SINGAPORE--AT&T Thailand today announced an agreement between the Communications Authority of Thailand (CAT) and AT&T Singapore, under which AT&T Thailand can now offer frame relay services to companies in the country.

Frame relay is a high-speed communications technology used in networks to connect data and voice applications. It is a way of sending information over a wide area network (WAN) that divides the information into frames or packets.

The new service offered--called AT&T Managed Data Network Services (MDNS)--will boost the networking solutions portfolio of AT&T Thailand. AT&T has extended the service to the country "in response to growing data communications demand from multinational corporations and enterprises in Thailand", according to a company statement.

AT&T MDNS provides Virtual Private Network (VPN) solutions with flexible security options to meet different companies' needs. Customers are promised instant global reach through AT&T's vast network--with over 2,000 points of presence in 850 cities across 59 countries.

"By strengthening our relationship with AT&T...we aim to expand the network infrastructure in Thailand, offering businesses here a wider choice of world-class data networking services," said Sompol Chanprasert, vice president of Data Telecommunication Services Division at CAT.
