Stephanie Kanowitz writes AT&T has spent $98 billion on its networks since 2008 and plans to grow its cloud technology, cybersecurity and mobility business.
Kay Kapoor, president of AT&T’s government solutions business, told the Washington Technology that the company is investing in technology as the government trims its spending.
Kapoor also told the publication her division seeks to further develop its cloud-based Managed Trusted Internet Protocol Service to help secure networks of 23 agencies.
AT&T won $1.6 billion in prime contracts during 2012, Kanowitz reports.
The company’s wins include Marine Corps order for 450 prototype smartphones running on Android and a position on a $3 billion contract to help the Department of Homeland Security acquire public safety communications services.
