AT&T says it plans to invest upwards of US$1 billion this year to scale its delivery of applications, mobility and cloud services, expand small business services and extend its global network.

 

“IP-based solutions and applications have become ever more important to companies aiming to take their productivity to a new level while transforming their operations to adapt to their customers’ changing needs,” said Ron Spears, President and CEO of AT&T Business Solutions. 

 

Including this year’s planned investment, AT&T said it will have invested more than $4 billion since 2006 in business-focused network, systems and applications to provide a services to its customer base.

 

 The company said it is capitalizing on the ongoing shift in network traffic from voice to data and video — and more importantly to IP-based data and video — as organizations migrate from legacy data networks to MPLS-based virtual private networks and managed applications.
