These new Wi-Fi hot spots are the latest enhancements to AT&T’s Enterprise Mobility Portfolio, which is designed to provide today’s workforce with flexible and secure mobile access to their corporate virtual private networks (VPNs). Wi-Fi enables access from home, corporate locations, international airports, hotels and convention centers through remote connection to the network through the AT&T Global Network Client.
“The addition of these new Wi-Fi hot spots throughout Europe and Asia provides our customers with the ability to work anywhere, at anytime with full access to the Internet,” said Mark Keiffer, chief marketing officer-Business, AT&T. “AT&T’s enterprise mobility offerings provide global customers connectivity options to securely, effectively and seamlessly integrate and access their enterprise.”
“Working with AT&T, we are able to offer additional Wi-Fi capabilities that extend AT&T’s global footprint through our partner networks,” said Toni Stadelmann, CEO of WeRoam. “WeRoam brings a neutral roaming platform supporting open standards and its WLAN expertise to the service of AT&T.”
AT&T’s total Wi-Fi hot spot count available to AT&T Remote Access business customers now exceeds more than 33,000 locations worldwide and will continue to expand as part of AT&T’s previously announced $8 billion to $8.5 billion expected capital investment in 2006. As part of this, AT&T operates nearly 11,000 hot spot locations throughout the U.S., including airports, Barnes & Noble bookstores and select McDonald’s restaurants.
