NYC Renews Broadband Contract with Northrop Grumman

August 03, 2011  | 

The Northrop Grumman Corp. has received a five-year, $207 million contract renewal with the New York City Department of Information Technology and Telecommunications for ongoing operations and maintenance of the New York City Wireless Network (NYCWiN) program, which gives city agencies a secure broadband wireless infrastructure to support public safety and other city operations.

NYCWiN is a high-speed, mobile data network that spans New York City's more than 300 square miles and five boroughs. Under the terms of the contract renewal, Northrop Grumman will continue to provide operations and maintenance support, integration services and mobile application solutions to the network for enhanced and expanded public safety and public service applications for New York City agencies.

"NYCWiN has proven to be a secure, resilient, high-performance network that has brought significant public service and public safety benefits to New York City agencies," said Tom Afferton, director of Northrop Grumman's New York City programs. "We look forward to continuing to provide innovative applications and a reliable network to help the city operate more efficiently and increase public safety for citizens and visitors."

The network is currently being used by police officers to access a wide array of crucial information in the field, and by the city's Department of Environmental Protection, and the public, to track water use via automatic meter reading. Earlier this year, NYCWiN was also used to stream live video of plowed street conditions back to City Hall during blizzard conditions. Overall, the network supports more than 300 applications across dozens of agencies.

Northrop Grumman was awarded the initial five-year NYCWiN contract in 2006. The network became fully operational across New York City in 2009.
