Tracy Wolverton: AT&T to launch network for Internet of Things

SAN RAMON — In the very near future, the pallets used in warehouses and on trucks to help move products, the water meter attached to your house and even the soda fountain at your favorite restaurant may all be connected to the internet.

On Tuesday, AT&T announced that by the end of June it will be turning on some new technology nationwide that will help devices such as these go online. Dubbed LTE-M, the technology was designed for the Internet of Things.
“We’re showing that not only is it real, but it’s crossing many different industries,” said Chris Penrose, the company’s president of Internet of Things solutions, at a press event here on Tuesday.
