At AT&T, we help companies of every size develop IoT solutions to lower costs, gain efficiencies, and improve competitive advantages. In the push to create the next great IoT solution, it’s not enough simply to connect to the Internet of Things. You need to connect to the type of network that best fits the specific demands of your IoT devices. Whether your ultimate decision is based on cost, mobility, battery life or global reach, we have an IoT network that can meet your needs.
IoT wireless networks are evolving to help meet the needs of a wide variety of connected devices so they can work seamlessly together. With such a broad diversity of potential applications, it can be difficult, if not impossible, to bring a one-size-fits-all approach to every situation.
To choose the right network requires consideration of many factors: from coverage needs and device location to power consumption and the cost of deployment. Each of these factors can contribute to a different network decision.
Cellular connectivity has long been the choice for large-scale device deployments in part due to its global coverage by Mobile Network Operators (MNOs), based on widely adopted standards. AT&T provides global coverage across more than 200 countries and territories and over 500 wireless networks with Global SIM technology. LTE coverage is currently available in 85 countries and growing.
