AT&T’s Optical Mesh Service is the first of its kind to allow customers to build and self-administer their own SONET network using the award-winning AT&T BusinessDirect customer portal. Today’s announcement represents the latest in a series of initiatives by the company to drive new product portfolio offers to a broader base of business customers, post-merger.
The service is available now in 220 locations nationwide, enabling customers to speed bandwidth capacity to support data and applications to any pre-defined location on their network, when needed, and to seamlessly integrate networked applications and services in real time. The service is powered by AT&T’s Intelligent Optical Network, a self-healing network that connects multiple offices and locations on a single network and provides 99.999 percent availability, as well as proactive network management and maintenance.
AT&T Optical Mesh Service is especially beneficial as business customers increasingly rely on their networks to power revenue-generating applications, such as e-commerce and other platforms. Businesses large and small regularly need to reallocate bandwidth to priority applications in response to changing business conditions. [November 14, 2006]
