U.S. CBP Selects AT&T to Modernize Network
Monday, September 26, 2022 | Comments

U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) awarded AT&T a task order to modernize the agency’s voice and data networks to help ensure reliable, high-speed wireline and wireless connectivity among CBP’s federal law enforcements nationwide.

The task order is valued at $119 million over 11 years if all options are exercised. The order was awarded through the General Services Administration’s Enterprise Infrastructure Solutions contract.

CBP has more than 60,000 employees and on a typical day, apprehends more than 1,000 individuals for suspected crimes. The agency also screens more than 1 million international travelers and processes more than 74,000 truck, rail and sea containers per day.

The task order is an expansion of AT&T’s work for CBP. AT&T will provide services including virtual private networking (VPN) services, cloud connectivity, national security and emergency preparedness services, audio conferencing capabilities, and managed network and security services, among others. AT&T is expected to provide CBP with reliable, highly secure connectivity to support voice and data communications across the enterprise. Under the agreement, CBP has the option to acquire additional capabilities from AT&T, such as managed trusted IP services, IP-based voice and unified communications.

"This new task order allows us to deliver our advanced communications capabilities to support the important work CBP's agents do, day in and day out, to protect our nation at all points of entry: from our borders to airports and seaports,” said Stacy Schwartz, vice president FirstNet, AT&T public sector and FirstNet. “It's an honor to be able to serve those who serve us by ensuring they have speedy, reliable access to the data critical to support their mission, their agents, and all Americans."
