It Ain't This. ..

Just to avoid any confusion, this is NOT the contract for the SLERS replacement. This is the replacement for the SUNCOM network.

That would be correct. AT&T filed a formal protest and lost.

What exactly IS the SUNCOM network?

Because the DMS web site describes it as a framework for procuring and administering wired telecomm hardware and services.

A page separate from the SUNCOM heading describes SLERS and the Florida Interop Network. There's also a page that suggests to me that educational institutions and other entities use an unnamed communications system. So I'm confused here. Thanks.

Basically, it's the State of Florida's wide area telephone system. State agencies/departments can make calls anywhere within the state, between themselves or other state agencies, as if it were a local number.

It's also the conduit for the statewide MotoBridge network.
