DISA orders AT&T circuits

The Defense Information Systems Agency has ordered circuits from AT&T Government Solutions — 36 secure, high-capacity circuits for about $8.2 million. The orders for the circuits came under a contract called Defense Information Systems Network (DISN) Transmission Services-Continental U.S. Extension, or DTS-CE.

The company will supply private, point-to-point circuits that comprise DISN’s backbone. The network ultimately provides voice and data services to soldiers in the field.

The domestic circuits AT&T provides will carry voice and data traffic, and they will be used for command and control and administrative purposes.

The order under DTS-CE is not related to the $95.4 million DISA contract that AT&T announced earlier this month, according to a company spokesman. AT&T, along with MCI and Sprint, won a place on the multiple-award DTS-CE contract in 1999, according to earlier reports.
