AT&T installs fiber to 32 multi-tenant office buildings across Nevada
Dec 03, 2013 (MarketLine via COMTEX) --
AT&T, a telecommunications corporation, has announced that its service crews have installed fiber to an additional 32 multi-tenant office buildings across Nevada making fiber-based broadband services available to more than 600 business customer locations.
The effort is part of AT&T's Project Velocity IP (VIP), a three-year investment plan to expand and enhance the company's wireless and wireline IP broadband networks, including deploying its fiber network to an additional 1 million business customer locations in its wireline service area by year-end 2015.
Under the fiber to the building program, Nevada businesses in these AT&T Fiber Ready Buildings have access to an expanded array of security, network and cloud-based services, all of which ride on the fiber network. Specifically, companies in these buildings can more quickly and seamlessly perform such tasks as: uploading and downloading large data files and images; sharing large files with employees or customers in other locations; uploading edits to company websites; backing up data remotely in the cloud at one or multiple locations; and videoconferencing with suppliers, business partners and customers.
The services are especially beneficial to businesses that regularly handle huge files such as medical images, illustrations, videos, engineering designs, and large presentation decks.
AT&T Fiber Ready buildings provides reliable and highly secure access to leading business technology solutions, including cloud; Virtual Private Network (VPN); and Voice over IP (VoIP); options for adding equipment to enhance in-building wireless coverage and speeds; high-speed internet access over Ethernet with upload and download speeds of up to 1 Gbps; and improved efficiency by converging voice and data over the same network.
"By offering blazing-fast upload and download speeds, generally available to only large businesses, AT&T Fiber Ready buildings can take small and medium businesses to the next level," said Stephanie Tyler, president of AT&T Nevada. "Fiber-based wired and wireless services bring the world to our business customers, but, just as important, they also help bring these customers to the world."
The program also offers benefits to property owners and managers, with more appeal to potential tenants by providing access to the most advanced telecommunications services and allows the deployment of fiber-based electronic equipment that can serve multiple tenants, streamlining the installation process and minimizing disruption.
