Army Corps gives AT&T networking nod

The Army Corps of Engineers warded a five-year, $2.2 million data networking contract to AT&T Government Solutions. The company will supply networking services to 34 regional offices in four states.

The regional offices are part of the Corps' Great Lakes and Ohio River Division.

AT&T will build a Multi-Protocol Label Switching-based, IP-enabled frame relay network to allow personnel in the offices to exchange large amounts of data.
