AT&T’s Global Enterprise Business Positioned By Analyst Firm in Leaders Quadrant for Global Network Service Providers
San Antonio, Texas.-London — AT&T Inc. (NYSE:T) announced today that leading industry analyst firm Gartner Inc. has positioned AT&T in the Leaders Quadrant of the 2007 “Magic Quadrant for Global Network Service Providers, 2007.”1
Commenting on this latest report from Gartner, Ron Spears, group president — Global Business Services, AT&T, said “We believe the Gartner placement in the Magic Quadrant reflects the continued investment and commitment that AT&T has made in supporting its global enterprise business, and demonstrates that we are meeting the needs of our business customers by providing them with an exceptional product portfolio, unprecedented network reach, and a consistent service and sales experience, wherever they operate in the world.”
To be positioned in the Leaders Quadrant in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant report, network service providers had to have a full portfolio of voice and data products, coupled with above-average service and support, wide global coverage, and competitive pricing. In addition, providers must have a strong vision that includes adopting more information and communication technology (ICT) capabilities, which they articulate clearly and openly.
Gartner studied companies with at least $200 million in direct global enterprise network service revenue (excluding domestic business and wholesale) that offered voice, data and managed network services to customers across multiple geographies. This included network service providers that deliver services and have points of presence in the top 25 global markets in North America, Western Europe and Asia Pacific. The rankings were based on vendor survey responses, vendor interviews, multiple global enterprise customer interviews, and direct Gartner customer feedback.
