The MTA launched a request for proposal in September 2013 for a project encompassing and creating a fully redundant core data network across the three core data centers and upgrade user access to applications and facilities throughout NYC Transit.
Vicom will design, install and maintain data communications hardware, software and a comprehensive enterprise management system for a network infrastructure upgrade at three NYC Transit core data center locations, six concentrator locations, 58 major facilities and approximately 250 smaller remote network locations throughout NYC Transit.
The MTA received a total of nine proposals. The due diligence process encompassed an evaluation by the Technical Committees to select three finalist whom then provided an oral presentation on the total solution and implementation strategy.
“The commitment and value Vicom put forth started at the first meeting. The Vicom Team is eager and committed to implementing this service and solution for the MTA.” stated Bob Verola, CEO – Vicom Computer Services, Inc.
