HERNDON, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Peraton announced today it is enhancing its global connectivity services by significantly upgrading and expanding its terrestrial core network and adding new points-of-presence (”PoPs”) across the U.S., Europe, the Middle East and the Asia Pacific region.
“Demand for high speed persistent communications has grown exponentially over the past few years, with today’s applications often requiring gigabit rather than megabit connectivity,” said David Myers, president, Communications sector. “Our enhanced network will not only provide higher data rates, but also the resiliency demanded by government and critical operations like public utilities and transportation. As an independent private service provider, Peraton is proud to partner with our clients to continually develop cost-effective communications solutions tailored to their unique requirements and operating environments.”
The enhanced services will provide high-reliability carrier-class connectivity over a self-healing meshed core network with built-in redundancy, diversity and 24 x 7 network management. Customers can select from a menu of services with both local and long-haul options, and end-point data rates ranging from 50Mbps up to 100Gbps. Peraton’s global network and local PoPs are being purpose-built to support data intensive emerging applications and the unique reliability requirements of government and critical infrastructure customers.
The move is part of Peraton’s strategic growth initiative to expand its market presence and offer innovative private networking solutions designed specifically for mission critical operations. The network will use the latest in fiber-based gigabit Ethernet and software defined networking technology. Services will support not only traditional internet access, voice-over-IP, and high-definition video, but also emerging applications driven by the Internet of Things (“IoT”) movement and the desire to collect and analyze “big data” in near real-time.
Peraton is leveraging over 25 years of experience providing assured connectivity solutions to government and commercial customers over both terrestrial and satellite based networks. The company currently operates an extensive optical and circuit switched network serving over 20 metropolitan areas. The current network also includes easy access connectivity at over 60 government installations. The expansion will upgrade technology and take Peraton’s network coast-to-coast, adding several new major metropolitan areas including Seattle, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Phoenix, Denver, Dallas and Chicago.
In addition to expanding service coverage across the U.S., Peraton is adding new PoPs for customers with international operations in London, Marseilles, Stuttgart, Kuwait, Bahrain, and Dubai for 2018, with more locations to follow in Singapore, Guam, and Australia. The company plans to have over 150 network PoPs in place by the end of 2019.
Peraton provides innovative, reliable solutions to the nation’s most sensitive and mission-critical programs and systems. As a trusted provider of highly differentiated space, intelligence, cyber/SIGINT, defense, electronic warfare, homeland security, and secure communications capabilities, Peraton is a critical partner to the Intelligence Community, Department of Defense, and select federal agencies and commercial entities.
Headquartered in Herndon, Virginia, the company employs approximately 3,500 people across the U.S. and Canada.
