US-based telecommunications giant AT&T is looking to encourage more large and medium enterprises around the world – including in New Zealand – to consider managed network services as a means of simplifying the work of their IT departments.
The company last month introduced a new solution, AT&T Network Sourcing, that offers everything from network consulting and design to management and integration to planning for future network upgrades.
AT&T has a team of around 40 people in New Zealand, based in offices in Auckland and Wellington.
Don Herring, senior vice president of AT&T, says network sourcing is one way for large and medium enterprises to deal with the increasing complexity of IT demands.
"We have taken our experience managing networks for very large, global enterprises and integrated it into a flexible solution for a broader set of customers,” Herring says.
Support services on offer include enterprise mobility, security, voice, IP telephony, virtual private networking, local area networking, and cloud solutions.
AT&T’s local customers include the New Zealand branches of many multi-national organisations, as well as organisations with large global footprints such as New Zealand Trade & Enterprise and Fisher & Paykel.
