Commission will transition internet access connectivity to new infrastructure contract
July 21, 2021, New York – MetTel, a digital transformation and communications leader, today announced the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has selected MetTel to provide Internet Protocol Services (IPS) under the General Services Administration (GSA) Enterprise Infrastructure Solutions (EIS) contract.
In compliance with Federal Trusted Internet Connections (TIC) directives and as part of its digital transformation, the SEC will transition its IPS services to EIS contract providers. MetTel will provide 10 gigabit Ethernet IPS connectivity at the SEC’s second data center.
Established in 1934, at the height of the Great Depression, the SEC’s mission is to protect investors, maintain fair, orderly, and efficient markets, and facilitate capital formation. The agency is comprised of 11 regional offices and an IPS network that is fully converged with agency data, voice, and video services. The IPS operates as a ‘hot-hot’ design, with providers having the maximum amount of physical diversity possible, to minimize the risk of downtime due to circuit failures.
“MetTel will equip the SEC with a forward-looking IPS solution that can facilitate upgrades and enhancements as telecommunications technologies and services evolve and advance,” advised Robert Dapkiewicz, General Manager and SVP, Federal Programs, MetTel. “Utilizing the MetTel EIS Portal, the SEC will have access to the latest technology to monitor and report performance details in near real-time on the internet services delivered via the MetTel network. The portal will provide improved visibility into operations and service level agreement compliance. “
