AT&T and TDC Build Alliance to Deliver Comprehensive íLocal To Globalí Services in Nordics


Agreement Delivers Greater Global Connectivity to Nordic Business and Enhances AT&Tís Local Teach in Key Growth Region

Copenhagen, Denmark.- AT&T* and TDC today announced an agreement to jointly develop and deploy global service bundles and networking solutions for multinational companies, either headquartered or doing business in the Nordics, a region considered to be among the most technologically advanced and competitive in the world.

Under terms of the ďgo-to-market agreementĒ the two companies will jointly develop and deploy solutions and bundled service offers for companies operating in the Nordics region by combining TDCís portfolio, resources and coverage with AT&Tís complementary portfolio of services and intelligent, highly-secure global networking platform. This will allow both companies to develop cost effective joint solutions for customers that neither company could offer alone.

TDC is the leading provider of communications solutions in Denmark and a strong player in the Nordic business market. AT&Tís global customers Ė which include all of the Fortune 1000 companies - will benefit from enhanced access to TDCís extensive network resources in Denmark, Sweden, Norway and Finland, enabling AT&T to better meet their networking requirements for Internet Protocol (IP) based services in these local markets.

TDC will offer its locally-based customers with multiple global locations, more service offerings and better access to worldwide markets via AT&Tís world-class IP network infrastructure and services through an agreement with AT&Tís global wholesale organization.

AT&T will also use its expanded agreement with IBM to develop and deploy solutions to companies in the Nordics. TDC will play a key role in helping AT&T to transition network management services for these customers to the new arrangement with AT&T.

ďIt is a win-win situation for TDC and AT&T. Our two companies can benefit from combining TDCís portfolio, resources and coverage in the Nordic region and AT&Tís premier services and global, highly-secure networking platform,Ē said Jens Munch-Hansen, Senior Executive VP in TDC Business Nordic.

Carsten Dilling, Senior Executive VP in TDC Operations, with responsibility for TDCís wholesale department, said ĒThe deal enhances TDCís ability to serve customers in the Nordic telecom market and TDC, working with AT&T, looks forward to bringing global coverage and service to more companies through the agreement.Ē

ďI am delighted to be able to combine the capabilities and reach of AT&Tís global networking resources with the breadth and depth of TDCís comprehensive local footprint in the Nordics, where some of the most demanding, sophisticated companies resideĒ said Steve Sobolevitch vice president, Strategy & Business Development, AT&T Business Solutions. ďItís a winning combination of expertise for companies whose needs are global, but require local presence in this dynamic region.Ē

AT&T will continue to maintain a direct relationship with its multinational customers headquartered in the Nordics, as well as with AT&T customers from other regions who need service and connectivity in the region.
