TeleCommunication Systems to offer managed network services to support U.S. operations


TeleCommunication Systems announced that it has been
awarded a contract with an estimated value of $11 million over five years to
provide managed network services, including integrated satellite, terrestrial
wireless, landline data and voice services, networking equipment, IT support
and network management in support of U.S. government operations in select
forward operating areas.


TCS’ managed network systems and services provide voice,
video and data services in remote and hostile areas lacking terrestrial
communication services and ensure high availability. TCS delivers complete,
end-to-end managed services for converged (IP-based) voice, video and data solutions
to organizations requiring seamless, highly secure connectivity between fixed
sites and remote operations.


TCS Managed Satellite Services solutions include private,
shared and outsourced network management through the company’s global network,
TCS-owned and operated satellite teleport infrastructure, 24 x 7 Managed
Services Operation Center and global field service force.


TCS  has established a
proven track record over the past decade as a trusted partner providing mission
continuity through cost-effective, highly reliable, secure satellite managed
network solutions for government customers and mobile operators worldwide.


“When it comes to mission-critical operations,
having reliable, secure satellite communications equipment and services is
utterly essential,” said Michael Bristol, senior vice president and
general manager of government solutions for TCS. “The U.S. government can
rest assured that TCS has an established track record of meeting or exceeding
customer expectations, and thus, their needs will be met.”


TeleCommunication Systems recently announced that it has
been awarded
a new order with a ceiling value of $60.8 million to provide Tactical SHF
Satellite Terminals (TSST) to the U.S. Army.


The order is initially funded at $53.1 million and will
be funded up to a total of $60.8 million if the options are fully exercised.
