NATO’s International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) has awarded a communications and information services contract to Segovia, Inc., a provider of reliable, secure end-to-end communication solutions to the U.S. military and other government agencies, the company says in a written statement.
Under the contract, Segovia’s consultants will provide network engineering, help desk/service and systems administration for elements of the ISAF in Kandahar, Afghanistan, where thousands of international troops are fighting insurgents.
Coordinating allied troop activity requires communication among dispersed forces in a geographic area where terrestrial telecommunications is not always the most reliable option, says Segovia, which is based in Herndon, Va.
However, that Segovia was selected to support mission communications is an indication that “NATO must be confident of high reliability network engineering and systems administration” by Segovia, says Christopher Baugh, president of NSR, a consultancy with a focus on the satellite industry. “Segovia is well equipped to provide that measure of reliability and technological expertise,” he said.
