NETMOD-C is the Army’s Program Executive Office (PEO) Enterprise Information Systems (EIS) Post / Camp / Station (PCS) Local Area Network (LAN) lifecycle/modernization program in support of PCS located in the Continental United States (CONUS). As an 8a and STARS II contract holder, VAE was awarded the task to survey, engineer, and implement the modernization of over 50,000 unclassified network switches across 84 PCS.
Using ITPIE and value chain product delivery methods, VAE successfully migrated Army’s legacy network infrastructure to the Army’s new technical baseline with unprecedented speed and within the agreed-upon firm fixed price.
VAE reduced the duration of the typical PCS modernization effort to 1/6th of what it used to take before the contract was awarded to VAE (going from 2+ years per PCS to taking only 4-6 months). ITPIE was the engine that drove the ability to gain the information dominance VAE needed to achieve these unprecedented results!
- Immediate Digital Survey Capability without Site Level Software Installation 1
- Early Government iBOM Material Procurements (Months Ahead of Need)
- Custom Organizational Metadata Associations to Network Devices, VLANS, and VRFs
- Rapid Development of Engineering Implementation Plans (EIP) 2
- Legacy Device Configuration Backup and translation/rollout to New Device
- On-Demand Reporting of Lifecycle/Modernization Progress Status 3
- Compliance Validation Prior to Site Level Project Closeout 4
- Using Enterprise Management Network installed instance of ITPIE (benefit of centralized network management).
- Using near-real-time Data and Dynamically Generated Exportable Network Maps.
- Using the most recent Infrastructure Survey Inventory to determine the number of remaining switches to upgrade.
- Using an operator-defined “Target Infrastructure” profile and comparing it to the “Last Surveyed Infrastructure”.
