[AT&T signs contract with Amtrak to implement and manage its wireless network.]

AT&T today announced a new five-year outsourcing agreement with Amtrak, the nation’s passenger rail service. Under the contract, AT&T will provide a package of telecommunications networking services, including managed security services to help protect Amtrak’s telecommunications network infrastructure.

AT&T will implement and manage Amtrak’s Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN) and Enhanced Virtual Private Network (EVPN) to help connect more than 400 locations and converge multiple networks to a single, global network platform. AT&T will also manage 25,000 ports across Amtrak’s Local Area Network (LAN) and Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN). These technology solutions will help Amtrak to simplify the management of its telecommunications and support its efforts to deliver value to its customers faster.

Amtrak will be utilizing a broad set of security services from AT&T to help protect its mission critical website, and the personal information of every passenger. AT&T will implement Network and Premises-Based Firewalls, which will provide secure inbound and outbound Internet access directly into the telecommunications network. Through AT&T Intrusion Detection Services (IDS) and Intrusion Protection Services (IPS), AT&T will monitor Amtrak’s networking infrastructure for potential misuse from internal and external sources. AT&T IDS & IPS work together to help detect, contain, and neutralize endpoints on the network that are spreading threats or violating security policies. AT&T Private Intranet Protect will also allow Amtrak to analyze network traffic and potential threats – like worms, scanning and phishing sites – from inside or outside its VPN.

Under the terms of the contract, Amtrak will also use AT&T voice services, including Long Distance, Audio and Web Conferencing.
