Level 3 Communications Inks NATO Deal

Telecom giant Level 3 Communications (NYSE: LVLT  ) announced Monday that its affiliate Level 3 Communications B.V., has signed a contract with the NATO Communications and Information Agency to install and take care of an IP Virtual Private Network for the NATO-Russia Council Cooperative Airspace Initiative (NRC CAI), an information exchange between NATO countries and Russia to prevent aerospace terrorism.
