FINANCIAL SERVICES INDUSTRY

Financial institutions are interested in technology that will improve their ability to manage customer traffic, run operations more smoothly, respond immediately, and increase cost effectiveness

Financial Services Industry in Transition

The Financial Services industry is undergoing a major transition. Developments in technology, economics, demographics, regulation, and even politics are all leading to a tumultuous period during the next five years. The marketplace dynamics fueling this transition include the rapid development of communications technology, and more specifically the Internet, along with consumers’ demand for “anytime, anywhere” access to their accounts. In addition, industry deregulation and consolidation are leading to a convergence of formerly separate banking, brokerage, and insurance institutions. The recent repeal of the Glass-Steagall Act paves the way for even more megamergers. The advent of the European Monetary Union and the successful launch of the Euro in January 1999 have created a formidable presence in the world economy.

In response to these market developments, many financial services firms are reviewing and revitalizing cost control strategies and business process re-engineering (BPR) projects. Concurrently, these institutions are undergoing major efforts to diversify product and service delivery channels such as the Internet, the call center, and automated teller machines. Customer preferences continue to shift regarding the type of financial service products that are desired, as well as how and where these products are purchased. Financial institutions increasingly look to the use of technology to grow revenues and reduce costs, as well as satisfy customers needs.

As the Internet proves its value to consumers and to businesses, electronic commerce is being integrated rapidly into all service delivery channels. Online banking and bill payment services will emerge as one of the Internet’s fastest-growing markets and will be the critical factor allowing banks to maintain their role as the dominant provider of financial services. Online lending is also poised to be delivered over the Internet and to become a major new source of revenue for savvy

GOVERNMENT

For more than 100 years, AT&T has been the trusted communications partner of governments throughout the Southeast, from the smallest municipalities to state capitals.

Nobody knows better than you how much government has changed in the last few years. While tax reductions and budget constraints have led to dramatic shifts in resources, service to the citizen has become even more critical. Now more than ever, it is vital for governments to find more effective and less costly ways to deliver services to constituents.

Governments cannot pick and choose where to provide service. Unlike the private sector, a key objective of local and state governments is to ensure the same quality of service to all constituents, regardless of location. Thus, education in rural areas must be equal to that of urban areas, access to healthcare in impoverished regions must be comparable to that of prosperous regions.

Citizens are demanding improved delivery of services from government. For example, they are not willing to wait in line for information, spend long periods of time on the telephone or go through any frustration when they need a service. New ways must be found to improve public service without increasing taxes. Governments are responding with Web-based services and call centers that provide more convenient citizen access to information and services

Economic development is another challenge. Increasingly, governments vie with each other to attract new companies to make the region prosper. A technologically advanced communications infrastructure, coupled with an understanding of advanced business processes and business applications, can be a determining factor in where relocating businesses choose to move.

With the increase in technology has come what many refer to as the “digital divide.” Some communities have access to a high propensity of PC users that are connected to the advantages of the Internet. Others languish behind due to economics or geography. Governments are increasingly aware of this new divider between the “haves” and the “have nots.” They are also searching for means to eliminate or at least reduce the gap between citizens that are connected to the Internet and those that are not connected.


How AT&T Can Help

For more than 100 years, AT&T has been the trusted communications partner of governments throughout the Southeast, from the smallest municipalities to state capitals. Because we live here, we personally experience all aspects of government from sanitation to crime protection to renewing a driver’s license. We understand your business needs.

Together, we can work to create public access and government e-commerce solutions so citizens and the private sector can have user-friendly access to information and services 24 hours a day, seven days a week.


Our Future Together as a Team

AT&T has been instrumental in many aspects of progressive development throughout the Southeast. The roots we have here are deep, substantial and ever growing. Groundbreaking endeavors such as state-wide information highways and video networks linking local and regional institutions are reflective of our commitment to the Southeast.

As the forces of change drive governments to new economic realities, information/communications technology becomes a valuable tool for improving productivity. AT&T will continue to assist in the process of “reengineering,” which will allow you to provide the highest possible level of service to citizens.

In short, AT&T Business is working to broaden the equality of service throughout the Southeast. It is an effort that will benefit us all.

