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.
