FREQUENTIS selected by Verizon for FAA’s Enterprise Network Services (FENS) contract


Under the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) FENS contract Frequentis will work together with Verizon to transition the U.S. National Airspace System (NAS) to a modern IP network.

The NAS supports more than one billion passengers per year. In the FAA’s mission to continue to provide the safest and most efficient aerospace system in the world, the FENS program will update the FAA’s telecommunications network across the United States. The prime contract was recently awarded to Verizon, with Frequentis supporting all phases of the program.

Under the terms of the FENS contract, Verizon will build a dynamic, highly available and secure enterprise network for the FAA, in order to support the agency’s mission-critical applications across the NAS. FENS will support the Air Traffic Management (ATM) of more than 45,000 flights and 2.9 million airline passengers per day traveling across the 29 million square miles that make up the NAS.
