Managed M2M Services, Worldwide

    AT&T named a Leader in 2018 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Managed M2M Services, Worldwide.

We were named a Leader for our ability to execute and completeness of vison. As defined by Gartner, "managed machine-to-machine (M2M) services enable businesses to collect, analyze and interact with data streams, thus providing businesses with the ability to monitor, manage and control (manually and through automation) assets associated with business processes. Managed M2M services may encompass integrated and managed IT infrastructure and systems, OT infrastructure and systems, software, network services (connectivity), and IT services."



In this report, Gartner separates M2M services into 7 solutions elements

  • Sourcing and Logistics Management
  • Service Management
  • Device, SIM, and System Management
  • Application Management
  • Security Management
  • Reporting and Analytics
  • Multisourcing Service Integration

Why ability to 'execute' matters in IoT

While we have had the honor of being named a 'Leader' by Gartner before, in the 2018 report, AT&T moved up on the quadrant in our ability to execute. We believe the significance of that improvement is vital to IoT. There are many vendors, but proofs-of-concept often stay on the ground. The IoT ecosystem we have developed helps customers with a full suite of modular solutions, with best-in-class alliances and collaborations in a one-stop IoT development shop.

Our value-added solutions are based on strong platforms that simplify multiple aspects of M2M and IoT solutions and enable our customers to scale when they need to. For example, AT&T Multi-Network Connect aggregates third-party data feeds from partner networks and systems for a single view of M2M inventory management.

Also, the AT&T IoT platform offers a range of capabilities including storage and data management, an open-source application development and management environment, and pre-integrated data connectors to data analytics services.

Network Services, Global

AT&T named a Leader in 2018 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Network Services, Global for the 14th consecutive time.

In this Magic Quadrant, Gartner evaluated global enterprise network service providers’ ability to execute and completeness of vision. Gartner defines the network service global market as the delivery of fixed corporate networking services with worldwide coverage.



Services evaluated include established global network services and emerging global network service categories

  • WAN services
  • Cloud connectivity
  • SIP trunking
  • SD-WAN services
  • Network on-demand services
  • NFV services
  • Virtual CPE

What's changed?

In the past 12 months, Gartner has seen accelerated change in enterprise requirements and buying criteria for global networks. Enterprises are increasingly focusing on agility, their adoption of cloud services and greater use of the internet as primary WAN transport.

Enterprises are piloting and deploying new services such as managed SD-WAN, network on-demand services, NFV and vCPE to improve the agility of their WANs. As a result, the inclusion and evaluation criteria for this year's Magic Quadrant, although similar to the prior year's research, has been adjusted to reflect these trends.
