Verizon Public Sector (VPS) has landed a $15 million task order with Navy Morale, Welfare, and Recreation (MWR) through the federal government’s Enterprise Infrastructure Solutions (EIS) contract vehicle.

Under the contract, Verizon will deliver voice and data services at domestic and international locations for the US Navy.

Verizon will modernize the data services for the US Navy, which includes transitioning from the Navy’s Time Division Multiplexing (TDM) voice platform to Ethernet.

With the voice component, VPS said it will develop new technologies and services to help meet the Navy’s next-generation voice requirements.

“The MWR contract award represents the latest example of Verizon’s dedication to the digital transformation of federal agencies, as well as the broader public sector, as evidenced by the work we’ve done with the Department of Defense and a number of other agencies over the last few years,” said Maggie Hallbach, senior vice president of public sector at Verizon.

Two years ago, Verizon Public Sector secured a $78 million contract with Naval District Washington (NDW) that named it as the district's technology partner.

Under the terms of that contract, Verizon Public Sector updated NDW’s TDM voice platform to a hosted Internet protocol voice service (IPVS) at the agency’s Indian Head facility in Maryland.

VPS was awarded close to $1 billion worth of business from the US Department of Defense last year.

In 2021, the DoD awarded a $495 million contract to VPS to manage and upgrade the network connecting US supercomputers to researchers.
