AT&T AND GSA ADD NEW VIDEOCONFERENCING CAPABILITIES TO FTS2000 CONTRACT.
AT&T today announced that it had signed a FTS2000 contract modification with GSA on November 15 that provides government customers with access to AT&T Global Business Video Services (GBVS) capabilities and business videoconferencing.
AT&T FTS2000 now provides government agencies with a number of features and capabilities that enable users to videoconference quickly and easily with business, industry and education.
Specific features include:
- Network Connectivity -- which enables users to videoconference with other organizations using different
network service providers and internal conference systems (both AT&T and non-AT&T). - Conversion Service -- which enables incompatible video equipment and equipment operating at different speeds to communicate. -
Multipont bridging -- which enables users to conference with three or more locations.
- Inverse Multiplexing -- which enables users to combine multiple transmission channels for increased bandwidth
capacity and improved video quality. - Access to AT&T's public video conferencing rooms nationwide.
"No service better illustrates the concept of anytime, anywhere communication than videoconferencing," said Rich Roca, AT&T FTS2000 program management vice president. "With this enhancement, AT&T has greatly increased the federal government's ability to conduct business via videoconferencing directly with outside organizations. This will drastically reduce decision-making time and travel costs, thus saving taxpayers money."
These AT&T FTS2000 enhanced videoconferencing capabilities are available now. Agencies interested in this service should contact their AT&T account representative for more information.
