Fujitsu Signs AT&T Managed Networking Services Contract for Telepresence Deployment
Global Company Continues Its Commitment to Safeguard the Environment
Sunnyvale, California, January 7, 2009
AT&T Business Solutions announced today that Fujitsu in North America has signed a two-year contract for a fully managed Internet Protocol Virtual Private Network (IP VPN) and Integration Solutions supporting a High Definition Telepresence system.
AT&T Integration Solutions portfolio will provide Fujitsu with a complete networking and equipment design for Telepresence along with global project management of its AT&T system implementation and testing between Sunnyvale, Calif., and Kawasaki, Japan.
Fujitsu, which considers the green impact in all that it does, has been deeply committed to safeguarding the environment for current and future generations. As such, the two Telepresence sites supported by the AT&T IP VPN — in Sunnyvale and Kawasaki — will reduce the amount of travel required by Fujitsu employees, while allowing more frequent interaction and maintaining the same level of collaboration needed between the two sites. The AT&T solution is designed to help Fujitsu reduce travel costs, increase productivity and bring to market faster product delivery.
"The Telepresence solution is a natural progression for us in our quest to conserve energy and natural resources," said Jeff Meier, North American chief information officer of Fujitsu. "AT&T Business Solutions is a valued partner providing Fujitsu with a High Definition video solution while meeting our environmentally focused objectives."
Fujitsu currently uses the Telepresence sites for management meetings, product design meetings and cross-functional teaming.
