Innovating for mission success
Empowering government with integrated solutions to connect, protect, virtualize, and manage across wired and wireless networks
AT&T Virtual Private Network Services (VPNS) allows customer agencies to easily interconnect their sites across metropolitan areas or around the globe. VPNS is an MPLS based architecture offering a wide range of connectivity options and features, including point-to-point, point-to-multipoint, Classes of Service (CoS), multicast, and interworking with Ethernet and IP networks. All infrastructure and devices involved in implementing the VPN are owned by AT&T and located at the edge of the AT&T backbone.
The Ethernet Transport Service (ETS) is the Layer 2 service offer that will connect customer agencies together at bandwidths scalable up to 10Gbps today, and higher speeds in the future, while also providing higher-layer protocol transparency. Offering the same flexibility over long distances that are enjoyed within an agency’s LAN, ETS will provide scalable Ethernet (i.e., Bandwidth-On-Demand) using the most current software-defined network technology.
Optical Wavelength Service
Agencies are provided protocol-transparent connectivity to their locations by use of the Optical Wavelength Service over Wave Division Multiplexing (OWS over WDM) service. AT&T has deployed long-haul WDM systems that support multiple concurrent SONET and Ethernet standards-compliant signals. This abundant system capacity enables agencies to benefit from competitively priced support of high-performance applications with rapid response to bandwidth demands, giving agencies unprecedented flexibility to handle large, unexpected traffic surges.
Private Line Service (PLS) provides global, dedicated, and reliable connections between endpoints, and features a wide range of bandwidth options. Agencies can choose link speeds from 64Kbps to 10Gbps that provide Layer 1 transport to required solutions. The following PLS types are available with both customer-provided access as well as integrated access: DS0, DS1/3, SONET, and E1/3.
The AT&T Synchronous Optical Network Service (SONETS) is a self-healing optical fiber network service providing highly reliable, secure, and dedicated connectivity for agency voice, data, telemetry, video, or multimedia and encrypted communications.
Flexible and scalable, Dark Fiber Service (DFS) offers dedicated fiber transport, and flexible configuration capabilities. Dark fiber is an optical fiber infrastructure (cabling and repeaters) that enables agencies to design their own optical networks, connect their own electronics to provide transport on fiber strands, and modify their networks as needed. DFS provides physical strands of fiber plant between agency service delivery points (SDP) and may also be terminated to an AT&T colocation. DFS offers simple point-to-point connections between two locations as well as configurations that interconnect multiple locations and can include intermediate amplification or repeater locations to extend service reach.
Internet Protocol Service
Internet Protocol Service (IPS) uses the TCP/IP protocol suite to provide agencies with interconnection to public ISP networks and other Government networks across the public Internet. IPS provides agencies with a wide range of connectivity options that support IPv4/v6 to enable Government users to access to the Internet, Government-wide intranets and extranets.
IP Voice Service
Internet Protocol Voice Service (IPVS) offers complete and robust voice communications services to agencies over a secure managed IP/MPLS VPN.
