Multi-Network Connect Will Help Businesses Streamline Internet of Things Operations Worldwide

AT&T* is rolling out a new cloud-based platform for businesses to manage Internet of Things (IoT) devices across multiple cellular and satellite networks, operators and regions.

Multi-Network Connect lets you manage devices over multiple access technologies like 2G1, 3G, 4G LTE, Low-Power Wide Area (LPWA) and satellite. Businesses can configure the platform to work across various operator networks.

Multi-Network Connect supports the Globecomm Satellite IoT Platform and we expect future enhancements to enable support for the Bridge Alliance Shared IoT Platform.

“Businesses are constantly deploying millions of connected devices around the world. Everything from asset trackers and connected vehicles to smart cities and industrial equipment,” said Chris Penrose, president, Internet of Things Solutions, AT&T. “These customers come to us for help in managing their diverse portfolios. We built Multi-Network Connect to meet this need with one interface to manage all IoT endpoints through a single pane of glass.”

Multi-Network Connect:

  • Saves time and operational costs by managing all IoT connected endpoints from a single portal with one log-in and password.
  • Generates end-point reports from all supported platforms and puts them on one screen.
  • Speeds time-to-market for customer business applications and lowers development cost through access to data from all supported platforms.

The launch of Multi-Network Connect represents another step forward for our suite of IoT platform services. This includes service and connectivity management, as well as data and application management platforms.

In a recent IDC MarketScape report2, AT&T was named a leader among global IoT platform providers. “Customers cited a superior management portal, reliability of connectivity service, and an executive/partner team that is committed to their success as the top reasons why they chose to work with AT&T,” the report stated.

AT&T Multi-Network Connect is currently in beta. Commercial deployment is expected in 2018. We’ll showcase our IoT platforms this week in our booth (No. 4D30) at Mobile World Congress 2018. For more details go to att.com/iotplatform.

Check out our booth at MWC to see how AT&T is bringing everything together edge-to-edge – from end points to connectivity to the cloud – wrapped in security.
