AT&T to Provide Paltalk with Broader Data Hosting Services
AT&T Inc. (NYSE:T) today announced an extended and expanded contract with Paltalk, a leading real-time, video-based online community. Under the new contract, AT&T will provide expanded enterprise hosting and voice services to support the company’s subscriber base and interactive capabilities. AT&T and Paltalk are continuing a strong relationship that has spanned more than seven years.
AT&T Enterprise Hosting Services will provide uninterrupted access and increased bandwidth to deliver an unmatched user experience — among interactive chat, video and audio applications — on Paltalk’s online community. Given the global presence that Paltalk has established, the company has realized an increased need to have AT&T support larger volumes of data that come with users accessing Paltalk’s feature-rich online community from around the world.
AT&T will host Paltalk’s applications in local Internet data centers (IDCs), which are protected from intrusion and failure by multilayered security, fail-safe redundancy, diversity measures and rapid response recovery measures. By using AT&T’s IDCs, Paltalk will benefit from an optimal hosting environment for all Web and data applications while also having the ability to control and manage applications independently.
“By expanding our relationship with AT&T, we can continue to offer a uniquely interactive community experience to our users around the world through voice, video and text chat applications,” said Joel Smernoff, president and chief operating officer of Paltalk. “Our working relationship with AT&T has spanned many years, and it has supported us through each evolution of our business during that time. Our users are so engaged on Paltalk 24/7 that the volumes of data keep increasing, making increased bandwidth a priority. Being able to use AT&T’s global infrastructure gives us peace of mind as we continue to deliver more functionality to our users around the world.”
