Through 2009, AT&T has certified more than 370 wireless specialty consumer and machine-to-machine devices – such as e-readers, netbooks, digital photo frames, personal navigation devices, and home security monitoring and smart grid devices – for use on its mobile broadband network.
Last year, AT&T teamed with Jasper Wireless to build a proprietary platform to connect and support a variety of emerging consumer electronic and business devices on AT&T’s wireless network.
Additionally, the telco opened a dedicated emerging device certification lab in Austin to serve as the hub for testing network compatibility, data performance and audio quality for a broad range of non-traditional, wirelessly-enabled devices.
AT&T also launched a new web site – www.att.com/edo – for consumer electronics manufacturers. (For more, click here).
