AT&T Internet of Things

The right information can change the world

Our planet is close to 200 million square miles, and all of your vital assets are somewhere out there on it. See how your world can transform with solutions that connect your people, processes, and devices from virtually anywhere on earth using the Internet of Things.

Making the supply chain extraordinarily strong

What if your shipments could help with their own management? They can with AT&T Asset Management solutions. You'll know when temperatures are getting too high or the ride's a little bumpy (and more) — in near-real time, at almost every point in the supply chain journey.

Stay aware of changing conditions

If a shipment's getting too hot or too cold, you should know. Not to mention being able to keep up with a host of other variables. With custom alerts on temperature changes, vibration, and more, you can make the necessary adjustments.

“72° … just how I like it.”

Mitigate theft

Designated geofences can detect sudden changes in light or vibration, signifying possible damage or attempted theft and alerting you in near-real time.

“Unusual movement detected!”

Minimize down time

With automated recording of arrival times, you'll know how long containers have been sitting idle. Don't let them take up space on your lot. Put them back to work and increase revenue.

“Idle Time: 03:22:10”

Finding smarter ways to supply energy

With new technology comes new opportunities to save more energy. That's great for the community — and for business, which is why we're constantly looking for new solutions to help at every level, from power plants to residential homes.

Reduce and prevent outages

When transformers can report voltage levels and area usage, you can predict where maintenance is required and keep the neighborhood happy.

“The voltage I'm handling is higher than normal.”

Optimize energy supply and demand

Intelligent metering solutions allow utility companies and their customers to monitor energy use. By reducing consumption at peak times customers can lower their bills and suppliers can dynamically improve power utilization throughout the grid.

“We could better manage demand by discounting the off hours.”

Stay flexible and save on operating costs

With AT&T Smart Grid Prepaid Billing, customers with limited budgets or credit issues have the flexibility to pay as they go. It's a win-win, as it reduces your billing and customer-care costs.

“All good over here. I'm prepaid through the month.”

Revitalizing healthcare

When it comes to healthcare, nothing matters more than dependable and timely information. And that's precisely what our Internet of Things health team delivers with everything from connected hospitals to remote patient monitoring.

Help patients manage their own care

Elderly patients can extend their independence longer than usual thanks to the Internet of Things. Connected devices can remind them when it's time to take medication, track their wellness and fitness goals, and provide regular health updates to a monitoring physician.

“It's Tuesday. Take one pill in the morning and one at night.”

Improve ambulance dispatch

Thanks to integrated dispatch systems, emergency responders can assess a situation while en route to a destination. Meanwhile, the hospital can track the ambulance's location and receive a real-time data stream of the patient's vital signs, so ER workers can prepare for a successful operation.

“We've received the patient's data and are five minutes away.”

Monitor patients remotely

Things are becoming more convenient for patients and doctors. A simple, connected, mobile device can provide vital stats to doctors to help them track and adjust outpatient treatment. And patients can receive real-time feedback on their progress without the need for appointments.

“Ike's responding well to his new meds.”

Making the neighborhood a better place to live

Useful data can come from almost anywhere: Utilities, cars, trashcans, even lampposts. And when businesses use this information for residential solutions, everyone benefits.

Inspire consumer confidence

When machines can talk to other machines at every step in the supply chain, consumers don't have to perform guesswork anymore. You can let them know where your product was sourced, when it was shipped, when it arrived, and (if it has an expiration date) when it's due to expire.

“We were picked at the farm just yesterday.”

Track emerging trends with wearable tech

Wearable technology is poised to revolutionize a number of industries. Just a few examples: Health stats can be tracked in near-real time to help doctors fine-tune treatments. Law enforcement can predict where crowds may be forming and respond appropriately. Products can gather usage data and suggest improvements to their manufacturers.

“Five minutes at max heart rate. Time to rest.”

Improve traffic flow

Connectivity to an object can extend your five senses to almost any location. In the case of the smart lamppost, you'll have eyes and ears on the street at all times. So you'll know when traffic has been steadily increasing over time and can install necessary stoplights or adjust the timing of existing signals accordingly.

