In addition to its federal clients, Jacobs’ commercial customers in the telecom end-market also benefit from the company’s expanded channel partner agreements and technology lifecycle management offerings. In the past year Jacobs has bolstered its telecom capabilities for both public and government clients, supported by a number of acquisitions that together enhance its ability to provide a broad suite of information technology and telecommunications services across multiple end-markets.
