AT&T announced its agreement with Bharti Airtel to expand presence with enterprises including MNCs in India.
The Network-to-Network Interconnect (NNI) agreement enables AT&T’s enterprise customers to access more than 100 cities across India via Bharti Airtel’s more than 130 Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS)-enabled IP Network nodes.
