DALLAS - AT&T Alliance Channel is adding the AT&T Smart Cities – Irrigation solution to its portfolio. The system uses IoT controllers to track water flow and usage in near real-time.

AT&T works with HydroPoint, a company specializing in smart water management systems. WeatherTrak smart controllers use the weather to determine water needs. [1] The AT&T network lets solution providers help customers meet water conservation goals and reduce water consumption by 40%.

Solution providers can help businesses in retail, office parks, landscaping, golf courses, and hotels and resorts.

“IoT solutions offer new functionality, reliability and capabilities that transcend traditional product limits,” said Kevin Leonard, vice president, Alternate Channels at AT&T. “Advanced water management lets businesses use near real-time data to manage landscape water management. This will save them money and the planet water.”

The AT&T Smart Cities – Irrigation solution takes the guesswork out of traditional irrigation systems. They are controlled by timers or manual devices and don’t let you manage water remotely. The solution helps stop overwatering. Excess water can erode the landscape or flow off site, carrying fertilizer, pesticides or animal waste into local water systems.

Businesses can also track water usage, identify leaks and breaks in pipes and stop water flow before damage and water waste occurs. The flow management products can retrofit to current systems, making upgrades simple and cost effective.

Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.

During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.

She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
