3.    Vision


The AT&T foundry for innovation is involved in progressing solutions to meet patient and healthcare provider needs through the use of IoT devices and partner supplied solutions. 

 We will know if we are successful if we can ensure repeated service problems are automatically handled.  

 We have a vision to include blockchain technologies for device identity and asset management. 



3.1. Description of this project

With 50 billion connected devices service providers such as AT&T need to manage these in real time from onboarding to end of life.  So we need to automate the management and problem resolution processes to deliver a great customer experience.

3.2. Project Problem Statement/ Problem Significance/ Solution Impact

<< This is a mandatory section for the Problem Statement:


As an Operator

  • I need to manage a very large amount of devices from onboarding to end of life


  • So that I can manage a diversity of devices and services

    To do this, I need to automate the management and problem resolution processes


  • I know I am successful when repeated service problems are automatically handled and the device is back in service without human intervention


What makes this a significant problem to be solved?

Automate a process to enable large scale IoT

Automate a process to reduce costs

Utilize machine learning to enable automated resolution to reduce costs and improve customer experience

Utilize Blockchain to enable secure asset management

where the transmission of data is non hackable,

the use of a Distributed ledger with near RT updates enables - Guaranteed chronological data with timestamps, the data communication of data is irreversible and auditable

Blockchain operates in a trustless environment but is secure

 << This is a mandatory section for the Solution Impact

What will change about the way your Champions do business if this problem is solved?

Real world business problem solution for AT&T Healthcare foundry  - solution is applicable to many service provider IoT operations
 Scalable device management
Identity Mgt via blockchain is a new methodology to utilize
Automated problem resolution
The tmforum Aretefacts: Business model canvas and value statements, curatefx  - helps with quantifying, describing the problem and solution


3.3. Resourcing of Project

This is a mandatory section for each Catalyst Project.  The goal of this section is to clearly identify all the resources and skills required by the project to successfully deliver the demonstration and deliverables in Section 2.

Please identify the companies and specific people committed to participate in this work and the role to be filled by each participant.
