ATLANTA, GA - Commitment to excellence over the past year has earned Scientific Atlanta, a Cisco company, recognition as an outstanding supplier to AT&T Inc. (NYSE: T), one of the world’s leading data, voice, wireless and Internet services providers.

“We are proud of our long-standing tradition of providing unparalleled products and services to our business and residential customers,” said Maureen Merkle, President, AT&T Procurement. “We’re successful on that front in large part thanks to supplier partners like Scientific Atlanta that consistently go above and beyond the call of duty.”

Scientific Atlanta received one of 49 supplier recognition awards for its work in helping AT&T deliver outstanding service to its customers during the past year. Scientific Atlanta was recognized for its contributions in the Teamwork category.

“Scientific Atlanta is honored to be working with AT&T to enable the delivery of Internet Protocol-based AT&T U-versesm services, including video to the home,” said Jim McDonald, CEO, Scientific Atlanta. “The state-of-the-art IP video super hub offices and IP video hubs we are building will provide AT&T with the performance needed to support services on one of the world’s most advanced IP video networks. And receiving this award for teamwork is even a greater honor and confirms our core belief that our people are the best in the industry.”
