Our Rich Heritage
With origins tracing back to Bell Laboratories, Bellcore and Telcordia Technologies, Applied Communication Sciences has a deep and distinguished history. When Bell Communications Research (Bellcore) was formed as part of the 1984 divestiture of the Bell System, the majority of its technical staff was drawn from Bell Laboratories. A primary mission of Bellcore was to provide R&D and network operations systems for the regional "Baby Bells" while ensuring the overall reliability and evolution of the U.S. communications network.
Bellcore became Telcordia Technologies in 1997 as a result of new ownership and a broader corporate focus. When Telcordia was purchased by global telecoms provider LM Ericsson in 2012, Telcordia’s applied research group was spun off and became Applied Communication Sciences (ACS).
ACS was acquired in 2013 by Vencore , a proven provider of information solutions, engineering and analytics for the U.S. Government. As a strategic follow-on to this acquisition, the rebranding of ACS as Vencore Labs began in mid-2015.
While its name is changing, the Labs’ focus and differentiation continues to be in creating innovative, generation after-next technologies that solve the most difficult problems in information and communications.
