Businesses Can Develop, Integrate, Manage, and Connect IoT Solutions to Be More Efficient, Competitive and Lower Costs

We’re making it easier for businesses to succeed with the Internet of Things (IoT).

Greater efficiencies, new revenue streams, lower operating costs and customer satisfaction are just a few reasons why businesses are interested in IoT.

To help businesses accelerate IoT solutions, we’re offering a suite of professional, managed, and consulting service at AT&T.[1] We’re making our network more accessible and helping developers more quickly prototype IoT solutions.

“This is a time when virtually anything can be connected to the Internet. Entirely new experiences and processes never thought possible are now achievable through the IoT. And they can transform entire industries,” said Chris Penrose, President, Internet of Things (IoT), AT&T. “Sharing our tools, expertise and speedy access to our network can help businesses of all sizes succeed with the IoT.”

IoT Professional Services

We provide a full suite of services to help businesses design, test, deploy, and manage IoT solutions. Our experts can help businesses of all sizes:

  • Speed innovation and mitigate risks. We help prioritize and develop strategies and proven architectural frameworks.
  • Design, develop and optimize a highly secure IoT architecture. One that holistically addresses network scale, performance and security.
  • Deploy and manage IoT initiatives with governance across the AT&T, customer and partner ecosystem.
  • Streamline device logistics with custom, integrated solutions.
  • Optimize efficiencies to improve business.

We offer a range of consulting services. These include IoT business and technology strategy planning, innovation assessment, development of an acceleration strategy, and a long term roadmap that defines architecture, timelines, budget requirements and execution plans.

We also offer consulting services that cover IoT security needs. These can apply to organizations involving infrastructure, threat management, data and application services while helping to maintain security and compliance.

Post deployment, we’ll be there. We’ll offer support through the entire lifecycle. This includes device and SIM management, billing support, customized reporting, assisted trouble-ticket resolution, staff training and more.

IoT Device Certification

We have more than 2,900 types of connected devices certified for our network. And more than 30 million connected devices as of the third quarter of 2016.

We’re reducing the time and cost for businesses to gain certification for new devices while preserving our network’s integrity.

IoT device integrators can now choose a streamlined way to complete AT&T device certification for new IoT devices:

  • Performing their own in-house on-network testing by following a simple on-line process; or
  • Have the testing performed by a lab participating in the AT&T Mobile Broadband Accelerator Program.

IoT device integrators were once required to submit devices to the AT&T Lab for on-network testing and verification. This could have taken a week or two. Our new IoT Device Certification shrinks that to a matter of days—or even hours. So developers and businesses can grow and scale quicker than ever.[2]

AT&T IoT Partner Program

While the IoT landscape is ripe with promise, it can be overwhelming to navigate. To help businesses of all sizes accelerate their IoT potential, we’ve developed the AT&T IoT Partner Program.

Members also receive access to our ecosystem of IoT professional resources and communities. They’ll see network-ready certification programs and developer solutions.
