TeleCommunication Systems, Inc. (TCS) /quotes/zigman/83919/quotes/nls/tsys has been awarded a contract with an estimated value of $11M over five years to provide managed network services, including integrated satellite, terrestrial wireless, landline data and voice services, networking equipment, IT support and network management in support of U.S. government operations in select forward operating areas.


TCS' managed network systems and services provide voice, video and data services in remote and hostile areas lacking terrestrial communication services and ensure high availability. TCS delivers complete, end-to-end managed services for converged (IP-based) voice, video and data solutions to organizations requiring seamless, highly secure connectivity between fixed sites and remote operations. TCS Managed Satellite Services solutions include private, shared and outsourced network management through the company's global network, TCS-owned and operated satellite teleport infrastructure, 24 x 7 Managed Services Operation Center and global field service force. TCS has established a proven track record over the past decade as a trusted partner providing mission continuity through cost-effective, highly reliable, secure satellite managed network solutions for government customers and mobile operators worldwide.


"When it comes to mission-critical operations, having reliable, secure satellite communications equipment and services is utterly essential," said Michael Bristol, senior vice president and general manager of government solutions for TCS. "The U.S. government can rest assured that TCS has an established track record of meeting or exceeding customer expectations, and thus, their needs will be met."
