“Since its founding three years ago, the mission of the AT&T Foundry® has been to identify great ideas, put the right people and technology ecosystem around them and move them quickly to market,” said John Donovan, Senior Executive Vice President of AT&T Technology and Network Operations, AT&T Inc.  “As a result, our customers are benefitting from great products and services that set the pace for innovation and our company is realizing more enhanced efficiencies internally.

“We’re planning to move fast at these new locations, which will be focused on accelerating many of the new technologies that will drive AT&T’s growth in the near future.”

From your front door to the front seat of your car, the AT&T Foundry® in Atlanta will lead the way in developing the next generation of lifestyle applications and services for Digital Life, AT&T’s recently-launched home security and automation service. The team will also create new apps and services related to the “connected car,” mobility, emerging devices, and AT&T U-verse.

The new AT&T Foundry® Machine-to-Machine and Connected Device (M2M/CD) center in Plano, Texas will bring world-class expertise, platforms, infrastructure and tools to the field of machine-to-machine and connected device technology.

“Think about ”smart” luggage and pet carriers that let you track those items from doorway to tarmac, anywhere in the world, or sealed shipping containers with sensors that detect moisture, or smart industrial machines that schedule their own maintenance prior to breakdown, or item-level inventory tracking that ensures the shelves at your favorite store are never empty, because the retailer knows exactly when to reorder and restock. These are just a few examples of what you might see coming out of Plano in the near future,” said Abhi Ingle, VP of Ecosystem and Innovation, AT&T.
