CenturyLink offers solutions from a platform of service offerings designed to ensure that federal government agencies benefit from continuous product and service innovation. All CenturyLink services are layered in a fully converged architecture with integrated access, cybersecurity, diagnostic monitoring, and managed network services. This will enable a smooth migration from legacy services to CenturyLink’s future programmable services backbone (PSB) that will offer network function virtualization (NFV) pods and software-defined networking (SDN).
Supporting our product offerings is CenturyLink’s Federal Solutions Group, a dedicated organization of people that is singularly accountable to and responsible for the federal government’s needs. Direct support to the EIS contract is provided by our EIS Program Management Office (PMO).
CenturyLink’s platform of solutions includes:
Service Related Equipment (SRE)—CenturyLink’s interface to the customer; delivering secure application access and data transport.
Network Access—multiple access types enable customizable solutions.
Network Services—advanced communication services that allow agencies to transform the business of government.
Cloud Services—full application and infrastructure virtualization allows agencies to support their missions with mobile, cost effective, and secure resources.
Application Marketplace—movement of services to the application layer requires a robust marketplace capability to rapidly add services. The EIS web interface will provide access for agencies to manage their services and add new services using click-button provisioning.
EIS Automation—CenturyLink’s future PSB will provide for NFV pods to be built directly into the network and data centers; a core component of CenturyLink’s NFV and SDN strategy.
The EIS Contract promises to usher in a wave of next-generation networking and telecommunications technologies for government agencies. Learn how implementing the right transition plan can help your agency get more value out of its network today – and prepare for tomorrow.
