AT&T re-enlists with Navy for VoIP service
AT&T Government Solutions, a division of AT&T that serves federal agencies, announced it had landed a $10.4 million contract with the U.S. Navy to provide VoIP services to Navy facilities across the nation.
The renewed contract provides AT&T’s cloud-based VoIP enterprise 911 routing and call handling offerings to the Navy via four geographically diverse AT&T data centers. AT&T said its data centers provided a reliable network backbone and full operational redundancy.
In total, 61 call taker workstations have been deployed at five regional dispatch centers (RDCs) and three "hybrid" local dispatch centers to receive 911 calls. In addition, AT&T said its platform supported future migration to enhanced 911 or next generation 911 services.
"The AT&T 911 platform enables seamless site integration within current Navy infrastructure and places the Navy in a pre-eminent place in addressing the 911 enhancements specified in the Ft. Hood After Action report,” said Kay Kapoor, president, AT&T Government Solutions.
