Imagine this.

You've just woken up. Your home knows to flick on the lights, adjust the thermostat and start the coffee machine.

Then, you leave the house. Your connected smartphone and car communicate with the city, because it's a Smart City. You're routed around an accident and get to work faster.

Precision King, a provider of smart farming solutions uses AT&T* Internet of Things (IoT) services to help take the guess work out of farming.

Three essentials in agriculture are sun, temperature and water. Precision King’s Soil King solution lets farmers monitor the one key factor they have control over – water irrigation.

AT&T’s Global SIM card and IoT Services, such as Control Center, let the Soil King collect data from the soil and transmit it to the Precision King console. Farmers receive alerts when it's time to irrigate. Not over-watering saves fuel and equipment costs, and preserves an important natural resource.

We spend a lot of time talking about the technology that enables the future, the software and network devices and sensors. It’s important, though, to remember the people behind it.

They create the technology that defines how we live, work and play.

Today, we’re honoring 4 of the innovators who helped create and commercialize that technology: Ralph de la Vega, Joel S. Engel, Richard H. Frenkiel and Philip T. Porter.

These 4 AT&T employees and alumni are giants in their field. Last night, they became part of the Wireless History Foundation’s (WHF)Hall of Fame. It’s a huge honor and they deserve every bit of it.
