Peraton Expanding Global Network to Offer Enhanced Communications Solutions

Peraton announced today it is enhancing its global connectivity services
by significantly upgrading and expanding its terrestrial core network
and adding new points-of-presence (”PoPs”) across the U.S., Europe, the
Middle East and the Asia Pacific region.

“Demand for high speed persistent communications has grown exponentially
over the past few years, with today’s applications often requiring
gigabit rather than megabit connectivity,” said David Myers, president,
Communications sector. “Our enhanced network will not only provide
higher data rates, but also the resiliency demanded by government and
critical operations like public utilities and transportation. As an
independent private service provider, Peraton is proud to partner with
our clients to continually develop cost-effective communications
solutions tailored to their unique requirements and operating

The enhanced services will provide high-reliability carrier-class
connectivity over a self-healing meshed core network with built-in
redundancy, diversity and 24 x 7 network management. Customers can
select from a menu of services with both local and long-haul options,
and end-point data rates ranging from 50Mbps up to 100Gbps. Peraton’s
global network and local PoPs are being purpose-built to support data
intensive emerging applications and the unique reliability requirements
of government and critical infrastructure customers.

The move is part of Peraton’s strategic growth initiative to expand its
market presence and offer innovative private networking solutions
designed specifically for mission critical operations. The network will
use the latest in fiber-based gigabit Ethernet and software defined
networking technology. Services will support not only traditional
internet access, voice-over-IP, and high-definition video, but also
emerging applications driven by the Internet of Things (“IoT”) movement
and the desire to collect and analyze “big data” in near real-time.

Peraton is leveraging over 25 years of experience providing assured
connectivity solutions to government and commercial customers over both
terrestrial and satellite based networks. The company currently operates
an extensive optical and circuit switched network serving over 20
metropolitan areas. The current network also includes easy access
connectivity at over 60 government installations. The expansion will
upgrade technology and take Peraton’s network coast-to-coast, adding
several new major metropolitan areas including Seattle, San Francisco,
Los Angeles, Phoenix, Denver, Dallas and Chicago.

In addition to expanding service coverage across the U.S., Peraton is
adding new PoPs for customers with international operations in London,
Marseilles, Stuttgart, Kuwait, Bahrain, and Dubai for 2018, with more
locations to follow in Singapore, Guam, and Australia. The company plans
to have over 150 network PoPs in place by the end of 2019.
