October 24, 2019
LONDON. AT&T is delivering IoT connectivity and services to track vital military equipment around the world. Marshall Aerospace and Defence Group (Marshall ADG) will deploy AT&T's IoT capabilities into its overall connected container service model for its end customers, including its container service contract with the Dutch Army.
The solution is intended to allow Marshall ADG to monitor the location, condition, and temperature of ambient containers across a range of use cases. It includes AT&T's Global SIM and AT&T's Control Centre platform for remote monitoring and management, plus tier 2 helpdesk and enhanced support services.
Marshall ADG expects to deliver more than 1,400 connected container systems over the next five years. These include Command and Control and medical container systems, workshops, controlled atmosphere, and basic stores units.
The ability to know exactly where a container is, what's in it and its state of readiness for deployment, means military commanders should have the information to deliver the right equipment where and when it's needed.