HEALTHCARE

AT&T Business is ideally positioned to meet the industry’s unique needs, helping you care for your patients and run your hospital, clinic or office more efficiently and effectively.

The healthcare industry is undergoing profound and fundamental changes. Controlling costs without sacrificing quality of outcomes is a challenge for every provider. Healthcare represents one-seventh of the national economy. This fact underscores the importance of making choices that are efficient and beneficial to everyone involved.

Healthcare is facing one of the most challenging tasks of the new decade as they prepare to comply with the new regulations of the health Insurance Portability ACT (HIPAA). Healthcare organizations must begin adopting national standards for electronic transactions such as claims submission, eligibility, verification and referral authorization, as well as privacy and security regulations. The intent of HIPAA is to drive down operational costs and streamline how administrative and financial information about patients is shared by utilizing information technology.

As healthcare providers and payors prepare for this transformation, they are also evaluating strategic business and eHealth initiatives. Healthcare Internet commerce is expected to reach $370 billion by 2004, organized around a healthcare eBusiness network that serves consumers, providers, distribution chains and payors.

INTERNET SERVICE PROVIDERS

Predictions suggest ISPs will be focussing on higher margins and profitability in the upcoming year

Though the Internet has existed since the late 60’s in one form or another, it has only flourished as the hottest new form of communications in the past six years. This fledgling industry is not only the fastest growing telecommunications market in history, but also has spawned entire technologies and redefined the way companies operate. The days of a government and scholastic network have given way to a commercial information highway that spans the globe.

The Internet Service Providers are very aware of the fast pace of the Internet. They are being driven to serve faster, serve more and serve smarter. This means not only providing access through network build-out, but also outsourcing where it makes business sense to do so. AT&T is positioned to provide the latest access technologies that can help the ISPs maximize their customer reach and speed, while minimizing the capital costs and expenses.


The Contribution and Benefits of Doing Business with AT&T

The North American ISP markets are undergoing rapid change from simple narrow-band Internet access to a broadband-centric, integrated full service provider market. They look to AT&T to assist them to make this transition in the most profitable manner. AT&T does so, by focusing our efforts on enabling the ISPs to:

  • Increase reach to their customers
  • Compete in their ever-changing markets
  • Drive operations and cost efficiencies with a reliable network infrastructure

Increasing Speed and Reach for ISP customers

Both business and consumer Internet customers are demanding greater speed from their ISP. Business customers are running many mission-critical applications over the Internet and their data networks. Many of the business end-users (employees) are teleworking, not only requiring more speed, but also requiring access be provided over geographically dispersed areas. Consumers are also demanding fast and secure access for applications such as e-purchasing and electronic bill payment. These users are also located in various areas from large metropolitan areas to rural America. This demand for speed and reach, forces the Internet Service Provider to meet their customer demands or potentially lose them to the competition.


Giving ISPs the Competitive Edge

Predictions suggest ISPs will be focussing on higher margins and profitability in the upcoming year. To achieve such profits they will need to do more than just meet customer expectations for more speed and greater reach. They will need to deliver value-add services and premium customer service.

AT&T empowers ISPs to offer these “next generation solutions” by providing reliable network access and management, backed by service level agreements.


Driving operations and cost efficiencies with reliable network infrastructure solutions

As ISPs position themselves to supply the speed, reach and value-add services their customers’ demands, they must do so with their bottom lines in mind. AT&T provides the ISPs with a highly reliable network that they can bundle with their own value-add services and sell to their customers. As mentioned above, AT&T also has developed services to enable ISPs to gain operational and cost efficiencies.

PUBLIC SAFETY

With the latest technology from AT&T, however, today’s emergency call center operator can have a single computer desktop providing access to digital mapping, computer-aided dispatching (CAD), TDD (Telecommunications Device for the Deaf), and national and state crime databases

The evolution of the 9-1-1 system has revolutionized efficient delivery of emergency services to our nation’s communities. But 9-1-1 is much more than a telephone number providing access to a call center; it involves a complex array of telecommunications systems and sophisticated technologies. AT&T plays an integral role in the provision of network services and development of these enhanced systems.

