Cisco Selected by AT&T for Domain Network Equipment Supplier
Collaboration is a beautiful thing especially when two parties share the same goals and values. Our long-standing relationship with AT&T exemplifies this.
Today, Cisco was selected by AT&T as one of three domain suppliers for Internet Protocol (IP)/MultiProtocol Label Switching (MPLS)/Ethernet/Evolved Packet Core equipment for AT&T’s industry-leading IP network.
Cisco is proud to be selected by AT&T to continue to provide our innovative product family of solutions within the IP/ MPLS/Ethernet/Evolved Packet Core domain. This reinforces our long-standing, strong relationship with AT&T, a thought-leader within the communications arena.
AT&T’s Domain Supplier program, launched in September 2009, facilitates a more collaborative relationship with its equipment and software suppliers, ensuring that AT&T has the best technologies in place to serve its customers.
The confidence that AT&T has shown us is greatly welcomed. At Cisco, we like working with visionary companies, and AT&T is certainly one of them with a history and a future of aggressive deployments and innovative offerings that can change the market and raise the expectations of what’s possible for the networked experience for all of us.
Our collaboration with AT&T extends well beyond their Domain Supplier program. For example, earlier this year:
- AT&T became the first service provider to bring to market a network-based videoconferencing bridging capability that enables users of Cisco TelePresenceTM technology to hold inter-company telepresence sessions with both standard- and high-definition video equipment from multiple vendors.
- AT&T successfully completed a live network environment field trial of 100-Gigabit backbone network technology that was enabled by the Cisco Carrier Routing System (CRS).
We value our relationship with AT&T and remain eager to support AT&T’s business objectives.
