AT&T inks Cloud deal with FCC

Telecom network operator AT&T announced its deal with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to transform its business with cloud services.

The duration of the contract is five years. AT&T did not disclose the size of the deal. AT&T will provide an IP solution that will support mobile and cloud-based applications for FCC. The service will link a number of offices and data centers and let the FCC change network and Internet needs on demand. Using AT&T’s services, the FCC can connect to diverse cloud service providers.

AT&T says the Cloud solution is compliant with federal government security rules. That includes the Managed Trusted Internet Protocol Service (MTIPS) requirement for improved security. AT&T claims that it is secure and reliable with built-in redundancy to keep business operations up and running.

“Our set of strategic services can help the FCC modernize its technology and use cloud services in a highly secure manner,” said Mike Leff, vice president-Civilian, AT&T Government Solutions.
