The Defense Information Systems Agency plans to kick off a project next year to update telecommunications infrastructure for Defense Department personnel based in Hawaii.
DISA said Thursday it aims to modernize DoD’s analog communications systems on the island to a new internet protocol-technology base under the Pacific Enterprise Services-Hawaii program.
PES-HI will offer new enterprise services to department personnel such as web conferencing, collaboration, voice and video over internet protocol services.
AT&T currently provides telecommunications and data services to Hawaii-based military departments under the Joint Hawaii Information Transfer System contract.
The contract is set to expire in June 2018 and DISA said it will incorporate legacy services covered under JHITS into PES-HI until the transition to IP services is completed.
