AT&T Announces Voice and Data Services Contract with the State of Nevada
Voice and Data Solutions Support Advanced Applications to Help State Offices Improve Service to Residents
San Antonio, Texas, May 4, 2006
AT&T Inc. (NYSE: T) today announced a new voice and data services contract, making AT&T the premier transport communications provider to Nevada's State Department of Information Technology, spanning 16 of the 17 counties throughout the state.
Under the terms of the two-year contract, AT&T will expand its existing relationship with the State of Nevada by providing an Integrated Services Digital Network Primary Rate Interface (ISDN PRI), Centrex and voice and data hardware. These services will provide a statewide, cost-efficient, locally managed communications network. This contract will enable Nevada's State Department of Information Technology to coordinate and manage the deployment of services to all Executive Branch agencies through a single integrated network.
The enhanced services will support high-volume access and high speed data transfer across the public-switched network, accommodating voice, data, image and video over the same digital facilities. These services will also streamline internal office communications and help to efficiently manage incoming and outgoing calls to reduce overall cost.
The integration of improved voice and data services will enable Nevada's State government agencies to perform critical public safety functions, interconnect departments with related requirements and share applications between entities to better serve the public. Additionally, this solution, through its alignment with AT&T's convergence strategy, will make it possible for the state to reach unparalleled levels of efficiency and cost effectiveness.
"We were in search of a voice and data solution that would allow us to operate more efficiently, provide the needed technologies of the future, and enable entities to share applications." said Dave Richards, information systems manager, Telecommunications, Nevada State Department of Information Technology. "We're confident the solutions provided by AT&T will enable the state to meet its needs and ultimately deliver the best service to the residents of Nevada."
