AT&T builds on US Airways deal

AT&T has broadened its relationship with US Airways
Group by agreeing to a $7 million networking equipment
agreement.In January 2006 the two companies affirmed a long-standing
relationship in which AT&T helped US Airways consolidate the network
infrastructure of two separate airlines into one.
  Under terms of the agreement, AT&T will provide US Airways with Cisco
hardware equipment bundled with its next-generation MPLS-based IP network
to service more than 230 airport locations. AT&T’s next-generation network
will provide US Airways with a sophisticated communications solution
designed to support the current and emerging technology needs of the
airline industry. The AT&T solution is focused on providing US Airways with
a reliable, secure and flexible network infrastructure designed to better
serve its customers.
  “This is an exciting time for both the new AT&T and new US Airways,”
said Joe Beery, US Airways’ senior vice president and chief information
officer. “We are committed to offering our customers and employees the best
tools and services available. AT&T has provided us with excellent solutions
in the past to meet this goal. With this exciting new technology in place,
we are poised to deliver outstanding service to our customers. We look
forward to a great continued relationship with AT&T.”
