AT&T Solution Supports Centralized Network for Ammeraal Beltech

Skokie, Illinois, February 7, 2008

AT&T Inc. (NYSE:T) has announced a new contract to deliver an advanced networking solution to Ammeraal Beltech, one of the global market leaders in process and conveyor belts. Ammeraal Beltech has production facilities in six countries, assembly facilities in more than 20 countries and an extensive distribution network in 85 countries.

Under terms of the three-year contract, AT&T will serve as the primary network and data services provider for Ammeraal Beltech and will deliver a new Virtual Private Network (VPN) solution to 11 domestic locations. The AT&T solution will support a centralized network with consistent service and reliable availability for Ammeraal Beltech.

With the improved bandwidth of the VPN solution, AT&T will meet the company's demand for fast and efficient data traffic of business-critical corporate information among facility locations. The robust and secure Internet Protocol (IP)-based network will also satisfy corporate and networking demands, such as interoffice collaboration, and it will provide scalability for the future implementation of Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP). The new network services will also help reduce Ammeraal Beltech's overall monthly costs while maintaining a superior standard of network performance.

"We needed a reliable, centralized networking solution to meet our demand for quick and efficient data transfer among our company's 11 domestic facilities," said Robert Vodick, U.S. information technology manager, Ammeraal Beltech. "The cost-effective VPN solution provided by AT&T not only improves our efficiencies and security but also offers the flexibility to implement innovative technologies and resources in the future."

The VPN solution uses AT&T's Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) network and provides a safe, fully private and converged network. Also included is the use of the AT&T BusinessDirect® Web portal for personalized, secure, anytime access to detailed information regarding critical network services. With the AT&T BusinessDirect portal, Ammeraal Beltech will also be able to view, analyze and pay its bill online.
