AT&T to Deploy the Synchronoss Personal Cloud Solution
Comprehensive solution will give AT&T subscribers the ability to safely back up valuable personal content from any Android smartphone through a value-added cloud service
Synchronoss Technologies, Inc. , a global leader and innovator of cloud, messaging, digital and IoT products, today announced that it is powering AT&T Personal Cloud, a new service for AT&T Mobility wireless customers. The Synchronoss solution will integrate into a suite of selected AT&T services, using the cloud to vastly improve the subscriber’s overall experience. It will also give AT&T the ability to provide new value-added services to its wireless customers.
AT&T will offer its version of the Synchronoss Personal Cloud solution as a standalone value-added service that will integrate with the following AT&T cloud-based services:
- AT&T Mobile Transfer – The Synchronoss integration will give users of the AT&T Mobile Transfer app, a free service that enables the easy transfer of content from one device to another, the option to enroll in the AT&T Personal Cloud service. This will extend AT&T’s ability to support and protect subscriber content by ensuring that it is safely transferred and backed up.
- AT&T Setup & Transfer (Out Of Box Experience) – Functionality provided by Synchronoss, which was previously announced in mid-2019, gives subscribers using AT&T’s onboarding experience the ability to simply self-select value-added products and services during the device setup process.

This allows AT&T the ability to bring new services to customers.”
