During #ATTsmartcities, we’ll discuss the following and more!

  • What exactly a “smart city” is and its impacts on residents  
  • How smart cities use the Internet of Things (IoT) to optimize our use of valuable resources like energy and water, to improve quality of life and impacts on the planet
  • How AT&T is using the right technology & IoT solutions, securely, to help cities become cleaner, safer and stronger
  • How the technology that weaves through smart cities has the potential to enable large-scale carbon emissions and water savings
