Sprint adds wireless service to FTS 2001

Sprint has added its PCS Vision wireless services to its offerings on the General Services Administration's FTS 2001 contract. PCS Vision includes high-speed connectivity for laptops and handheld devices, along with Web access, messaging and imaging for mobile phones and other devices on Sprint's PCS network.

Sprint and WorldCom Inc. were the first two vendors awarded the FTS 2001 contract, which expires in 2006. AT&T has since joined them. The vehicle allows agencies to purchase long-distance voice and data services.

Sprint also can provide services to agencies to wirelessly enable legacy systems, said Tony D'Agata, vice president and general manager for Sprint's Government Systems Division. That would allow workers in the field to use a database or program from a remote location, he said.
