Synchronoss Technologies has joined the AT&T Smart Cities Strategic Alliance which was formed in 2016 to support the launch of AT&T’s smart city framework initiative.
The framework, which aims to enhance cities’ connectivity, is made up of several key industry players including major network equipment vendors, IT service providers, chipset manufacturers including Cisco, IBM and Intel.
As part of the AT&T Smart Cities Alliance, Synchronoss will orchestrate its digital, messaging, cloud, and IoT technologies to innovate across the vertical segments of a Smart City. By working with K2View, and leveraging its real-time analytics Fabric platform, Synchronoss will integrate disparate databases, providing notifications and alerts to synchronize information across vertical segments.
Synchronoss helps cities enhance the operations of managing their digital nodes and data through the automation orchestration of digital touch points, to cloud storage and smart messaging.
- Synchronoss Digital powers the activation of IoT devices and the automation of data analysis, workflows, and fulfilment. These functions will ensure that devices are able to be connected and work together effectively and efficiently.
- Synchronoss Messaging is a smart, automated dialogue interface that lets people converse with devices, nodes, and partners to better manage the operation of IoT use cases. This includes the use of Bot messaging and AI driven notifications and alerts.
- Synchronoss Cloud provides a secure, single point data storage to allow IoT systems to access data securely and in real-time. The importance of secure cloud storage is evident in many current IoT and smart city use cases; for example, the data gathered by drones needs to be stored in a secure cloud that is accessible in real-time according to pre-defined permissions.
