siliconreview AT&T and Intel teamed up to test drone technology

Wireless provider AT&T partnered with chipmaker Intel to test the functionality of drones on its high-speed LTE wireless network.
AT&T will work with Intel to examine the efficiency of drones on its LTE network at higher altitudes and potential interference with airwaves related to areas such as video streaming and flight information.

Intel, which has been aggressively investing in drone technology in recent years. With the US wireless market over-saturated, AT&T is betting on growth from the “Internet of Things,” or web-connected machines and gadgets from cars, home appliances to drones, a new battleground for the company and rivals ranging from Verizon Communications to Amazon.com.

Chris Penrose, AT&T’s senior vice president, Internet of Things solutions, said.

“AT&T and Intel will be testing how the network can enable the most exciting business use cases for drones.”

AT&T’s LTE network can help bring wireless connectivity to industries such as logistics, agriculture, construction and insurance.

At Mobile World Congress in Barcelona this week, Intel has set up an “Intel Drone Zone” to demonstrate its drone technology over AT&T’s wireless network.
