AT&T Adds a 6th Videoconferencing Hub for DoD

AT&T Government Solutions is adding a sixth video hub location in southwest Asia for the global video teleconferencing service it provides to the Defense Department. AT&T Government Solutions maintains and operates video hubs around the world that are used by the DoD to conduct more than 2,000 video conferences per month for both command and control and administrative purposes. AT&T also operates a 24-hour-a-day network management center to support the video network, which can link up to 25 sites for a video teleconference. More than 3,000 military units around the world have access to the network, including U.S. Central Command.

In addition, the company was recently awarded a 22-month, $26 million contract extension to continue providing the service.
