Honeywell partners with AT&T on aircraft and freight IoT solutions
Honeywell is partnering with telecommunications giant AT&T to debut IoT solutions for aircraft and freight deployments around the world.
The companies are debuting the following solutions:
Connected Freight – Scalable IoT solution tracks and monitors critical shipments while they are in transit. Sensor tags attached to assets, pallets or individual packages not only provide location information, but also measure for shock and tilt, humidity, temperature and pressure changes. Logistics providers access a dashboard to receive status alerts and can react quickly to incidents that occur during shipment to prevent damage and loss.
Connected Aircraft –The AT&T global network connects aircraft services while on the ground. Honeywell’s GoDirect™ family provides operators, flight crews and maintenance teams with critical information to manage their services and network. These improve fleet management, flight safety, passenger experience, maintenance, flight operations, aircraft turnaround time and costs.
AT&T was chosen as a partner by Honeywell because of its existing global connectivity and IoT solutions.
Joe Mosele, VP of IoT Solutions at AT&T, says:
“We have enjoyed a business relationship with Honeywell for many years. Our IoT solutions are helping them to drive digital transformation in their transportation products.
Not only is Honeywell using data insights collected from its products to improve its own operations, but it’s also giving that technology to its customers to make informed decisions about their businesses.”
Honeywell believes combining AT&T’s network with its own technology will enable companies to make decisions and solve problems faster, improve reliability, and boost operational efficiency.
Sameer Agrawal, GM of IoT Solutions at Honeywell, comments:
“Our IoT collaboration with AT&T is adding value to the transportation and logistics products we provide our customers across the globe.
“It gives logistics providers near real-time data insights about their shipments in-transit. And we can unleash a wide array of connected products and services for aircraft operators.”
Honeywell will be making use of AT&T’s Control Center — powered by Cisco Jasper — which enables the deployment, management, and monetisation of connected devices and IoT solutions around the world.
