AT&T; CTO John Donovan welcomes guests to the new AT&T; Foundry innovation center in Raanana, Israel on June 14, 2011.

Last week AT&T opened its latest Foundry innovation center in Ra’anana, Israel, together with Amdocs.

 

This new Foundry is a collaborative environment where developers and start-ups work on innovative mobile solutions for AT&T and technology providers. This facility is the second permanent AT&T Foundry to open worldwide, the other being in Plano, Texas.

 

“The AT&T Foundry network is a collaborative environment where AT&T researchers, key industry technology providers and developers from all over the world innovate in new ways,” said AT&T CTO John Donovan. “Project managers drive project development in 30- and 90-day sprints that allow us to cut the time required to evolve great ideas into products and services by two thirds.”

 

“Fostering innovation and bringing new ideas to our customers is a key part of our strategic approach to deliver more business value,” said Eli Gelman, president and chief executive officer of Amdocs Management Ltd. “The team in Ra’anana has deep ties with the startup community and specializes in identifying unique technologies that can benefit AT&T and their customers. It offers startups and developers the environment to initiate and advance projects by providing technological expertise to make their idea happen.”

 

The Foundry’s will work together, and all will include equipment dedicated to application and service development, prototyping, testing and demonstration of emerging capabilities to facilitate development of new applications, devices, cloud services and enabling technologies.

 

The AT&T Foundry is a core component of AT&T’s strategy to drive innovations. Cisco and Juniper Networks also plan to participate in the centers as infrastructure providers and collaborators.
