AT&T has made a bullish start to the second quarter by winning a number of deals and rebookings for its managed services offerings.
The company has won a $21m (£11m) integrated networking contract with ServiceMaster, a $3m renewal from plastics and packing firm Menasha, and a $1.4m hosting and management contract with electronics company Xilinx.
AT&T will supply ServiceMaster with an IP Virtual Private Network to provide efficient and cost-effective communications with the company's network of more than 5,400 service centres and business units, as well as with business partners and suppliers.
ServiceMaster is the US’s largest provider of residential and commercial outsourcing services. The three-year deal renews and expands a longstanding relationship between the two companies.
Under the networking contract renewal with Menasha, AT&T will continue to provide the IP-enabled technology that manages Menasha’s corporate network, integrating more than 46 facilities. AT&T will also provide remotely deployed workers with secure access to the corporate network and continue to host Menasha’s internet proxy server.
The deal with programmable logic devices manufacturer Xilinx is to host and manage the company’s website. The AT&T hosting solution aims to speed up website page loads and enhance flexibility and security.
