The new solution integrates the secured architecture of Azure Sphere, an inclusive IoT security solution, comprising cloud services, hardware, and OS, with Azure IoT services and the multi-layered and worldwide security of AT&T's core network.

"With the breadth and scope of Azure's global platform and capabilities, Microsoft emerges as an ideal partner in our accelerated transformation into a cloud-first enterprise delivering cloud-based video and data managed services", said JP Hemingway, CEO of SES Networks who leads SES's corporate cloud initiative.

The aim is to streamline cloud connectivity for IoT devices. An AT&T SIM allows connections in 200 countries across 500 carriers, according to a news release. This AT&T powered guardian device with Azure Sphere will help businesses transform their operations through massive IoT deployments at scale, the announcement said. The company's guardian device can be easily installed, effectively furnishing an end-to-end solution for connecting equipment and machines to the cloud, circumventing the requirement for public Internet. AT&T will also provide managed services and support for the device.

As per the detailed specifications, the Google Pixel 5 is said to sport a 6-inch FHD+ display with 1080x2340 pixel resolution. We fully expect the Pixel 5 (and potentially a 5G version of the cheaper Pixel 4A) to be announced on September 30 .

That's a boon for a variety of businesses, such as restaurants, coffee shops, elevators, hospitals, manufacturing plants, and more. Customers can connect their devices and machines to their own cloud environment without the need to connect to a Wi-Fi through a third-party network connection that may not meet their high security standards.

AT&T and Microsoft launched their extensive multi-year alliance last year. "Our partnership with Microsoft enables us to now go a step further enriching our value proposition within the Azure ecosystem, allowing us to provide our customers with products and services to advance their cloud strategies for even better, more resilient business outcomes", said Paul Joyce, Executive Vice President of Global Solutions, Orange Business Services. Our smart, highly secure solutions serve almost 3 million global businesses - almost all of the Fortune 1000.
