According to the five-year agreement, CenturyLink will provide Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) services to GSA Region 8 offices throughout Colorado, Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, Wyoming and Utah.

"We've successfully worked with GSA Region 8 for decades as a provider of Centrex and business voice services, and we're delighted that GSA has chosen CenturyLink to provide turn-key VoIP services to GSA's customer agencies in the Rocky Mountain region," said Diana Gowen, CenturyLink senior vice president and general manager, who oversees solutions for federal, state and local government customers.
Meanwhile, Savvis, a CenturyLink company and provider of cloud infrastructure and hosted IT solutions, recently announced that XM Asia Pacific, a provider of digital marketing and technology consulting services, will host its clients' digital engagement platform on Savvis' enterprise-class cloud infrastructure.
