Re: Smart cities...
AT&T's move to Miami certainly will play well for the company. Miami after all is a big pot full of folks from all over the world. Latin visitors play a big part of the scene, and no doubt the tourists from all over the world will spead the word about Miami's IoT and technical infrastructure probably leading to even more projects through AT&T expertise spreading widely to new cities.

Re: Smart cities...
Totally agree -- and this is one thing that smart city providers such as AT&T, Verizon, IBM et al do promise. By doing this, they say cities will reduce carbon emissions (obviously fewer vehicles will sit idling for no reason) and boost productivity since drivers will get where they want to go faster. When we relocated from Long Island, NY to Brevard County, FL, one thing we immediately noticed was the greater use of sensor traffic lights in this region. Far fewer lights are on timers so, at night, you generally get green lights all the way home.

Re: Smart cities...
Regarding AT&T's smart cities, what I'd like to see are smart traffic lights. As a whole, traffic lights are terribly ineffcient. If you've ever had to sit at a traffic intersection when there is no cross traffic, you probably know what I'm talking about. Let's make traffic intersections smarter. Please.

Re: Smart cities...
Well, keep in mind many providers felt the same way about home security services, yet despite having been in that sector for years, you'll be hard pressed to find a single residential ISP willing to crow about the number of subscribers they've signed up for security and home automation services. Having a path into the home isn't a guarantee of adoption of these kinds of things.

Re: Smart cities...
I don't know. I'd say larger companies like telcos and cable have a bog head start when it comes to the networks supporting IOT, whether it's WiFi or cell. Can't think of another type of provider that's already in so many businesses and homes.

Re: Smart cities...
True, especially given the size and scope of their already-deployed networks. Has been a relatively natural evolution to embrace in car cellular technology, etc. I just can't help but think some smaller companies will do a better job when it comes to real innovation and disruption, at least on the hardware and software end user portion of the experience.
