DISA selects AT&T for Hawaii network
AT&T has received a 10-year contract from the US Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) to deliver a modern communications network to replace its Hawaii network in the Pacific region.
AT&T will provide a custom, high-speed network to support Pacific Theatre military operations from the Hawaiian Islands. The upgrade will improve the military's ability to share information vital to their mission in the region.
The secure network will support integrated voice, video and data services. AT&T will manage the network for DISA over the life of the contract.
Anthony Robbins, vice president-Defense, AT&T Global Public Sector, said: ‘We're honoured to deliver capabilities that complement our vision of a 'network of the future' for DISA. We're equipping warfighters in the Pacific region with voice, data and video capabilities to help improve mission effectiveness.’
