CenturyLink Wins FCC Cloud Contract

Stocks in this article: CTL

WASHINGTON, Sept. 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --  CenturyLink, Inc. (NYSE: CTL) recently won a cloud hosting contract from the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) that could be worth nearly $1.1 million over the next three years.

The delivery order was awarded to Savvis Federal Systems Inc., a CenturyLink company. The company will provide managed, scalable public cloud hosting services for www.fcc.gov, myfcc.gov and the commission's other public website domains. The contract is for infrastructure as a service (IaaS) and includes migration of the existing website infrastructure to a CenturyLink cloud data center.

Last year, CenturyLink won two task orders to provide private Wide Area Network (WAN) services and Managed Trusted Internet Protocol Services (MTIPS) to the FCC. The two task orders could be worth close to $10 million over the course of five years.

By supplying cloud hosting services over a carrier-class network, CenturyLink is able to provide the FCC with the security and reliability it needs to carry out its missions, which include maintaining a strong communications infrastructure that supports our nation's economy, even during times of emergency.  

"CenturyLink is eager to leverage its extensive cloud hosting product portfolio to support the FCC's many missions, including the commission's efforts to encourage new technologies to flourish," said Diana Gowen, CenturyLink Public Sector senior vice president and general manager. "We look forward to adding our secure cloud hosting solutions to the WAN and MTIPS solutions we already provide to the FCC."

CenturyLink is ranked No. 48 on Washington Technology's 2013 Top 100 list of federal government IT contractors.
