Peraton expands global network

Peraton has successfully completed the first phase of a global critical communications network expansion initiative by adding four major metropolitan areas and two commercial satellite teleports to its existing network spanning 20-plus cities, the company said.

The expanded network advances communications options for government and critical infrastructure operations and is specifically tailored to their current, unique requirements and will be an essential support element for future mission needs.

The new points-of-presence (PoPs) expand high-performance network connectivity options in and around Seattle, Los Angeles, Salt Lake City, and Chicago. The additional bi-coastal teleports in New Jersey and Washington offer end-to-end communication solutions that bring voice, video, and data via satellite to US shores and connect seamlessly to end-points across the country.

Earlier this year, Peraton announced plans to enhance its global connectivity services by upgrading and expanding its terrestrial core network. With more than 25 years providing assured connectivity solutions to government and commercial customers over terrestrial and satellite-based networks, the new services will offer both local and long-haul communications at data rates available from 50Mbps up to 100Gbps.

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, defense, electronic warfare, homeland security, and 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 US and Canada.
