communications projects with a number of city and federal agencies over the past two years, including the Social Security Administration, Department of Homeland Security, General Services Administration (GSA), United States Department of State, National Archives and Records Administration and Veterans Administration.
Robert Dapkiewicz, senior vice president and general manager, MetTel Federal, commented: “The MCRC decision to select MetTel to upgrade their nationwide network speaks to their confidence in our ability to transform their network and help modernize their legacy voice services through IP-based services. MetTel looks forward to partnering with MCRC to support their critical mission.”
Enterprise Infrastructure Solutions (EIS), a technology procurement program of the General Service Administration, was used to award the contract. Government companies can use this initiative to upgrade their IT infrastructure by partnering with contractors that supply services such as VPN, phone and Ethernet.