For many years AT&T has provided a key-based phone system that comprises the backbone of most Southeastern PSAPs (Public Safety Answering Points). With the latest technology from AT&T , however, today’s emergency call center operator can have a single computer desktop providing access to digital mapping, computer-aided dispatching (CAD), TDD (Telecommunications Device for the Deaf), and national and state crime databases. We call this solution the Integrated Intelligent Workstation (IIWS).

Using IIWS, emergency call-taking personnel can improve response time and increase their efficiency. Budget conscious public officials appreciate the ability to provide more efficient service, while eliminating the cost of duplicate hardware. Even more, the new IIWS solution meets all challenges presented by the FCC’s Phase II compliance mandates for wireless calls. Even with these advances, AT&T basic 9-1-1 system continues to set the standard for counties who want to retain traditional phone-based service or do not have the need or public funding for Phase II compliance.


Among the products and services AT&T provides:

  • AT&T Enhanced 9-1-1 Integrated Intelligent Workstations
    • Network Services: Frame Relay
    • Network Services: Managed Router Services

E9-1-1 Integrated Intelligent Workstation

The AT&T E9-1-1 IIWS replaces multiple computer monitors, keyboards and space-consuming equipment with a single desktop. All vital applications function simultaneously. Among the advantages offered:

  • Full support of Phase I and II wireless requirements.
  • Compliance with NENA (National Emergency Number Association)-specified technical standards.
  • Flexible installation. The IIWS can be installed as a completely new system or integrated into existing configurations.
  • Equipment consolidations, reducing maintenance and power consumption costs, while increasing emergency call handling efficiency.
  • Sophisticated client/server technology. Equipment is based on the reliable Windows NT platform. Upgrades and enhancements are easily installed.
  • Modular Growth. A comprehensive array of standard and customer software modules enables your system to expand as your needs evolve.
  • Help when you need it. Questions about system operation or software applications are answered 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Applications

Computer-Aided Dispatch Saves Time and Lives

Computer-Aided Dispatch (CAD) provides multiple advantages to the 9-1-1 center. It ensures consistent communications between operators and callers, and provides more accurate, timely data to responding units. Managing the diverse information needed to process 9-1-1 calls has never been easier. The AT&T CAD module simultaneously displays multiple windows on a single monitor, providing comprehensive data accessibility and functionality when seconds count most.


Achieve Phase II Compliance through Digital Mapping

AT&T helps customers achieve Phase II compliance by pinpointing wireless callers’ locations. On October 1, 2001, PSAPs have the authority to require wireless carriers to deliver exact x, y coordinates to a 9-1-1 call center. The dynamic Geographical Information System (GIS) enables operators to display a caller’s exact location on a digital map. Besides achieving regulatory compliance, this tool improves emergency capabilities. With additional enhancements, the center can guide emergency responders through the fastest recommended route using real-time traffic and road hazard data.


Management Information System

Intelligent Management Information Systems enable administrators to evaluate whether PSAPs are operating at peak efficiency. Standard or customized reports are available to assess cumulative data or examine details related to a particular call. As an advanced support tool, this sophisticated application organizes data to generate reliable operational statistical analyses. In addition, with comparative reporting capabilities and the ability to merge call record databases, a powerful tool exists for research and investigation purposes.


Enhanced Applications

Once the basic IIWS system is in place, you can add functions as community needs expand. AT&T ?s enhanced applications include:


Law Enforcement Records Management

A comprehensive records management system enhances a community’s law enforcement operations. Our package of modules enables agencies to track arrests, cases, citations, incidents, crimes and intelligence gathering. The Windows-based system is user-friendly and ensures efficient data storage and retrieval. The ability to interface with our 9-1-1 products helps prepare and protect officers responding to emergency calls.


Fire Records Management

The Fire Records Management System provides quick access to vital text and graphic information and eliminates manual procedures. This system is designed for efficient management, tracking and administration of fire stations through online access to all data required by regulatory agencies. Fire departments save time, enhance public safety, promote consistency, streamline reporting and increase fire fighter safety.


