By Abhi Ingle

It’s no secret — we’re developing some of the most innovative products and services to mobilize our customers’ work and personal lives. We strive to create technology that meets the diverse needs and transforms how our customers work and play.

Any time we are recognized for driving innovation, it’s icing on the cake. We received the honor of being among the finalists and winners of this year’s CTIA Awards. And it’s with great pleasure that I can share the winners:

AT&T Wi-Fi – Small Site

First place

Category: Emerging Technology (E-Tech) | In-Building Wireless – Small Cell, Wi-Fi, LAN

AT&T Wi-Fi – Small Site makes it easy for businesses to offer Internet service to their customers, and deliver a customizable welcome page to them when they connect. Consumers expect Wi-Fi in store, restaurants, waiting rooms, and other places where they have dwell time. Business owners appreciate a “plug-and-play” Wi-Fi solution that they can install themselves. With AT&T Wi-Fi – Small Site, companies can quickly deploy a service that their customers can use and enjoy, and get the added marketing and loyalty benefits that a branded user connection page delivers.

AT&T Work Platform

Third place

Category: MobITS – Mobile IT Solutions of the Year  |  Mobile Device Management

AT&T Work Platform helps businesses streamline integration and management of employee-owned devices. The bring-your-own-device (BYOD) phenomenon continues to gain traction.  Companies and employees have to work harder when it comes time to reconcile usage charges. AT&T Work Platform is a solution that lets businesses help to cover their employee’s business related data4, voice, and messaging usage, on their personal devices. And, it keeps employee and company service bills separate.

We were also honored to have been finalists for these awards:

AT&T Mobile Office Suite


Category: Emerging Technology (E-Tech)  |  Mobile Cloud

Small businesses can take their work virtually anywhere with AT&T Mobile Office Suite. They can get fast, easy, and highly-secure access to voice calls, email, calendars, instant messaging, file sharing, and more. Businesses can work together in a highly-secure manner by voice, video or, Web. And it doesn’t matter if an employee is on their desktop, laptop, smartphone, or tablet. It’s an all-in-one bundle at a predictable monthly cost. By taking the office mobile, we’re creating powerful opportunities for small and medium businesses.
