“M” in LTE-M should stand for MORE – more Internet of Things
AT&T is a leader in the Internet of Things (IoT) and our plans for a nationwide deployment of a LTE-M network for Internet of Things is ahead of schedule in the second quarter of 2017. We’re also planning LTE-M availability in Mexico by the end of the year.
LTE-M will be the catalyst for large-scale IoT deployments. Allowing more businesses and people to tap into IoT will transform how we live, work and care for our world. Currently, we are already testing LTE-M network and chipset technology in:

Smart pallets with RM2
Smart beverage fountains with PepsiCo

Shipping container monitoring with Xirgo Technologies
Connected vehicles and fleet & asset management with CalAmp
Home security and automation with Telular.
Devices designed to operate on the LTE-M network have advantages over traditional IoT connectivity options. You’ll see:
