Sprint to construct private Internet for gov't agencies

WASHINGTON - Telecommunications giant Sprint announced plans Tuesday to launch a private IP network aimed at security-conscious U.S. government agencies by late June.

The new network, which doesn't yet have a name, will mimic Sprint's SprintLink enterprise-class, IP backbone network and offer most of the same features, except that it won't be connected to the public Internet. Sprint expects government agencies that want to be especially protective of data to be the first customers, said Steve Lunceford, a Sprint spokesman. The "government-grade" private Internet should have one or two government agencies as its customers by its launch in late June, he added.
