The evolution towards converged services is gaining momentum. Subscribers are driving the demand for today's data-intensive 3G applications and services such as gaming and content. Mobile carriers need network solutions that are secure and reliable and provide optimized connectivity to any location - across the street or across the globe.
To achieve this, the network must scale to allow communications via voice, email, video or instant messaging. It must also be flexible enough to accommodate a continuous influx of new devices that rely upon a myriad of technologies and networks like Bluetooth, ZigBee, Wi-Fi, WiMAX, RFID, EV-DO, UMTS/HSDPA, mesh networks or OFDM. AT&T's award-winning data services facilitate the delivery of a wide spectrum of seamless and reliable services, spanning domestic and global network boundaries.
