AT&T Supplies Switched Ethernet to California Utility

AT&T was awarded a five year contract to supply its OPT-E-MAN switched Ethernet service to the East Bay Municipal Utility District (EBMUD), a water and wastewater service provider that serves more than 1.3 million residents in the San Francisco region. Switched Ethernet will be used to connect local access networks (LANs) within the same metropolitan area. AT&T will also deliver Ethernet Dedicated Internet Access (EDIA), a pure Ethernet solution for always-available Internet access. The municipal utility will also take advantage of a backup data center supported by AT&T's IP-enabled Ethernet Private Line Service (EPLS) backbone.
