Agency Migration Strategies from Networx to NS2020’s EIS

Wednesday, June 10, 2015
02:00 PM EDT

Duration: 1 hour

In the coming years, the General Services Administration’s Network Services 2020 (NS2020)- based Enterprise Infrastructure Solutions (EIS) contract vehicle will allow agencies to buy telecommunications and a variety of other network, infrastructure, and related solutions. Yet, many federal agencies today have immediate needs in areas like improving bandwidth to field offices and managed services, and while EIS – the successor to the 10-year-old Networx contract – will provide these services to agencies, EIS will be available for agency use in 2017. How can agencies balance their current and future technology needs in the interim with services that are currently available today? What options are available to them?

  • Discuss the potential benefits and timeline of the government’s NS2020 strategy and how it will replace Networx, the government’s existing telecommunications program
  • Assess options for services available to agencies today that allow them to take advantage of emerging technologies
  • Explain the importance of modernizing network services for federal agencies
