AT&T Inc. today released details of a major global network expansion plan that it said is designed to meet the growth demands of its multinational enterprise customers.

The company is extending services, reach and access into additional locations in Europe, the Middle East, Africa, Asia, Latin America and in the United States, as part of AT&T’s previously announced US$8 billion capital investment in 2006.

Highlights of the planned expansion include extended dedicated MPLS-based IP access capabilities, giving service nodes in 127 countries, integration of 1,000 legacy SBC nodes into AT&T’s global MPLS-based network, and enhanced satellite, Wi-Fi and wireless access.

“Through our targeted investments, AT&T is now able to provide dependable network access to 97% of the world economy,” said David Denault, General Manager of AT&T Communications Corp. in Canada. “

“AT&T has made it a priority to deploy the infrastructure and network interconnections that allow multinationals organizations based in Canada, or with a presence in Canada, to operate seamlessly around the globe.”
