Sprint has wired the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission into its government-grade network, a secure network that does not connect to the public Internet. EEOC officials plan to use the connection as a redundant backup to an existing frame relay network, according to agency officials.
Sprint has been a provider for EEOC since 1989, according to Sprint officials.
The company launched the IP-based network last year and counts the FBI and the National Guard among its users. This year, the company added a virtual private network solution to the network.
