AT&T Government Solutions Selected as Subcontractor on $51 Million DVS II Contract
AT&T Will Help Northrop Grumman Build IP-Based Voice and Video Conferencing Network for DISA
Vienna, Virginia, February 14, 2006, AT&T Government Solutions has been selected to assist Northrop Grumman Mission Systems with a contract to build a modern, IP-based system to handle voice and video conferencing for the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA). The value of the contract could reach $51 million.
DISA’s Defense Information Systems Network Video Services II (DVS II) will allow U.S. military commanders to quickly and easily set up secure, high-speed audio and video conference calls across continents.
AT&T is the incumbent on the current DISN Video Services - Global (DVS-G) contract, which provides video bridging services to all military communities. Originally procured to handle administrative communications, DVS-G has evolved into an effective command and control network comprising six video bridging hubs that provide secure, 24-hour-a-day communications to 4,000 sites worldwide.
“We’re pleased that we could use our knowledge of the existing network and our skill at delivering services over IP to help the Northrop team win DVS-II,” said Lou Addeo, president of AT&T Government Solutions. “We’re very familiar with the challenge of transitioning legacy operations to IP and we believe that experience will be invaluable to Northrop and DISA on this project.”
