AT&T to power wireless network at Cliffs Natural Resources

AT&T Business Solutions has announced a three-year agreement with mining and natural resources company Cliffs Natural Resources to enhance its global network and provide enterprise mobility through wireless services.

Under the terms of the contract, AT&T will establish a virtual private network (VPN) to support numerous data and voice applications among 20 locations worldwide.

By enhancing efficiency and reliability, this network provides cost efficiencies and positions Cliffs for the future use of advanced technology applications, such as video and conferencing.

AT&T Business Solutions is also keeping Cliffs employees connected in the office and off-site with wireless service and handsets. These employees will experience the ease and flexibility of being connected on a global wireless network, giving them immediate access to each other and corporate resources.

John Kory, director of IT operations and infrastructure for Cliffs Natural Resources, said: Cliffs Natural Resources, much like AT&T, has a long history and dynamic future because of our commitment to leveraging leading technology to improve operations and customer experience. AT&T is keeping us connected and positioning our business for greater momentum moving forward.
