Illinois School Upgrades Network Infrastructure for Campuswide Connectivity

Elgin, Illinois, January 31, 2007

AT&T Inc. (NYSE: T) today announced a new optical and data-networking services contract with Judson College, a premier four-year Christian liberal arts college in Elgin, Illinois.

Under the terms of the three-year contract, AT&T will be the primary voice and data services provider for Judson College and will implement a Synchronous Optical Network (SONET) ring, as well as Managed Internet Service (MIS), for an improved communications network across the college's campus.

The solution will support the addition of a new library on campus and will fulfill Judson College's need to accommodate additional network capacity by bundling all of the college's network connections on one continuous optical fiber structure. The solution will also provide high speed Internet access through IP-backed facilities managed by AT&T.

"We needed a communications provider that would enable us to provide our students with the most up-to-date and efficient technology for their academic endeavors," said Steven Dutcher, Judson College's vice president of Information Technology. "The optical networking services will not only support our new library and data center but will help us enhance our entire communications network so that we can support additional technologies in the future and continue to improve the educational experience for our students."
