AT&T has received authority to provide unified communications services to unclassified users in the continental U.S.
AT&T’s recent Authority to Operate status follows the October 2017 announcement that the Army had selected AT&T to deliver services in support of nearly 1 million Army users. Those services include voice, video, chat, instant messaging, presence and screen-sharing services. Company officials said they’re on track to deliver those capabilities to the first set of Army users in the third quarter of this year.
“The U.S. Army has validated our readiness to modernize the way its warfighters and staff connect, collaborate and share information using our connectivity capabilities,” said Mike Leff, vice president of defense for AT&T Public Sector.
The company expects to receive authority to operate from the Army for providing services to classified users and outside the continental U.S. early next year.
