AT&T Partner Exchange adds IoT platform
The expanded portfolio will soon join AT&T’s wireline and wireless offerings to give solution providers a one-stop-shop to create integrated solutions for their business customers. The portfolio will be joined by a newly released guide to help solution providers incorporate mobility into their go-to-market strategies.
AT&T intends to bring IoT opportunities within reach of enterprising solution providers. The rollout of the AT&T Control Center, powered by Jasper, is intended to give solution providers the foundation to deploy, manage and scale their IoT solutions with nationwide connectivity through the AT&T 4G LTE network.
The cloud-based platform will support the sale of IoT solutions to customers across different verticals.
"For the past year, we've been working hand-in-hand with our solution providers, assessing their needs and readiness around IoT. We feel the time is right," Galvanek said.
"The Internet of Things has many of our solution providers curious – and excited. With the right tools, the opportunity for them and their customers is very real."
"There isn't an industry or business out there that wouldn't benefit from the insights, efficiencies and potential revenue gains fueled by the IoT," said Lisa Park, assistant vice president of channel marketing – Internet of Things, AT&T Business Solutions.
"We've been rapidly growing our IoT ecosystem, launching new tools and forming alliances to help businesses capitalize on the many benefits of the connected landscape. Extending our IoT capabilities to solution providers in AT&T Partner Exchange will help accelerate this momentum."
Velocitor Solutions, a solution provider in AT&T Partner Exchange, participated in the pilot of the AT&T Control Center.
"With access to AT&T Control Center, we can help our business customers reap the benefits of connectivity on a much grander scale," said Rudy Nemeth, vice president of sales, Velocitor Solutions. "Opportunities in IoT are endless. Working with AT&T Partner Exchange, we are better equipped to capture these."
