AT&T is the sole awardee of a contract worth up to $74.6 million over five years, if all options are exercised, from the Defense Information Systems Agency.
AT&T will provide highly secure telecom services that support U.S. senior leadership communications between select Department of Defense aircraft and ground stations across the continental U.S. and around the world.
"We're proud to provide communications services to help defend our country," said Kay Kapoor , president, AT&T Global Business – Public Sector Solutions. "When the mission is vital and national security is at stake, our nation's leaders count on the AT&T network."
AT&T will provide long-haul telecommunications and related transmission circuits. These support the government's restricted-use, ultra-high frequency communications platform. The services are highly reliable and resilient to keep continuous communications under duress.
