Dallas, Sept. 12, 2017: AT&T has announced an Internet of Things (IoT) solution called AT&T Asset Management – Operations Center for quick deployment of asset monitoring and management solutions in the Cloud.
The solution, said the company in a press release, will run on the Microsoft Azure Cloud platform, and will use several Microsoft enterprise components, such as Azure Cosmos DB and Microsoft Power BI, to give business customers a more streamlined way to track, monitor and manage their deployed IoT assets.
Operations Center is designed for the future, claimed AT&T. It’s easy to add new devices, mix modes and support multiple asset monitoring use cases—today and tomorrow. It also provides customers flexibility. It can be a standalone solution or integrated with existing applications.
AT&T will initially work with Microsoft to bring Operations Center to market. The solution takes advantage of AT&T IoT Platform Services (Flow) and the Azure Cloud platform, providing global scale and high availability. The solution will initially be deployed using AT&T Global SIM on LTE and LTE-M networks and, in the future, will be available through AT&T multi-network connectivity using other network modes like satellite and WiFi. AT&T Control Center will be used for SIM management, provisioning and activation. It helps customers speed time to market, run operations more efficiently and manage connected IoT device initiatives.
AT&T Asset Management – Operations Center is the first in a series of multi-market, multi-cloud reference solutions built on AT&T IoT Platform (Flow) for IoT to help speed enterprise customers’ time to market. It will be available to beta customers later this year.
