AT&T boosted its ability to deliver advanced IP-based services to Latin American business customers with the signing of a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with America Movil (AM) through which each company will provide the other with access to its IP network infrastructure. Signed on Tuesday, the MOU is expected to enhance AT&T’s IP coverage in 15 Latin American countries and extend the ability of AM to offer IP-based services to its customers in the U.S. and internationally through the network of AT&T. In a joint statement, the partners indicated that, as part of their agreement, they will collaborate in expanding and enhancing their respective IP networks “to deliver the most sophisticated services and solutions to multinational companies in and from emerging markets.” Building upon the companies’ long-standing relationship, which has spanned two decades, AT&T and AM also pledged to work together to integrate advanced technologies into their networks and to automate and streamline processes “for delivering and supporting network services and solutions.” Observing that that the agreement will enable his company “to support our multinational customers wherever their business takes them,” an official of AT&T noted that the MOU forms part of his company’s strategy “to establish alliances in key regions of the world.”
