AT&T flies high with USD400 million contract

13 Aug 2008

The US telco AT&T Inc has won a five-year contract to supply communications services to aircraft manufacturer Boeing. The USD400 million will see AT&T providing advanced network and wireless services to help Boeing enhance its business processes and increase productivity. AT&T will consolidate existing, disparate telecommunications networks into one ubiquitous, Internet Protocol (IP)-enabled voice and data network for Boeing. Once the contract has been fully implemented, AT&T will deliver wide area network services, voice services, audio conferencing, AT&T Managed Internet Service and wireless voice and data services. The Boeing contract follows a series of other large and strategic wins AT&T has secured in the past year, including major deals with Royal Dutch Shell, IBM, General Motors and the US Treasury.
