AT&T Targets International Service Providers with Platform for Remote Monitoring and Automation
Dallas, Texas, February 23, 2012
Conserving energy, checking on the welfare of loved ones, or maximizing home security can be as easy as pressing a key on your smartphone or tapping the screen of your tablet. AT&T has designed a new platform to offer these types of connections to service providers around the globe.
AT&T* today announced its plans to launch AT&T Digital LifeTM, an IP-based remote monitoring and automation platform to equip global service providers with the capabilities to offer their subscribers customizable, web-based home automation, energy and security services. The platform, a complete end-to-end solution, will enable providers to offer their consumers devices like wireless sensors and cameras that will communicate with a control center inside the home, managed through a web based user interface. Digital Life features licensed software development kits, and other services like hardware certification, application hosting, and technical and integration support.
“We’ve built a robust platform that equips international service providers with the foundation needed to build a digital life solution for their customers,” said Kevin Petersen, senior vice president, Digital Life, AT&T Mobility. “The platform is flexible, intuitive and scalable, providing service providers with a path into a market of significant growth opportunity. With Digital Life, service providers will have the ability to arm their subscribers with technology to stay connected to what matters most to them in a simple, convenient, secure, and customizable way.”
AT&T Digital Life offers several benefits to international service providers, including lower entry costs into a market that can potentially generate new revenue streams and reduce churn.
The platform offers a customizable experience that enables service providers to develop a unique graphic user interface and extend branding to devices. Service providers will have the opportunity to tailor solutions for multiple segments – consumer, small business and healthcare - based on their specific needs.
The AT&T platform is expected to be available to international service providers later this year. It has been designed for multi-country use and can be self-installed in the home or office.
AT&T will demonstrate the Digital Life platform capabilities from February 27 through March 1 at the GSMA Connected House at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain.
