In August 2017, the FCC took two important steps to spur broadband investment and deployment in rural America. First, the FCC paved the way to start its innovative Connect America Fund Phase II “Reverse Auction” in 2018. And second, the FCC established procedures to identify areas in rural America that will be eligible for funding through the Mobility Fund Phase II program.
AT&T has been selected by the First Responder Network Authority (FirstNet) to build and manage the first broadband network dedicated to America’s police, firefighters, and emergency medical services (EMS). With FirstNet, AT&T will be able to offer first responders the technology they need to better communicate and collaborate across agencies and jurisdictions.
Connections directing autonomous cars, robotic surgeries, or public safety communications must not drop — ever.
AT&T is kicking off the first phase of an edge computing test zone at the AT&T Foundry in Palo Alto, California. The first project getting underway at the test zone is a collaboration with GridRaster to test augmented and virtual reality (AR/VR) experiences on mobile devices.
AT&T is working with Amazon Web Services to develop the AT&T LTE-M Button — a small network-connected plastic button that can perform a task when pressed. The LTE-M Button will help us connect more things in more places than ever before.
With all 50 U.S. states, five territories, and the District of Columbia opted into FirstNet, AT&T is given a unique opportunity to bridge public safety capabilities with the Internet of Things (IoT).
FirstNet brings public safety a dedicated communications platform to help them save lives and protect communities. And now AT&T has unveiled the new visual identity for FirstNet products and services.
