AT&T and Cisco Launch 5G Service for IoT

AT&T and Cisco have introduced 5G network capabilities to boost performance for IoT-applications across the US. AT&T’s 5G network can now deliver lower latency and faster speeds for enterprise customer IoT deployments using 5G certified devices. The Control Center powered by Cisco gives businesses near real-time visibility of all the IoT devices on their network and helps mitigate security risks, identify anomalies in data usage and optimize traffic classification reporting.5G Service for IoT

Adding the capabilities of AT&T’s nationwide sub-6GHz 5G network allows enterprises from many different fields – among them manufacturing, automotive and entertainment – to begin to take advantage of higher bandwidth and lower latency currently available to more than 251 million people across the U. S. Some examples are:

  • Owners of 5G-capable connected vehicles will be able to experience faster speeds for downloading, streaming, and sharing music, video, software updates, navigation and mapping while on-the-go.
  • Mobile Personal Emergency Response Device providers and users can have an improved sense of independence and security with faster response times provided via 5G.
  • Manufacturers can take advantage of 5G’s-low latency speeds to use camera technology to monitor and identify product defects in near real time on the assembly line to reduce waste.

5G will empower businesses across all industries to digitize faster and reshape business models,

said Masum Mir, Vice President and General Manager, Cable, Mobility and IoT, Cisco.

Together with AT&T we are marking a milestone for AT&T Control Center customers to harness the power of 5G to connect industrial and business-critical devices for ultimate IoT visibility.

Working with Cisco, we continue to help businesses deploy IoT devices and applications faster and more securely and get more value out of devices they use,

said William Stovall, Vice President, Mobility, IoT and 5G, AT&T.

This is an important first step toward the IoT massive connectivity that will eventually create opportunities for enterprises to realize the full potential of IoT.
