Transforming the business of telecommunications—wirelessly
The Challenge for Telecommunications Companies
The 1996 Telecommunications Act opened the doors for anyone to enter the communications business. To survive in this environment, companies must distinguish themselves through greater customer satisfaction and improved efficiencies.
Meeting the Demands of Telecommunications Companies
Wireless access has become a competitive necessity for cable, satellite TV, telecommunications, and internet service companies in order to meet Service Level Agreements (SLAs), streamline communications and dispatch, reduce costs, and increase repair technician efficiency.
While the need for private networks was justified in the past, telecommunications companies are now recognizing the benefits gained when moving to a public network.
AT&T recognizes the significant investments that were made in private networks and proprietary applications. We also understand the importance of maintaining your private radio solution for certain emergency situations.
With our expertise in wireless, and the years of experience that our hardware, software, and system integration providers bring, we'll assist in determining the areas in which to deploy wide-area wireless solutions and build upon the experiences of other AT&T customers in the Telecommunications market.
