AT&T Government Solutions has been awarded a $10.4 million contract to provide 911 services to the U.S Navy.
AT&T will continue to provide cloud based voice-over-IP (VoIP) enterprise 911 and call routing to Navy facilities across the U.S, according to a company announcement.
The network is underpinned by four AT&T data centers, as well as five regional dispatch centers and three local dispatch centers, that receive 911 calls. “The AT&T 911 platform enables seamless site integration within current Navy infrastructure and places the Navy in a pre-eminent place in addressing the 911 enhancements specified in the Ft. Hood After Action report,” said Kay Kapoor, president of AT&T Government Solutions.
