Re: AT&T Scores Smart City Deals With GE, FirstNet
@dcawrey, great example!  I believe amusement parks can be great use cases and innovators, providing new customer experiences that move them forward.  They have already demonstrated environments where robotics fit.  I can see further developments with self-driving cars, smarter cities, etc.

Re: AT&T Scores Smart City Deals With GE, FirstNet
@freehe  I'm particularly concerned about being watched in my own home. I remember in the movie "Snowden" when he put a piece of tape over something on his computer. It was a camera. I never noticed it on my laptop, but there is a camera there. I need to put something over that right away!

Re: Smart cities need to be fair cities as well..
@DHagar, good point. I agree. Companies will have to develop a strong implementation plan and develop a strong contigency/mitigation plan for hiccups during implementation. I think right now across the country Trust Levels are down. Standardization, policies and procedures will also need to be implemented.

Smart Ciites Player
I agree with Zeto. No one company can do it all. However, many companies give the impression that they can. It will take several collaborations, forums, certifications, standardization, R&D, conferences, and partnerships to provide and meet customer demands regarding smart technology. No one company will be able to meets all these needs.

Smart City LED Lights
LED street lights may be cost effective but they are dangerous. Drivers cannot see the light until they get right to the traffic light. This can cause accidents especially during rush hour traffic when many drivers block the box, right lights and/or slam on brakes because they were unable to see the light from a distance. Non-led lights are much better because drivers can see the traffic lights from a distance and can stop in advance and slow down at a reasonable rate.

Re: AT&T Scores Smart City Deals With GE, FirstNet
@srufolo1, I totally agree. I read the book "Dragnet Nation" by Julia Angwin. It takes all about the multiple ways that Big Brother watches citizens. It is very scary.

With the increase of cameras practically on every corner, residents need to be concerned about privacy. Everyone is watched all the time even when they are in their home. Companies state cameras are only used for a single purpose but any camera or device that captures images or presents as image can monitor and watch as well as capture images. This is moving us towards a censored country where everyone is watched and nothing can be done about it.

Re: AT&T Scores Smart City Deals With GE, FirstNet
@afwriter. I agree. AT&T is a leader in the technology industry. I would like to see other companies take the position as leader to provide some competition to AT&T. Creating trends is how a company sets itself apart from its competitors.

Re: AT&T Scores Smart City Deals With GE, FirstNet
I was reading recently about the competition in "worlds" at amusement parks like Disney has. The advent of smart technology could really help improve amusement park experiences. 

I'm sure there's a lot of behind the scenes work going on to make this a reality.

@srufolo1, I think that is the beauty of AT&T's design and vision.  They are developing a platform for their capabilities that provides multiple solutions to be utilized in solving their customers problems and delivering new value.

Re: AT&T Scores Smart City Deals With GE, FirstNet
I think what makes AT&T so exceptional is that they don't just follow the trends, but create them. They seem to be the driver of mobile technology in the U.S. right now.
