AT&T's Connected Car Leadership
In 2014, AT&T launched two major initiatives to lead innovation in the connected car space. The first was a pioneering connected car innovation center in Atlanta, called the AT&T Drive Studio. It also launched a new global automotive solution and development platform, AT&T Drive.
AT&T Drive Studio features a working lab and showroom to build and exhibit the latest innovations. It is a hub where AT&T works directly with companies and responds to automakers' opportunities.
AT&T Drive is the company's connected car platform. This modular and flexible global solution helps car makers build unique solutions for the marketplace. Auto makers can choose the services and capabilities that are important to them. They can add features for connectivity, billing, data analytics and infotainment.
AT&T is a telematics leader and connects vehicles around the globe. In the second quarter of 2015, AT&T added 1.4 million connected devices. Of those devices, nearly 1 million were connected cars.
AT&T was the first major wireless carrier to launch a global SIM platform for cars. The platform lets automotive, consumer and M2M equipment makers use a single carrier to wirelessly connect products across the globe.
