CenturyLink Gains Texas DIR Contract

March 2nd, 2018 by · 1 Comment

CenturyLink has been awarded a managed services contract with the State of Texas Department of Information Resources. The win follows a 2013 award that first brought CenturyLink’s capabilities to the agencies that procure services through the Texas DIR five years ago.

Included in this managed services contract are both data services, in the form of device management, network management, management and back-up configurations, and management of wireless LANs, and communications services, in the form of management of both on-premises and off-premises IP telephony, quality of service monitoring, remote implementation of telephony hardware, fault management and reporting.

CenturyLink is of course busy right now with the Level 3 integration, which has brought significant scale to the company’s business with government entities, whether state, federal, or international. I’m still trying to figure out what to expect from the combined company on both organic and inorganic fronts.

    Hi, Rob. I’ve been an investor in Level 3 for years, and enjoyed reading your commentary on the company before as well as after the CenturyLink acquisition. Unless I missed it, I’m surprised you didn’t post anything about their most recent earnings results.
