AT&T And América Móvil To Provide Deeper National Reach For Advanced Enterprise Services Across Latin America

Enhancements to Interconnections Increase Connectivity, Local Depth and Options for Multinational Companies Operating in the Region

DALLAS, September 18, 2013 – Multinational companies operating in Latin America now have expanded reach and local depth in the region, the U.S. and globally thanks to enhanced network connections between AT&T* and América Móvil.

This is a major milestone in the alliance between AT&T and the América Móvil group of companies --which include Telmex, Embratel and Claro, amongst others-- to deliver global advanced enterprise solutions to multinational companies. Building on the existing capabilities and interconnections for the U.S., Mexico and Brazil, the new enhancements will allow broader regional coverage with deeper in-country reach:

  • Interconnection to América Móvil’s group of companies’ networks provides AT&T customers access to 15 markets in Latin America, with more than 2,000 MPLS-enabled IP services nodes and more than 50,000 service/access POPs covering: Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua, Paraguay, Peru and Uruguay.
  • More than 91,000 miles of América Móvil group of companies’ fiber optic network installed throughout the region, and 12 data centers in Latin America.
  • Six markets with enhanced Ethernet availability via América Móvil in Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, and Peru.

Additionally, interconnection to the AT&T global backbone network enables América Móvil MPLS-based services to reach 163 countries over 3,800 service nodes and 38 on-net data centers across the globe.

“AT&T’s goal is to provide delivery of a consistent global experience for our customers who continue to expand internationally, and especially in Latin America,” said Roman Pacewicz, AT&T Business Solutions senior vice president of marketing and global strategy. “The long-standing relationship with the América Móvil group of companies is a key pillar of our global strategy. The enhanced regional interconnection will allow us to provide deeper in-country reach in the entire region to match our client’s expanding presence in Latin America.”

“We are pleased to offer our mutual multinational clients the combination of AT&T’s footprint with the infrastructure of our operating companies, from Telmex to Embratel and Claro,” said Isidoro Ambe Attar, Corporate Executive Vice President at Telmex. “Enhanced global access and sound combination of core competencies and product portfolios will be essential for our clients to improve their productivity and efficiency through advanced solutions.”

AT&T offers enhanced VPN services and solutions to multinational companies doing business in or with operations throughout the Caribbean and Latin America. The IP-based AT&T Global Network allows the delivery of services, such as unified communications, and managed security, among others, around the world with consistent global standards of quality, reliability and security.
