CenturyLink, Inc. (NYSE:CTL) recently won a contract with the State of Arizona to provide network connectivity and managed IT services that will support all state government agencies and transform how the state delivers services to residents.

CenturyLink is delivering the next generation of AZNet to Grand Canyon state residents.

The company will be providing local and wide area network management, WiFi, security, unified voice communications, contact center communications, IT management, data center and cloud-based services to the state under the new AZNet contract.

"The State of Arizona placed its trust in CenturyLink again to deliver a next-generation version of its mission-critical network known as AZNet," said Sonia Ramsey, CenturyLink vice president for the state and local government and education market.  "This is a great example of how we're helping government agencies of all sizes capitalize on the latest technologies to upgrade their networks and transform the delivery of vital services to citizens."

Having won the previous AZNet contract, CenturyLink recently won an expanded version that emphasizes modern, cloud-based integrated security, automation and orchestration services. The new contract has a five-year term and two one-year options.

The company already has more than 27,000 fiber route miles and nearly 13,000 on-net buildings in Arizona that help it deliver the latest network technologies around the state.
