VIENNA, Va., May 15, 2008 — AT&T Government Solutions, a business unit of AT&T Inc. (NYSE:T), has announced that it has won a $292 million award from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS).

AT&T Government Solutions, which has 4,000 employees dedicated to serving the federal government, will serve as the secondary network service provider in the Eastern region as well as for the Western region for OneNet, an advanced, next-generation network. OneNet will consolidate seven legacy Wide Area Networks (WANs) into one secure Internet Protocol (IP) network infrastructure that will facilitate the future convergence of IP and wireless while driving data sharing across all components of DHS.

The award was made via the General Services Administration Networx Universal contract, a 10-year $20 billion contract vehicle that allows AT&T Government Solutions and others to provide a full range of telecommunications and related network services to the federal government.

“The Department of Homeland Security is tasked with the critical mission of leading the unified national effort to protect our country from a wide variety of constantly changing threats,” said Don Herring, senior vice president, AT&T Government Solutions. “AT&T looks forward to serving DHS as a trusted long-term transformational provider for OneNet.”
