AT&T Government Solutions will continue managing a global videoconferencing system for the Defense Department under a six-month, $11.5 contract extension that the Defense Information Systems Agency awarded.
All branches of the military use the videoconferencing system. It links military commanders together to confer on decision-making. The system supports more than 5,000 units around the world.
AT&T will provide network management services, and other services such as configuration, installation and inventory management.
AT&T developed the system and has operated it for more than a decade. It includes four network hubs in the United States, one in Germany and one in Kuwait.
AT&T Government Services is a division of AT&T of San Antonio, Texas. The parent company ranks No. 67
on Washington Technology's 2007 Top 100 list
of the largest federal government prime contractors.
