By June 12, 2018 No Comments

The June 8th Telarus Tuesday call brought IoT and mobility applications sales, Robert Ayres to talk about AT&T’s IoT offering. The entire recording can be found here. 

It Starts with a Global SIM 

The Internet of Things allows objects to be sensed and controlled remotely across existing network infrastructure, creating opportunities for more direct integration between the physical world and computer-based systems, and resulting in improved efficiency, accuracy and economic benefit. AT&T Global SIM enables ordering and provisioning in multiple countries through a single flexible platform that can dynamically adapt to a changing business environment. Provisioning hundreds or thousands of devices worldwide for the Internet of Things (IoT) and machine-to-machine is a complicated task. AT&T Global SIM connectivity helps make that easy. In a single solution, you gain: 

  • Reliable global network connectivity, based on the global GSM standard for high-speed wireless delivery and global roaming into 200+ countries and territories.  
  • Single global SIM for provisioning worldwide.  
  • Standard interface for deploying and connecting mobile assets in more than 200 countries.  
  • Easy, cost-effective connected device management with integrated SIM provisioning, billing and reporting tools.  
  • Ease of expansion and scaling.  
  • Relationship with a single global carrier with connectivity to over 500 carrier networks.  
  • Access to experts in network connectivity, mobile applications, device certifications, and enterprise technical support.  

IoT Connectivity: LTE-M  

Outside the global SIM, a key differentiator for AT&T is their LTE.  IoT wireless networks are evolving to help meet the needs of a wide variety of connected devices and services. When making decisions on IoT system architectures, you want coverage, long battery life, and lower costs. You also need a reliable, scalable network that offers nationwide coverage and carrier-grade security. Now, with LTE-M, you can get the highly secure benefits of cellular service with optimized features designed specifically for IoT industries and applications. LTE-M is a Low-Power Wide-Area (LPWA) technology deployed by AT&T to support today’s IoT devices, even in the most challenging environments.
