AT&T and members of Bridge Alliance have formed a long-term agreement to extend their global connected car leadership to new territories. Bridge Alliance is a group of mobile carriers in Asia Pacific, the Middle East and Africa. Today, AT&T connects more than 11 million cars in the United States and abroad. Together, the two organizations expect to grow the number of connected cars on the road.

This collaboration sets forth the framework to extend the geographic coverage AT&T could provide to automotive manufacturers looking to enhance their infotainment offerings in the growth markets served by members of Bridge Alliance. This will help the 22 global automotive and long-haul truck brands that AT&T works with create an improved driving experience for their global customer base.

According to AT&T, for the customers collectively served by Bridge Alliance, this helps to give them access to solutions like Wi-Fi hotspots, internet radio and live traffic. Until now, these features have been more difficult for automotive manufacturers to implement globally.

Beyond better serving the needs of the auto manufacturers, the companies believe that this collaboration will help bring new IoT solutions forward in the global automotive industry.
