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.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
