AT&T is to roll out a range of global ATM services starting with a US-Japanese link, available now. A service between the US and Canada will follow in September, while Europe, including the UK, will gain access in December.
The service will use permanent virtual connections to establish end-to-end connectivity. These eliminate the need for call set-ups each time the user needs to transmit data to remote locations.
AT&T will offer the service over a 155Mbits per second line, and plans to offer switched virtual circuits in the future. These provide customers with bandwidth on demand on a ?pay as you use? basis.
Further details of the European service will be made next week.
