AT&T will deliver a presentation on energy conservation at CES 2016. AT&T says it will turn everyday objects like traffic lights and parking spots into tools. The tools will aid to manage congestion and conserve energy. The presentation will be part of the AT&T’s broader plan to diversify.
The strategy includes putting wireless access into all manner of devices. Even the expansion into Mexico and purchase of DirecTV is part of the plan. AT&T will officially reveal the plans at the annual CES tech expo.
