Integra Telecom gets seat on GSA Schedule 70 to serve federal agencies

Integra Telecom has put another brick in its large business war chest by being awarded a seat on the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) IT Schedule 70 contract.

Integra can provide its growing suite of wireline services to local, state, federal and tribal government agencies.

Being on Schedule 70, which is one of the largest and most used acquisition vehicles in the federal government, eliminates a big piece of red tape for Integra to be considered by government agencies that are looking for alternative service providers.  

While Integra had a growing presence in the government segment, Trent Anderson, Integra's vice president of enterprise sales, said in a company release that "being on the short list of approved providers allows us to show a much larger audience the value of the solutions Integra provides, whether it's voice and wireless services, Internet, MPLS, Ethernet solutions or other services."

These agencies will be able to access Integra's key services, including SIP trunking and its growing suite of copper and fiber-based Ethernet services that are part of the service provider's ongoing network expansion to appeal to larger businesses and government agencies.
