Globecomm Systems Inc. (NASDAQ: GCOM), a leading communications solutions provider, announced today that the Company has received a combined infrastructure and services contract from a major US Broadcaster valued at approximately $12.4 million to design, implement and provide 3 years of life cycle support services for their affiliate exchange network.
