AT&T big on China's growth

AT&T Inc aims to strengthen its network infrastructure in China to provide diversified services such as high-quality video conference system as part of its global investment of US$1 billion on network-based services, the United States-based giant said yesterday.

The services it offers, including server hosting, data center and local area network, for both multinational corporations in China and homegrown firms help them save costs and focus on the core business, said Sainti Li, AT&T China's general manager.

AT&T is also seeking to expand the network infrastructure in Hong Kong and it plans to build more network access nodes in Shanghai, which allows it to expand network capacity and provide diversified services to clients.

Through its partners like China Telecom, AT&T provides unified communications systems, including the Telepresence video conference system, in China.

"Even in the tough environment, demand for telecommunications does not decline, especially in high-growth markets like China and India," Li said.

In 2008, AT&T's China revenue jumped 20 percent compared to 12 percent in the Asia-Pacific.

AT&T will spend US$1 billion to deploy or expand new sub-sea fibre optic cable capacity, including the Trans-Pacific Express, connecting Shanghai and Taiwan and places in Japan and the United States.

In the Asia-Pacific, AT&T has established 10 Internet data centers, including three in Shanghai.
