Public Works selects TELUS to provide and manage the global telecommunications network for the Department of National Defence in $213M deal


Toronto, Ontario - TELUS today announced it has been selected by the Department of Public Works and Government Services Canada through a competitive RFP process to provide and manage the telecommunications services for the Department of National Defence (DND) including national and international locations. The Global Defence Network Services contract value is estimated at $213 million over five years.

“TELUS is honoured to partner with the Department of National Defence to support the innovative delivery of best-in-class secure communications with leading Internet Protocol technology,” said Darren Entwistle, TELUS President and CEO.

“This contract in support of Canada’s Department of National Defence is another step forward in the continued advancement of TELUS’ national growth strategy that was initiated in 2000. TELUS was the first to bring a national IP network to Canada, setting a North American industry standard. Today, the Canadian government has recognized the value that our investment in IP technology, and the TELUS team’s expertise, can bring to their entire constituency in Canada and around the world.”

TELUS will provide managed telecommunications services including voice, data, video and IP solutions to the Department of National Defence. The advanced telecommunications framework supports DND’s goals of accessing a cost-effective infrastructure that supports their current requirements and, at the same time, provides a secure IP backbone for new services and solutions.
