AT&T Global Public Sector is a trusted provider of secure, IP enabled, cloud-based, network solutions and professional services to the Federal Government .  We are dedicated to recruiting, developing and empowering a diverse, high-performing workforce that is passionate about what they do, committed to our shared values and dedicated to our customers’ mission.

Our Defense Team supports our Nation’s warfighters by providing, operating, and assuring critical voice, video, and data collaboration services for the full spectrum of military operations.

The JBSA Program Office has initiated the JBSA shared 5G Infrastructure (Test Bed), 5G Core security Experiments, and JBSA 5G System Integration Laboratory (SIL), which is a 5G critical strategic technology strategy, with expectations as an integrated extension of the Internet to mobile spaces, for the Department of Defense (DoD).  This 5G effort will provide advanced communications technologies, flexible bandwidth allocation (ultra-narrow to extremely broad), in-network core applications, ultra-low-latency and ubiquitous connectivity for DoD, military service components, and the Intelligence Community (IC) enabling long-term economic and military advantage. AT&T SCO will execute task orders awarded and integrate with other industry partners to rapidly develop state-of-the-art 5G solutions for DoD.

AT&T is also building out its own 5G experimental test bed to develop and explore new capabilities and provide prototype solutions for DoD business.

AT&T has an opening for a Senior Cybersecurity Architect to support customer requirements by providing in depth cybersecurity services by designing and developing the Software Defined Network/IT/RAN/ORAN/ONAP architectures and implementation plans of total systems solutions for the clientat Joint Base San Antonio, Texas.  The JBSA 5G Core Network (5GC) Test Bed is the heart and brains for the 5G Systems (5GS), and also serves as the anchor point for multi-access technologies, which enable Ultra Reliable Low Latency Communications (URLLC), Enhanced Mobile Broadband (eMBB), and massive Machine Type Communications (mMTC).  This is the least developed critical capability in the 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) defined 5G ecosystem, and therefore the least understood portion of the 5G architecture.  Moreover, 5G Core security experiments provide new flexible scalable capabilities for military 5G networks by demonstrating Network Slicing NFV, end-to-end (E2E) encryption, cybersecurity assurance platform, blockchain and physical layer security. These capabilities are intended to provide secure 5G enabled communication services that are fast, reliable, secure, flexible, and capable of securely operating in zero-trust network environment. The senior JBSA Cybersecurity Architect position will be required to support the JBSA program in conjunction with the JBSA 5G System Integration Laboratory (SIL) leadership to accomplish assigned JBSA shared 5G Infrastructure (Test Bed) and 5G Core security Experiments and task orders.
