AT&T continues to rack up government contract wins off of the General Services Administration's (GSA) Networx telecom services procurement program as it has now been awarded a $29 million WAN contract from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
As the primary communications provider for the agency's EPA WAN 2010 project, AT&T will deploy a managed IP network solution that it says is designed to modernize the EPA's WAN network architecture. To enhance the security of the EPA's network, AT&T will provide Managed Trusted Internet Protocol Services (MTIPS). MTIPS will help secure the EPA's Internet traffic with Intrusion Detection Services, Intrusion Protection Services, Incident Response, Managed Firewall Services, and Anti-Virus Management.
Leveraging its MPLS-based network, AT&T will also provide the EPA with other managed network services, including Project Management Office (PMO), operations, site deployment, network engineering and design, on-site installation, maintenance, training and proactive network management and reporting.
While government agencies have been somewhat slow to award contracts under the Networx telecom services procurement program, AT&T has won several other task orders with Social Security, Department of State and the Federal Trade Commission.
