CenturyLink Inc announced that it recently won a contract to provide secure cloud connectivity to the US Census Bureau that will help digitize the 2020 Decennial Census. CenturyLink's connectivity will support the public internet response system that will enable more than 125 million households to complete the 2020 Census online and allow the Census Bureau to access the responses via secure cloud applications for the first time.

The company will help digitize the 2020 Census by providing the Census Bureau with Managed Trusted Internet Protocol Services (MTIPS) at speeds of 40 Gbps or higher.

In addition to providing secure cloud connectivity, CenturyLink is committed to helping raise awareness of and participation in the 2020 Census. The company joins thousands of organizations, institutions and community partners in supporting the Decennial Census, which is the nation's largest peacetime mobilization effort.

MTIPS is a managed security service that provides secure connectivity to the internet and external networks. It enables agencies to comply with the Office of Management and Budget's Trusted Internet Connection initiative.

The Census Bureau task order runs from July 2019 until the end of December 2020 and was awarded via the General Services Administration's Networx Universal contract.
