MCLEAN, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--GTT Communications, (NYSE:GTT) the leading global cloud networking provider to multinational clients, announced today that it has been awarded an Information Technology Schedule 70 contract with the Government Services Administration. IT Schedule 70 is the largest acquisition vehicle in the U.S. federal government, providing government agencies with direct access to products and services from more than 5,000 industry partners.
The contract will allow federal, state, local and tribal government entities to select from GTT’s comprehensive portfolio of Internet, wide area networking services, managed services and voice services, avoiding the traditionally lengthy service procurement process.
The IT Schedule 70 award follows GTT’s announcement earlier this year that it had been selected to deliver its full set of bandwidth transport solutions globally to the Department of Defense’s (DoD) Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) under the Global Network Services (GNS) contract. As part of IT Schedule 70, GTT will have the opportunity to provide the same high-level, mission-critical network services to civilian agencies that it currently provides to DISA, as well as voice services.
Agencies that purchase services from GTT will have access to its global Tier 1 IP network, spanning 250 points of presence, as well as secure connectivity to cloud-based services and applications, through the company’s EtherCloud® wide area network services portfolio.
GTT provides multinationals with a better way to reach the cloud through its suite of cloud networking services, including wide area networking, Internet, managed services and voice services. The company’s Tier 1 IP network, ranked in the top five worldwide, connects clients to any location in the world and any application in the cloud.
