DistribuTECH, the largest U.S. event covering the utility industry, promises to be a very exciting show this year. Two of the star attractions are sure to be the impact of Internet of Things (IoT) and new ideas on Smart Cities.

AT&T has been showcasing innovative products here for years—and this year’s show will be no exception. Taking center stage in the IoT news cycle is the AT&T and GE alliance, and their continued efforts to fuel innovation with smart energy solutions for the Industrial Internet of Things.

In the Smart Cities arena, intelligent lighting, water management, parking management, and public transport management solutions are other IoT areas that AT&T is working on, enabling cities to remotely monitor and control public assets.

AT&T and GE are combining their strengths in IoT, networks, utility solutions, and a shared vision for a more connected energy network.

GE is utilizing AT&T’s global network and jointly developed LTE-enabled device for their industrial solutions like smart meters. The combined Smart Meter solution can layer on other applications like pre-paid energy, and residential and commercial energy management solutions utilizing AT&T’s tools like M2X and Flow Designer.

In the Smart Cities arena, intelligent lighting, water management, parking management, and public transport management solutions are other IoT areas that AT&T is working on, enabling cities to remotely monitor and control public assets. With this capability, cities can save money, preserve natural resources, and build better relationships with their citizens.

2015 is starting off with a bang in the world of IoT!