“Adding five seconds to this red light would improve traffic flow.”

Putting new infrastructure solutions on the map

A city's quality of life is directly related to its infrastructure. Our Smart Cities solutions were designed to improve infrastructure from nearly every angle, including utilities, traffic coordination, and even garbage collection.

Make sure utilities are running smoothly

Regular garbage pickup routes are becoming obsolete. With Bin-Level Monitoring, sensors can alert facilities when bins are full and ready for pickup. That means less traffic, less pollution, and less time waiting for pickup.

“We're running 33% higher than usual.”

Drive safer

What if cars “knew” where traffic jams were unfolding and could provide automatic reroutes? What if they tracked their own maintenance needs and scheduled service before mechanical issues developed? What if they learned a driver's musical preferences — just because? All of this is happening now as we perfect the connected car with a number of major auto manufacturers.

“I know a better route if you want to avoid traffic.”

Keep the city (and its air) clean

In good times, utilities are important. During unforeseen events such as inclement weather, they're critical. With AT&T Smart Grid, meters can monitor energy needs and usage, send automatic alerts on outages, and schedule preventative maintenance as necessary.

“Time for another pickup!”

Taking the construction industry to new heights

Why think of heavy equipment and machinery as a means to an end when it's capable of so much more? When it can track its own depreciation, find new ways to reduce costs, and more, your business can run that much better.

Predict when service is needed

Go beyond the service manual and warranty information: Let your machines tell you when they sense a repair might be needed in the future.

“My winding drum is slightly out of alignment.”

Manage safety and operating conditions

Construction is a serious business, and safety procedures are of paramount importance for the sake of the project and the crew. With onboard detection devices, everything can go according to the safety plan.

“Caution: Uneven surface detected.”

Keep ahead with long-term analysis data

The connected equipment you lease and sell can provide you with invaluable data on long-term customer usage patterns and equipment performance. That means you can predict the features and upgrades your customers might want in the future, which can make a huge difference in the marketplace.

“I could be more efficient with a bigger bucket.”

Harvesting rich information

Running a farm doesn't have to be such sweaty work. Not when things like soil testing, tracking performance, and submission of service tickets can be delegated to your machines and devices.

Optimize soil fertility

A simple M2X device can make checking soil easier than ever before. Once it's hooked up to your irrigation equipment it can collect and store key information, including: salinity, pH levels, organic content analysis, and more.

“Acre 9 needs a lime amendment.”

Remotely monitor performance

Soft costs like gas mileage, idle time, and depreciation add up over time. Fortunately, we have solutions to help you remotely monitor equipment and machinery performance. Now you can know where your tractor is, how much fuel it's using, how hot the engine's getting, and whether it's due for a break — no matter where you are.

“I'm at a steady five gallons per hour.”

Automate equipment servicing

Repairs are expected every once in a while. But with a connected machine, their costs can be easily reduced. When a problem occurs, it can immediately alert a service technician and help you find a substitute machine to finish whatever job it started.

“I've submitted a ticket to get my compressor bar fixed.”

Flying ahead of the competition

It takes more than a flight plan to succeed in the aviation industry. It takes a plan for everything else along the way — from tracking important shipments to keeping up with aircraft maintenance. And with AT&T, you'll know the best way to navigate these challenges day in, day out.

Track precious cargo, globally

Cargo View with FlightSafe® gives you peace of mind with sensitive shipments. The device records a broad range of sensor information including location, temperature, and shock at every step in the journey. Now you can respond quickly if your cargo is disrupted.

“The cargo temperature's steady, just like the flight. See you soon!”

Predict when maintenance will be required

As aircraft collect and analyze data, patterns may emerge. For instance, a minor flaw may be discovered in multiple aircraft. Addressing the issue across the fleet can help prevent flight delays and cancellations. And as a result, boost revenue.

“Fan blade vibration detected in three other jets.”
