Vitro produces many of the glass items that America’s consumers use every day, such as windows for homes and offices, car and truck windows and windshields, food containers and beverage bottles. The contract calls for AT&T to provide an Internet Protocol Virtual Private Network (IP VPN) solution using Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) to 64 of Vitro’s regional offices and retail locations throughout the United States. AT&T will also provide DSL Internet service to 68 of Vitro’s other U.S. locations.
"AT&T plays an important role in helping Vitro to continuously strengthen our technology, while being mindful of our concern for budget and cost of ownership," said Luis Molina, Vitro’s IT Operations officer. "AT&T’s network solution ensures that our personnel have access to the data they need to operate efficiently, which helps improve our speed to market, quality and customer service."
By efficiently and cost-effectively linking Vitro’s offices, the AT&T solution will increase network access speeds, improving Vitro’s ability to share mission-critical information and manage inventory across the enterprise. The solution will also provide augmented security and network redundancy, creating a secure environment for data transactions across the network.
The contract also includes managed network services, domestic and international, long distance and toll-free services. [June 5, 2006]
