|Harris Corporation Team Transfers Control of FAA Administrative Network to FTI Network Operations and Control Center|
WASHINGTON, DC, — Harris Corporation today announced that its Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Telecommunications Infrastructure (FTI) team has successfully transferred all operational monitoring and management of the FAA's new FTI Mission Support network to the Harris Network Operations Control Center (NOCC). Completed ahead of schedule in June 2006, the Mission Support network replaced the FAA's legacy, wide-area Administrative Data Transmission Network (ADTN) and is now online and being used to transport administrative functions such as payroll and e-mail. Harris is the prime contractor and system architect for the overall FTI program that was awarded in 2002. The announcement was made during the 51st Annual Air Traffic Control Association (ATCA) Conference and Exposition (Harris Booth #415) being held October 29 through November 1, 2006 at the Marriott Wardman Park Hotel in Washington, DC.
"Completion of the Mission Support network and transfer of its operational control to the FTI NOCC reduces the FAA's operating costs and offers the added benefits of improved network availability through the use of highly reliable, state-of-the-art equipment, enhanced security monitoring and a team of dedicated professionals managing the network around the clock," said John O'Sullivan, FTI program vice president, Harris Government Communications Systems Division. "The Harris team's ability to manage and operate the FAA's operational and administrative networks from a consolidated operations center creates a higher level of synergy and efficiency for the FAA."
The Mission Support network transition included the installation of new services at more than 800 FAA locations, ranging from the smallest staffed sites to FAA Headquarters in Washington, DC and large regional offices throughout the United States.
During the 15-year FTI program, Harris is upgrading and improving telecommunications and operations functions at more than 4,000 FAA facilities nationwide, providing the FAA with a secure, more efficient network that is projected to save hundreds of millions of dollars over the life of the program.