The AT&T Advantage

AT&T is the only company in the Southeast that can provide the complete combination of equipment, applications and network services for enhanced 9-1-1 operations. We offer a single point of contact to quickly resolve network and equipment issues and your operation is constantly monitored by our technical center to ensure that you are able to provide uninterrupted service to your community. As an active participant in NENA, and an outstanding corporate citizen, we have a commitment to provide dependable solutions to your community.

RETAIL

To capture maximum market share, successful retailers must concentrate on operational efficiencies that allow them either to pass value on to their customers in the form of lower prices or provide excellent customer service


Enhancing Accessibility, Service Delivery and Efficiency for the Retail Industry

To capture maximum market share, successful retailers must concentrate on operational efficiencies that allow them either to pass value on to their customers in the form of lower prices or provide excellent customer service

Meanwhile, the Internet serves as an alternate channel, allowing retailers to extend their reach to new markets while interacting with trading partners more efficiently.


Retail Is Detail, Yet Retailers Need Speed

The leaders in today’s competitive retail environment are those who have invested in technologies that enable them to gather and use mission-critical information on inventory, sales and customers better and faster than their competitors. These retailers have been able to increase their profitability by collaborating with their vendors and trading partners to reduce inventories and speed inventory turnover. As a result, the amount of mission-critical data traveling among retail headquarters, stores, vendors and distribution centers has increased dramatically over the past few years increasing retailers’ bandwidth needs.

Top retailers are adopting Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP); Collaborative Planning, Forecasting and Replenishment (CPFR); Time and Attendance, Labor Scheduling and supply chain management applications, all of which require real-time data. Even frequent shopper and gift registry programs must be updated with every transaction. In order for these applications to perform well, retailers often find that they need greater bandwidth.


How AT&T Can Help

To remain competitive, retailers can no longer rely on nightly store polling for the collection and distribution of data; they must have real-time data. Video also consumes large amounts of bandwidth. Yet retailers cannot afford to have new bandwidth-intensive applications reduce their ability to quickly move customers through checkout because they do not have enough bandwidth remaining to process credit card authorizations.

That’s why so many retailers are migrating from low-data-rate VSAT or satellite to the additional bandwidth and maximum reliability of high-speed data networks from AT&T . We can provide you with Frame Relay with speeds from 56 Kbps to 44 Mbps as well as ATM (Asynchronous Transfer Mode) for voice, video and data at speeds above DS3. ATM may also be used to connect to a retailer at 1.536 Mbps or by using Inverse Multiplexing over ATM (IMA) from 3.072 Mbps to 12.288 Mbps.


AT&T Keeps You in Business

When most people think of crises, they think of natural disasters. However, 68 percent of all business disruptions are caused by human error – whether it’s a backhoe that cuts a telephone line or coffee spilled on a server that brings business to a screeching halt. Because no retailer can afford for their network to be down, AT&T offers a complete suite of business continuity products for end-to-end reliability.

AT&T Frame Relay Secure is an “insurance policy” for your Frame Relay network. If the network goes down, your mission-critical data automatically switches to ISDN in less than two minutes. Back-up Frame Relay protects the rest of your data by correlating PVCs in your Frame Relay network to reroute traffic from all remote sites to a backup central processing computer at an alternative host site. Also, our Frame Relay Intelligent PVCs facilitate 100% uptime. If a central processing computer goes down, a router dies or a telephone pole falls in a storm, data traffic is rerouted within 15 minutes following a call to the AT&T Repair Center.


Clicks and Mortar

Traditional retailers’ strong brand names give them an advantage online. Their physical presence also gives them a customer service advantage – it’s easier to return a book to a store than mail it back to a pure play’s distribution center. On the other hand, pure plays can be open for business 24×7 and, with just a few simple keystrokes, re-merchandise their storefront or change prices in a matter of minutes.

These multiple-channel retailers know that, to be competitive, retailers must be accessible when and where customers want to shop – even if it’s 3 a.m.AT&T can provide you with everything you need to set up shop on the Internet, from access to dedicated and shared Web hosting and co-location service in AT&T world-class centers.


