Project Description

This project will acquire new telecommunications network equipment to replace aging, obsolete equipment. Improvements funded by this project include, but may not be limited to, replacing failing routing equipment used for data storage, purchasing servers for circuits to be used on the Union Pacific Lines, replacing camera firewall routers, and installing new telecommunications switches. This project supports planned improvements to the video storage system, the ACORN project, and the fiber optic network along the Rock Island (RI) and SouthWest Service (SWS) Lines.
