AT&T has detailed several service expansions and contract wins with industry partners in a move aimed at helping to meet customers’ requirements for mobility and cloud platforms.
Andy Geisse, CEO of AT&T business services, told more than 70 industry analysts gathered at AT&T’s Dallas-based headquarters about how the company has moved forward in expanding its platforms for mobility, security and cloud computing technologies, AT&T said.
The company announced an agreement with Microsoft to integrate AT&T’s virtual private networking service into Microsoft’s Windows Azure cloud platform, as well as another deal with SAP for AT&T customers to build and deploy mobile apps using the SAP Mobile Platform.
New AT&T mobile security services are scheduled to launch in late 2013 with the goal of building up networks to address the growing number of distributed denial of service attack landscape.
AT&T also plans to extend its network coverage in Latin America in partnership with America Movil, as well as deploy fiber to nearly 250,000 business clients by the end of 2013 and to an additional one million customers by the end of 2015.
Air China, a mobile communications and technology provider and Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication in the Middle East are among the other customer wins of AT&T.
