AT&T Joins Microsoft Partner Solutions Center

AT&T has joined the Microsoft Partner Solutions Center (MPSC), which is a 21,000-square-foot facility located in building 25 on the Redmond, Wash., campus of Microsoft. The center features Microsoft's scalable Hyper-V technology laboratories, partner showcase labs, an executive technology briefing room and partner offices for building, testing and designing superior network solutions that focus on delivering greater availability to revenue-centric, network-based applications and services. The center is designed to engage customers through executive briefings, technology demonstrations, architectural design sessions, proof-of-concepts, training sessions and custom engagements.

AT&T's involvement with the MPSC enables Microsoft's multiple lines of businesses and customers to test out applications that are being wirelessly enabled over the entire suite of Windows Mobile 6.0 and Windows Mobile 6.1 devices, such as Mobile Device Manager, TeleNav Track, Wi-Fi and simultaneous voice and data using Windows Mobile 6 with tethering.

AT&T also maintains a full-service retail store in the MPSC that allows Microsoft campus employees easy access to the latest Windows Mobile-based phones, accessories and services.
