LITTLE ROCK, Ark. -- Windstream (Nasdaq:WIN), a leading provider of advanced network communications, announced today that it has been awarded a contract valued at $3 million by the Defense Information System Agency (DISA) to provide diverse fiber services to Fort Campbell and Dover Air Force Base.

DISA's current fiber network will be expanded into Fort Campbell, home to the only Air Assault Division in the world and located between Hopkinsville, Ky., and Clarksville, Tenn., creating additional route diversity and redundancy. Dover Air Force Base, located just outside of Dover, Del., will benefit from the same expansion efforts.

Augmenting the current network design will provide a faster network to both military bases. Windstream will install two half-10Gbps waves for fully diverse fiber paths into the facilities, tying those paths together to connect back to Windstream's national fiber network. The custom-designed solution will allow the thousands of employees at both Fort Campbell and Dover AFB to consistently connect to a secure, reliable network, increasing productivity and efficiency.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
