AT&T invested more than $6.55 billion in its Texas wireless and wireline networks from 2011 through 2013. AT&T has proudly served Texas for 134 years and employs more than 35,500 people across the state.

The AT&T GigaPower network launched in Austin, Texas, in December 2013, and high demand exceeded expectations.  As a result AT&T announced a major initiative in April to expand its ultra-fast AT&T GigaPower fiber network to up to 100 cities and municipalities across 25 markets nationwide.  Today's announcement means U-verse with AT&T GigaPower is now available to tens of thousands of customers across the Austin, Dallas and Fort Worth markets.  So far, AT&T has committed to deliver the AT&T GigaPower network to Charlotte, Greensboro, Houston, Miami, Nashville, Overland Park, Kan., Raleigh-Durham, San Antonio and Winston-Salem. 

Additionally, AT&T committed that upon approval of its proposed acquisition of DIRECTV, the company will expand the AT&T GigaPower network to an additional 2 million customer locations. All of these 2 million locations are over and above what the company announced in April.

When growing capacity and power in the data center, the architectural trade-offs between server scale-up vs. scale-out continue to be debated. Both approaches are valid: scale-out adds multiple, smaller servers running in a distributed computing model, while scale-up adds fewer, more powerful servers that are capable of running larger workloads. It’s worth noting that there are additional, unique advantages that scale-up architectures offer. One big advantage is large memory and compute capacity...
