VIENNA, Va., Dec. 14, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- AT&T* is putting our connectivity and communications innovations to work for the U.S. Navy and U.S. Marine Corps (USMC). We recently secured a new contract with the U.S. Navy to provide mobility solutions, services and devices.
The U.S. Navy awarded contracts potentially worth $993 million over 5 years for mobility services from carriers. Because we are one of the awardees, we can compete to supply advanced technologies to the U.S. Navy and USMC. Our goal is to help the U.S. Navy and USMC transform their operations and support the modernization of their forces.
The contract reflects a rigorous set of data-driven requirements and processes for managing wireless services and providers that the U.S. Navy developed based on vast experience acquired over the last 10 years.
The U.S. Navy and other defense and civilian agencies can buy our highly secure, innovative connectivity solutions. These include:
- Fleet Management and Asset Management solutions. These can help with efficiency, improved safety and cost savings for U.S. Naval and USMC fleet and assets across the U.S.
- Smart Base solutions that pair our network with IoT sensors to automate key systems on the base. These solutions can support water, energy and lighting management, public safety operations, perimeter security, transportation and more. They will help the branches operate more safely and efficiently and cut down on unnecessary costs.
