DISA Launches Network Modernization Effort for DoD Personnel in Hawaii

The Defense Information Systems Agency has started modernizing the information and communications network of the Defense Department in Hawaii through a new program.

DISA said Wednesday the Pacific Enterprise Services-Hawaii initiative consists of three contracts that allow DoD personnel in the state to replace aging voice and data services with internet protocol technology.

U.S. Army Maj. Ernesto Gumbs, deputy program manager of PES-HI, said the modernization program will help meet DoD telecommunications requirements and provide cost savings to U.S. Indo-Pacific Command customers in the long run.

The program succeeds the 12-year Joint Hawaiian Information Transfer System contract, which authorized the installation of 3,100 point-to-point intra-Hawaii transmission circuits to enable DoD telecommunication services, among other things.