Managed Services

As mergers and acquisitions continue, retailers find it cost-effective take a consistent approach to operations from store to store. This often requires integrating and updating both your telecommunications network and equipment. However, many retailers do not have the human resources necessary to handle this integration smoothly in-house. With the scarcity of IT professionals, retailers have found it difficult to attract and retain qualified IT personnel. The last thing you want is to have to replace your network every two years. Our experts can help you determine your network requirements now and in the future. Many retailers have decided to out-task network management with AT&T Managed Router Service, giving them access to scarce resources, reduced total cost of ownership and guaranteed performance.

AT&T also provides Managed Security Services including Managed Firewall, Intrusion Detection and Response, Anti-Virus/Anti-Vandal Filtering and Web site Blocking. With AT&T managing your network, you’re free to concentrate on merchandising so that you can offer your customers a shopping experience that will keep them coming back. Retail executives rely on voice and video conferencing services and equipment from AT&T to save on employees’ time and travel expenses. For maximum accessibility, equip your traveling employees with a AT&T prepaid card and AT&T Interactive Pagers. With the interactive paging, employees can send and retrieve e-mail from their pagers, transmit text-to-voice messages and receive voice-to-text nationwide.

ALWAYS ON/DYNAMIC ISDN (AODI)

Always On/Dynamic ISDN (AODI) from AT&T Business provides continuous low-cost network connectivity

Always On/Dynamic ISDN (AODI) from AT&T Business provides continuous low-cost network connectivity. This connectivity helps teleworkers avoid problems associated with repeatedly opening connections to a corporate network, including:

  • Downtime while connections are established
  • Inconvenience and interruptions to workflow
  • Possible failure to retrieve e-mail
  • Potential loss of sales or goodwill

ISDN (Integrated Services Digital Network) combines two circuit-switched B channels that can be combined to provide uncompressed data speeds of up to 128 Kbps and a packet-switched D channel (available with an ISDN Basic Rate Interface or BRI line). The D channel is the key to to the low-cost continuous connectivity offered by AODI. This service offers:

  • Security
  • Speed
  • Digital clarity
  • Flexibility
  • Expanded business voice services

AODI automatically switches network traffic to the channel that best supports it. The D-channel link, which is used whenever B channels are not required, provides a low-cost, continuous LAN-style connection for teleworkers, while employers don’t have to sacrifice valuable circuit-switched ports on their networks to keep users continuously connected. When traffic increases one or both B channels are used for:

  • Retrieving e-mail attachments
  • Accessing the Internet
  • Downloading files
  • Other high-bandwidth tasks

Features

  • No dialing in to the network
  • Reserves the D channel to send and receive e-mail
  • Low-cost continuous LAN-style connection leaves B channels free for other calls.

Long Distance Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM) Service

AT&T Long Distance Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM) Service is a high-speed switching technique that uses cells to integrate traffic over a single facility

AT&T Long Distance Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM) Service is a high-speed switching technique that uses cells to integrate traffic over a single facility. ATM is a powerful networking technology that supports a wide range of service levels enabling customers to prioritize voice, video, data, and image traffic.AT&T Long Distance ATM Service ensures the most critical traffic gets the greatest resources and the best service. Additionally, ATM runs over a closed network for the security and privacy of the customer’s traffic. Because it has a fixed packet size and is connection-oriented, it has very low latency, so all traffic moves quickly and efficiently over the network.


Features

  • Dedicated Access Up to 2.4Gbps – AT&T Long Distance ATM Service is accessed through a dedicated local connection from your site to the long distance ATM network. ATM network access ports support speeds up to 622 Mbps (OC-12).
  • Permanent Virtual Circuit (PVC) -A PVC is a permanent logical pathway between two access ports on the ATM network. You can order PVC bandwidth in 8 kbps increments up to 45 Mbps, and PVCs are billed at a flat monthly fee.
  • Quality of Service (QoS): A set of defined performance parameters that govern the traffic over a virtual connection on an end-to-end basis. These parameters specify values for peak bandwidth, average sustained bandwidth, and burst size. The ATM Switch has the ability to “enforce” QoS parameters and regulate traffic. Every PVC configured must have a QoS setting assigned. BSLD supports five QoS levels:
    • Available Bit Rate (ABR): moderate latency, high delivery
    • Committed Bit Rate (CBR): static delivery, lowest latency
    • Unspecified Bit Rate (UBR): lowest queuing, basic delivery standards
    • Variable Bit Rate non-real time (VBRnrt): standard queuing, nominal traffic loss and delay
    • Variable Bit Rate real-time (VBRrt): highest queuing, liberal discard, low latency
  • Virtual Path/Virtual Channel (VP/VC): two-layered hierarchical addressing scheme for ATM PVCs. A virtual path is the highest order logical address and refers to a given group of channels on a link. A virtual channel is the lowest order logical address in ATM. It refers to a specific circuit on an ATM link.
  • Frame to ATM Internetworking: a feature that allows a Frame Relay PVC to be mapped to an ATM PVC. The Frame Relay packets are encapsulated and changed into cells; then the data is transmitted across the ATM Network to the designated ATM end

