AT&T is launching a new business division in Atlanta called Digital Life Services, focusing on new opportunities like remote health care, energy management and home security, according to a report from the Atlanta-Journal Constitution.

AT&T isn’t a newcomer to the energy smart grid or telemedicine, by any means. But what’s new here may be the way AT&T is approaching these vertical markets. Digital Life Services could be the vehicle AT&T will use to become a retailer of applications that it currently addresses through the wholesale market.
