We are the largest provider of communications services to the federal government and have unmatched experience helping the U.S. military meet its communications needs around the globe.
As the prime contractor for the Defense Information System Network Transmission (DISN) Services–Pacific II (DTS-P II) contract, Verizon provides end-to end transmission services and capabilities essential to the Department of Defense’s (DoD) consolidated enterprise-level telecommunications infrastructure for the Expanded Pacific Region.
DTS-P II fulfills the data transmission needs of the Department of Defense as well as its Services and Agencies in the Expanded Pacific region. The requirements for service transmission are accomplished using a comprehensive mix of undersea fiber optic cable and international satellite services. As part of Verizon's overall service offering we provide the following:
Verizon provides the overall direction and supervision of the transmission services in concert with DISA's management centers. We utilize leading edge tools, applications and product suites to provide a seamless approach to managing the DTS-P II systems, networks and applications. Network management functions are performed at our Government Network and Operations Security Center (GNOSC) in Ashburn, VA, and our alternate GNOSC in Cary, NC.
Verizon offers a fully integrated security approach to ensure DTS-P II services are protected per established DISN security procedures. Verizon manages the access and use of all information systems and databases within the contractor-controlled DISN security architecture. Verizon monitors and maintains physical, personnel, operational and industrial security to ensure the ongoing security and integrity of DTS-P II services. Verizon has installed the equipment, prepared the documentation and maintained the standards to achieve DTS-P II final authority to operate (ATO).
Verizon will provide Customer Satellite Earth Stations and maintenance to support the Government's need for satellite communication where needed. The earth stations can either be purchased or leased.
To support the government's need for secure transmission, Verizon provides and installs SONET Encryptors by SafeNet for purchase.
