COPENHAGEN -- 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 “go-to-market agreement” the two companies will jointly develop and deploy solutions and bundled service offers for companies operating in the Nordics region by combining TDC’s portfolio, resources and coverage with AT&T’s 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&T’s global customers – which include all of the Fortune 1000 companies - will benefit from enhanced access to TDC’s 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&T’s world-class IP network infrastructure and services through an agreement with AT&T's 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.

“It is a win-win situation for TDC and AT&T. Our two companies can benefit from combining TDC’s portfolio, resources and coverage in the Nordic region and AT&T’s premier services and global, highly-secure networking platform,” said Jens Munch-Hansen, Senior Executive VP in TDC Business Nordic.
