AT&T Fuels IoT Momentum with New Asset Management Solutions, Alliances, and Customers
OREANDA-NEWS. AT&T is helping companies across the world stay connected to their assets from almost anywhere. We’re now extending our air cargo tracking solutions to companies in Asia, offering developers more asset management tools, and helping businesses monitor more assets than ever before.
Businesses are using AT&T IoT technology to manage a wide range of assets that include air cargo, storage tanks, heavy equipment, and shipping containers. The adoption of Internet of Things (IoT) technology for asset management continues to grow rapidly. According to Machina Research, the high value asset management market is expected to have 400 million cellular and low-power devices by 2020.
“We’re now expanding our global footprint to help companies in Asia stay tethered to their assets across the world,” said Mike Troiano, vice president, Internet of Things (IoT), AT&T Business Solutions. “Whether an oil services company needs a real-time snapshot of inventories or a medical company needs to ship temperature-sensitive supplies, we’re making it easier for our customers to monitor their assets from almost anywhere.”
AT&T Cargo View with FlightSafe® helps companies remotely monitor the conditions of their shipped assets. This minimizes the risk of damaged, lost or stolen cargo. Businesses can monitor conditions such as location, temperature, light, motion, shock and pressure.
Launched in August 2014 in the U.S., AT&T Cargo View with FlightSafe® is now expanding to Asia. We’re teaming up with UPR, a leading logistics management provider in Japan, to use AT&T IoT technology. Together, we’ll enable customers to better manage their shipments in the sky, on land and at sea. This will help shippers mitigate risk, enhance quality control, and manage cost.
UPR will integrate AT&T Cargo View with FlightSafe®, an IoT solution, into its logistics management platform, World Keeper. UPR customers will be able to remotely monitor their shipments more closely. They can track shipments as they travel by air, road, rail and sea.
