AT&T VP: Gearing up software-defined, edge-connected vehicles

MWC23 – As the connected vehicle market relies more on edge computing resources, cars can benefit from lower latency connections, avoid traffic congestion and access roadside assistance faster.

These are just a few of the capabilities AT&T is working on for connected vehicles, explains Cameron Coursey, VP of AT&T connected solutions, in the podcast.

Coursey discusses how the service provider is adding more software-defined capabilities to connected cars, and where 4G and 5G come into play for specific Internet of Things (IoT) use cases. He also touches on developments in other IoT use cases such as fleet management, asset tracking and reducing energy consumption in factories.