Benefits

  • ATM network transfers data faster than either Frame Relay or IP
  • You get the security and privacy of a closed network, and the highest data integrity and lowest latency of any network technology
  • ATM also lets you prioritize traffic so that the most critical items get the greatest resources and the best service
  • AT&T Long Distance ATM Service, there’s no additional charge for frame relay to ATM interworking
  • AT&T Service Level Agreements can assure you of ATM performance, availability and problem resolution that build confidence into your business processes.
  • Your entire solution is presented on a single contract, with a single service contact, and provided on a single bill.
  • The AT&T Long Distance Customer Resource Center takes trouble reports 24 x 7 x 365, and you get prompt resolution with clearly defined incident priority levels, status reporting and escalation guidelines.

Long Distance Frame Relay Service

If you’re transmitting large, unpredictable volumes of data among multiple locations, Frame Relay services can deliver affordable, flexible solutions

If you’re transmitting large, unpredictable volumes of data among multiple locations, Frame Relay services can deliver affordable, flexible solutions.

Features

  • Class of Service (CoS) – A set of service parameters that govern the prioritization of traffic in the network. Each PVC translated must have a CoS setting assigned. BSLD supports three CoS levels:
    • Variable Frame Rate-real time (VFRrt) – highest queuing, lowest latency
    • Variable Frame Rate-non real time (VFRnrt) – standard delivery, minimal loss and delay
    • Unspecified Frame Relay (UFR) – basic service, lowest queuing
  • Back-Up Ports – a standby connection (Port and PSL), which is pre-configured to take over the Host’s traffic in the event the Primary Host suffers a failure. A Back-Up Port can support several Hosts, but only one at a time. In addition to the Back-Up Port and PSL charges, there is also a Back-up Enablement charge billed to each Primary Host for the “grooming” that is required so it’s PVCs can be switched to the Back-Up Port.
  • Back-Up PVCs – secondary PVCs placed on a Remote which are mapped to a different Host. The Back-Up PVC is used to transmit data if the PVC to the Primary Host suffers a failure

Meeting Number & PIN Security

Each account owner is issued his/her own meeting number and host PIN. Participants must enter the Meeting Number/Pass Code after dialing in and will be placed on music hold until the host arrives. The host must enter both the Meeting Number/Pass Code and their PIN in order to activate the conference call. The host can also require participants to enter a participant PIN before being joined to the conference. This is accomplished in one of two ways:

  • The host may call the AT&T helpdesk and request that a participant PIN be added to their account. This PIN will remain unchanged and continue to be required until the host calls the helpdesk and requests/provides a new PIN or asks to have the participant PIN deactivated.
  • The host, through the online interface, logs in to their meeting room and adds, changes or deactivates participant PINs at will.

When a conference is “Locked” the Waiting/Greeting Room is automatically activated and the conference host will be signaled by a series of three “beeps” letting him or her know that someone is waiting to join the conference call.


Participant Waiting/Greeting Room

When activated by the host, all participants dialing in to the conference are placed on music hold. The host, through simple touch-tone commands then has the option to join participants one-by-one or all at once to the conference call.


Dial-out

The host can easily dial-out to as many participants as they require, adding them to the conference or placing them in the Waiting/Greeting Room as they are contacted. For added convenience, the audio system will remember the last number dialed so you can quickly redial if a busy signal is encountered.
