AT&T is planning investments totaling upwards of US$1 billion in 2011 to deploy next-generation services for businesses ranging from the smallest firms to the world’s largest and most sophisticated multinational companies.

The company intends to invest in five key focus areas that include enterprise mobility applications and cloud/as-a-service enhancements, while also rolling out platforms, systems and e-capabilities to “automate, enhance and simplify business customers’ experience and support.” 

“We continue to invest significantly in cloud-based, mobility and network sourcing solutions because customers are increasingly recognizing that transformative services like these increase productivity, improve operational effectiveness and lower costs,” said John Stankey, president and CEO of AT&T Business Solutions.

AT&T said revenues from these and other new-generation capabilities including Ethernet, virtual private networks, hosting, IP conferencing and application services grew 18.8% in the first quarter of this year.
