Sprint wins MTIPS contract from US General Services Administration

To provide secure managed internet access services

By CBR Staff Writer

Sprint Nextel has won the Managed Trusted IP Services contract from the US General Services Administration.

Managed Trusted IP Services (MTIPS) meets an Office of Management and Budget (OMB) mandate for bundled, secure managed internet access services for federal government agencies.

MTIPS is a modification to the Networx Enterprise contract that allows federal agencies to order IP services that comply with OMB Memorandum 08-05 that was issued November 20, 2007. The OMB action calls for implementation of Trusted Internet Connection mandate, which required agencies to reduce the number of connections to the public internet and provide secure IP portals for agency traffic to and from the public internet.

Bill White, vice president of federal programs at Sprint, said: Sprint has a rich history of providing innovative, secure wireline and wireless solutions to federal agencies. Sprint’s offerings under the MTIPS award will make it easier for government agencies to resolve their security challenges, both now and in the future.

Federal agencies also benefit from Sprint’s broad portfolio of next-generation IP and converged solutions. These solutions provide agencies with the speed and flexibility they need to respond quickly to changing business conditions and enable their employees to work when and where they want.
