CenturyLink Wins FCC Orders Worth Up to $9.6 Million

CenturyLink Inc. on Wednesday announced winning two orders from the Federal Communications Commission that are worth up to a total of $9.6 million over the next five years.

Both task orders were awarded under the General Services Administration’s Networkx Enterprise contract.

CenturyLink won an order to provide wide area network services to the FCC, including private-line services and network-based Internet Protocol virtual private network services. The deal is worth nearly $7 million over the next five years, including $1.23 million for the first year and $5.76 million over the following four years if all four one-year options are exercised.

CenturyLink also announced a deal to provide managed trusted IP services to the FCC. The order is worth $472,000 for the first year and $2.17 million over the following four years if all four one-year options are exercised.

Separately, CenturyLink last month announced an agreement to provide hosted and premised-based VoIP services to the Rocky Mountain region of the GSA. The telecom provider, which acquired Denver-based Qwest Communications last year, will deliver services to the GSA Region 8 offices located throughout Colorado, Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, Wyoming and Utah.
