AT&T to Open Two New

by Parks Associates | Jun. 25, 2013

AT&T announced its intentions to open two "innovation centers" as part of the company's desire to expand their reach beyond smartphones and tablets. 

This announcement comes as part of AT&T's plan to remake the company's image into a more up-to-date organization that is capable of jumping on new trends.  The new facilities will serve as feeders for new ideas both from within the company and from regional start-ups.

In Atlanta, AT&T plans to open what it calls a "foundry," where the company plans to focus on developing apps and services for AT&T's connected car business, its home security service Digital Life, emerging devices, and its U-Verse initiative.   

The second facility the company plans to open is in Plano, TX.  At this operation, AT&T plans to focus on machine-to-machine connected devices, such as ATM machines or digital billboards.  It will center more on the business end of connected devices.
