The new AT&T Foundry innovation center adjacent to Georgia Tech opened this week in Midtown. The center will speed up the company’s development of the latest technologies, applications and platforms. The opening marks Atlanta as one of only four global locations chosen for an AT&T Foundry.
The Atlanta Foundry is the result of a partnership including AT&T, Cisco, Georgia Tech, the City of Atlanta, and state and local business leadership. In a statement, AT&T said the team at Atlanta Foundry will test and develop products involving AT&T’s recently-launched home security and automation service Digital Life. It will also create new apps and services related to the “connected car,” mobility, emerging devices and AT&T U-verse. Host sponsor Cisco will collaborate with AT&T on projects and help identify key third-party developers, startups, investors, inventors and other entrepreneurs to bring into the facility.
