AT&T has adopted a ‘three-screen’ integration strategy to deliver services across mobile devices, PCs and televisions. It has also expanded video offerings to include next-generation television services – AT&T’s newest application on the iPhone enables subscribers to watch free, selected TV shows on their handsets.
This year AT&T delivered new mobile payment applications, turning smart phones into point-of-sale devices, to enhance productivity and cash flow as well as minimise back office processes.
In the Asia Pacific, there will be a continued focus on business application services. These cover LAN management, WAN acceleration, unified communications including telepresence and Sypnaptic hosting, which is an application hosting service that provides pay-as-you-go access to virtual servers and storage with security and networking functions.
