AT&T to Provide Managed Data Network and Security Services to Amtrak

Amtrak awarded a new five-year outsourcing agreement to AT&T to provide a package of telecommunications networking services, including managed security services to help protect Amtrak's telecommunications network infrastructure.

AT&T will implement and manage Amtrak's Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN) and Enhanced Virtual Private Network (EVPN) to help connect more than 400 locations and converge multiple networks to a single, global network platform. AT&T will also manage 25,000 ports across Amtrak's LAN and WLAN. These technology solutions will help Amtrak to simplify the management of its telecommunications and support its efforts to deliver value to its customers faster.
