GBS, working on a professional services contract was engaged to develop a submarine fiber optic cable system (SFOC) solution for the U.S. Army at the Ronald Reagan Ballistic Missile Test Site on the Kwajalein Atoll in the Marshall Islands. GBS senior consultants led the development and implementation of a 3000 km SFOC to connect Kwajalein Island to Guam. The project was an overwhelming success and was delivered on time and within budget. GBS conducted all studies and business cases leading to the $100M acquisition.
GBS, working on a professional services contract as a subcontractor to one of the world’s largest telecommunications carriers, was engaged to develop a dark fiber solution to connect remote service delivery points on Guam.
