AT&T Commences Global Managed Internet Service in India

AT&T has commenced provisioning of its Global Managed Internet Service (GMIS) to multinational customers in India. The service enables businesses to link multi-national sites through a dedicated direct, high-speed Internet connection. The service is available through private leased line in more than 50 countries and is now extended to India. It provides single-source Internet access backed by world-class customer support, around-the-clock management and industry-acclaimed service availability.

AT&T GMIS includes an end-to-end, managed Internet connectivity option for the customers. AT&T's end-to-end management starts from AT&T Global Internet Protocol (IP) Network to the optional managed routers on customers' premises. Customers' Internet traffic patterns are analyzed and AT&T GMIS can be configured according to the customers' specifications. Alternatively, customers can provision and maintain their own equipment.

  • In December 2008, AT&T announced the opening of its first data centre in Bangalore.

  • In October 2006, AT&T secured national long distance and international long distance licenses in India.
