Sprint announced plans to increase federal and public sector space market efforts with a converged-solution portfolio. Chris Felix was named Sprint vice president of government solutions and will lead the effort.

"It's exciting to see Sprint be more aggressive in this space," said Michael G. Mullen, former chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and a Sprint board member. "The company is a great American brand with decades of experience serving the government and will bring added value and innovation to many government organizations and agencies. I'm proud to support efforts that bring a diversified portfolio back to Sprint Business."

Felix has 27 years in the telecommunications industry, including serving the federal government and leading federal government sales and operations for Verizon.

Among the converged wireless, wireline and IoT solutions Sprint will deliver the federal and public sector are mobility, smart buildings, fleet and asset tracking, mobile forms and cloud. Sprint's relationship with the SoftBank Group will enhance its solutions. OneWeb, a satellite-based service, uses low-orbit satellites strategically located to provide abundant coverage everywhere to take advantage of all the technologies that leverage sensors, big data and communications, a statement said.

The Sprint 5G network will offer the federal government even more secure connectivity to mission-critical information, integrated GPS services to improve real-time situational awareness, and seamless handling of all the platforms that incorporate sensor-provided data, the company said.
