Aviat Networks Partners With AT&T Government Solutions For Department Of Homeland Security Business

SANTA CLARA, Calif., Aug. 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Aviat Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ: AVNW), a leading expert in microwave networking solutions, today announced that it has been named as the microwave subcontractor on the AT&T Government Solutions' team to compete for orders to provide tactical communications equipment to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS). DHS awarded the contract with potential of up to $3 billion in business over a five-year period of performance to 30 companies for commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) equipment, infrastructure and related services.

Under this contract for the DHS Tactical Communications (TACCOM) program, Aviat Networks will provide DHS and other federal agencies with the capability to acquire leading microwave radio communication equipment, engineering, design, installation and maintenance services to meet mission-critical operations. The contract is for an indefinite delivery and indefinite quantity (IDIQ) of tactical communications equipment and services. Other agencies such as the White House Communications Agency and the departments of Interior, Justice and State can also use the IDIQ to purchase equipment. IDIQs provide for an indefinite quantity of products/services for a fixed time and help streamline the contract process and speed service delivery.

AT&T Government Solutions selected Aviat Networks as its microwave communications partner based on a history of previous partnership in the federal technology space. In addition, AT&T Government Solutions recognizes Aviat Networks' specialized knowledge of DHS requirements gained by working directly with the agency on earlier projects. Because DHS has a unique mission to secure the United States " from the many threats we face," AT&T deemed Aviat Networks one of the best choices for hardened point-to-point communications as the industry's reliable, secure and trusted provider of mission-critical microwave.

Aviat Networks will supply AT&T Government Solutions with microwave radios that operate in all current NTIA-designated bands. Aviat Networks' NTIA-certified radios support the DHS mission today.
