AT&T wins seat on the Army's new $4.1B network contract

AT&T (NYSE: T) Government Solutions has won a $4.1 billion, five-year indefinite delivery-indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract to deploy communications and transmission systems for the Project Manager, Defense Communications Army Transmission Systems (PM DCATS) program.

The company will provide the Army with an array of wireline and wireless services, including satellite, microwave, fiber and ancillary support services.

This is one of many new contracts AT&T Government Solutions has announced this year.

In addition to the Army, the service provider won $53 million in data network contracts with the U.S. Postal Service in August.

Earlier, it secured a seat on the GSA Region 4 Integrated Telecommunications Services (GRITS II) contract, which supports federal customers in the Southeast Sunbelt Region, and won a seat on the HP-led team for the Navy's Next Generation Enterprise Network contract. 

Securing a seat on the Army contract and others come under the purview of new leadership at AT&T Government Solutions. In February, the telco named 25-year government contractor veteran Kay Kapoor to head up the unit.
