Griffith, Indiana, May 29, 2008
AT&T Inc. (NYSE:T) today announced a new voice and Internet Protocol (IP) services contract with Bulkmatic Transport Co., a leader in dry bulk cargo shipping and distribution. Addressing bandwidth issues and network reliability, AT&T's network solution will support traffic for more than 30 domestic locations on a consolidated, integrated platform.
Under the terms of the three-year contract, AT&T — Bulkmatic Transport Co.'s primary voice and network provider — will deploy its Private Network Transport (PNT), a fully managed network solution that runs on Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) technology.
