The new AT&T Foundry innovation center opened last month in Atlanta with the support of networking giant Cisco. The new center will help build and develop improved solutions for the modern network, which many increasingly use as a medium to deliver entertainment.
Bob McIntyre, vice president and CTO for Cisco’s service provider group, explained to Enterprise Networking Planet that the Atlanta center is the fourth such innovation center that AT&T now operates.
“We’re put some amount of funding into this to get it going and we can’t disclose the exact figure,” McIntyre said. “We have over 1,600 people in Atlanta, so we’re already a major technology presence in Atlanta.”
