AT&T, China Mobile Partner for IoT

AT&T_logoBARCELONA, Spain, Feb 27, 2017 – AT&T and China Mobile have agreed to work together to further enable the internet of things (IoT). The deal will help AT&T global business customers connect and deploy their assets and offerings in the Chinese market.

They’re one of the first global operators to establish a relationship with China Mobile. The carrier covers more than 1.3 billion people with its 4G network. That makes it the largest 4G network in the world.

China is one of the fastest growing markets. It holds incredible opportunity for our global business customers,” said Chris Penrose, president, internet of things Solutions, AT&T. “Working with China Mobile means we can further develop that opportunity. This makes it an even more exciting time to be in the IoT.”

So how will it work? Together, they’re developing a new tech platform that will seamlessly move a business customer’s AT&T IoT subscription over to China Mobile’s local service. The behind-the-scenes switch will help simplify the supply chain for their customers looking to expand to China. This will give them more speed to market and greater efficiency in driving new revenue streams.

AT&T serves nearly 3.5 million business customers, helping them connect their devices around the world.

“We look forward to helping AT&T business customers bring their connected solutions to our market,” said Dr. Li Feng, chairman & CEO, China Mobile International. “We believe this will help unlock new options and experiences for our customers while achieving one of our core goals – increasing the number of connected devices on our network.”
