Move Toward a World Where Everything Is Connected 

The Internet of Things (IoT) has the potential to connect everything—from TVs and refrigerators to streetlights, utility meters, and cars. To take advantage of the IoT opportunity, you must quickly scale your network to reach all of these devices. And, the economics of network expansion must fit with the unique nature of IoT revenue models.

Make the Connections You Need

American Tower has the infrastructure, processes, and industry understanding to help you succeed in the IoT market. Whether your background is as a cable provider, a mobile network operator, or you focus solely on IoT applications, American Tower can help you connect more devices, faster.

Add antennas wherever needed to support the IoT applications that make the most sense for your market objectives:

  • Extend your reach with taller rural towers to support precision agriculture, forestry, mining, environmental, and surveying applications.
  • Go right to street level with networks of smart poles that enable smart city applications.

Accelerate Your Expansion Plans

Use our expertise and resources to get your sites up and running faster, with fewer hassles:

  • Talk to our specialists about the best way to optimize site selection and Radio Frequency (RF) design for your network buildout.
  • Find sites and apply online to accelerate leasing agreements.
  • Accelerate expansion with a complete suite of turnkey site development services and a single point of contact.

Talk to IoT Experts

Talk economics with experts who understand the IoT market and the unique nature of IoT business models and revenues.

We know IoT providers have very different financial realities than mobile network operators. As a result, we offer a number of ways to help you keep costs down:

  • Detailed Geographic Information Service (GIS) and site data let you intelligently narrow your search.
  • A team of local field technicians helps you evaluate potential sites to make more-informed decisions.

Contact us early in your network development projects, so we can help you make network infrastructure choices that match your IoT applications and business goals.
