2008-07-15 08:00:00

VIENNA, Va.–(EMWNews)–LGS, a subsidiary of Alcatel-Lucent (NYSE: ALU) dedicated to serving the

U.S. government community, announced today it had completed a video

conference upgrade project for Redstone Arsenal located in northern


Redstone Arsenal is home to the U.S. Army Aviation and Missile Command

(AMCOM), the Space and Missile Defense Command, numerous Program

Executive Offices (PEO), and major components of the Defense

Intelligence Agency and the Missile Defense Agency.

The project involved upgrading a video room that serves as a central

operations center for AMCOMs conferencing

capabilities. The central facility staff is actively engaged in video

conferencing with as many as 25 sites from around the world. LGS was

able to work with the customer to create a flexible, touch screen

central system that allowed them to control all elements of the video

teleconference and use the projection screens and other multimedia

equipment for internal briefings as well.

LGS also upgraded the Redstone system to accommodate the upcoming

transition to new technology. LGS has developed a hardware/software

solution approved by the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) for

video teleconferencing systems (VTC) operating on the DVS-II network.

This system allows the user to switch between networks from a

centralized control panel using a sequenced checklist, enabling VTC

systems to be utilized in both secure and non-secure modes without

compromising the integrity of the secure network. This system has been

tested by the DISN Video Services Lab and approved for use in VTC

systems on the DVS-II network.

The convergence of data, voice and video is

transforming the way our customers communicate,

said Ron Iverson, CEO, LGS. Video

conferencing is an efficient but complex undertaking, requiring highly

trained staff, extensive network experience and a comprehensive

knowledge of current and emerging technologies.

LGS has unsurpassed skills and experience in video conferencing design

and implementation, network configuration, software engineering, room

design and physical construction. Its expertise extends to more than 100

different components from a wide variety of vendors, enabling government

agencies to have a video solution tailored to meet their needs.

The LGS Custom Software & Video Integration team has designed,

developed, implemented, integrated and maintained full-scale enterprise

database systems ranging from handfuls of users to hundreds of users.

LGS has extensive technical experience integrating multiple

off-the-shelf database solutions and proprietary government solutions.
