AT&T, Aira extend global data agreement for IoT
AT&T and Aira extend their agreement as Aira makes AT&T its global data provider as it begins to take the service to Australia, Canada and the U.K. This comes at a meaningful time. Today marks the 7th Global Accessibility Awareness Day. The purpose of GAAD is to get everyone talking, thinking, and learning about digital access and inclusion for people with disabilities. The AT&T global network connects Aira's smart glasses, worn by blind and low vision users known as "Explorers," to trained, professional agents. Agents use a built-for-purpose dashboard that provides details such as the Explorer's location and profile, in combination with a secure, near real-time stream of video. At just the tap of a button, this information is provided to Explorers so they can perform almost any task. Aira worked with the AT&T Foundry for Connected Health to improve the delivery of its groundbreaking platform. Aira will begin to market its service in Australia and Canada this month and in the U.K. later this year.
