DISA Awards $11.5M Contract to AT&T for Global Videoconferencing

The Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) awarded a $11.5 million six-month contract extension to AT&T to manage a global videoconferencing system for the Department of Defense. U.S. military commanders throughout the world communicate on the DISN Video Services-Global (DVS-G), the Department of Defense's all-service video teleconferencing (VTC) system.

Under the terms of the contract, AT&T will provide network management services for the DVS-G. AT&T will also provide such networking services as configuration and installation and inventory management services for DVS-G equipment.

The DVS-G operates six video hubs worldwide - four in the U.S., one in Germany and one in Kuwait. The DVS-G also supports conferences at the Department of Defense Unclassified, Secret and Top Secret classifications, as well as Allied and NATO Secret. AT&T developed, and has managed, the DVS-G for more than 10 years.
