With nearly 1 million users globally, the U.S. Army has chosen AT&T for its latest contract to unify and modernize their communications capabilities.
We’re providing the Army with a new way to think about connectivity. Our services will make it easier for Army personnel to connect, collaborate and share information in support of daily operations globally. These services include voice, video, chat, instant messaging, presence and screen sharing. Army mechanics overseas can share screens with experts at a home station to speed repairs. Commanders and their staffs can use live video links to collaborate across different locations or direct troop operations abroad.
Army personnel in the U.S. and abroad will have access to these services on demand from their desktops, laptops and approved mobile devices. The Army will not need to buy new equipment. The services are cloud-based, and we will manage them. We are also delivering them in classified and highly secure unclassified formats.
“We’re honored to deliver capabilities that complement our vision of a ‘Network of the Future’ for the Army,” said Kay Kapoor, president, AT&T Global Public Sector. “These services will help the heroes who defend our nation to connect, share and keep us safe.”
The U.S. Army’s modernization efforts align with Department of Defense strategies to maintain the military’s technological advantage through the use of commercial cloud services.
