AT&T Expands its Foundry Innovation Center Opens In Plano

AT&T has opened its second innovation center in Plano, Texas.

The new AT&T Foundry, which is located on a floor above the first facility will help hardware developers by providing tools such as a 3D printer and a shielded copper testing room called a Faraday Cage that blocks external radio frequency signals.  The two facilities will be regular collaborators, with the downstairs team often developing the software and services for the hardware being printed, soldered and assembled upstairs.

"Adding intelligence and connectivity to a new and wide range of machines is a huge opportunity, and we welcome the challenge," said John Donovan, Senior Executive Vice President of AT&T Technology and Network Operations, AT&T. "This new AT&T Foundry facility has the capability to rapidly prototype hardware and develop the sophisticated software needed in the growing M2M and connected device space."
