AT&T today announced that it has teamed up with Telefonica to expand the reach of its Digital Life platform. Digital Life is the home automation program AT&T has been pitching for several years. Telefonica is licensing Digital Life platform on a trial basis. Whether or not Telefonica will contribute to the platform is unclear, and the companies wouldn't say if the platform will be available to others. Part of the Digital Life program also includes a new goal of helping take care of the elderly. Digital Life Care's intent is to enable caregivers to better provide for their aging relatives, friends, or charges. It will incorporate new mobile tools accessible from smartphones, all powered by the Digital Life platform. The company is starting in-house trials this year with a launch planned for next year.
