AT&T Introduces Optical Mesh Service

AT&T introduced an Optical Mesh Service that allows customers to build and self-administer their own SONET network. The service, which is available now in 220 locations nationwide, permits enterprise and wholesale customers to reallocate bandwidth as needed by increasing or decreasing capacity in real time. Customers can provision additional network capacity with rates up to OC48 via AT&T's customer portal, AT&T BusinessDirect.

The service is powered by AT&T's Intelligent Optical Network, a self-healing network that connects multiple offices and locations on a single network and provides 99.999 percent availability, as well as proactive network management and maintenance.

"This new service puts the power and reach of the AT&T network directly into the hands of customers, enabling unprecedented control over how they choose to route network traffic and increase or decrease the amount of bandwidth needed at any time," said Sandy Brown, vice president, Business Services, AT&T.
