AT&T held the grand opening of its AT&T Foundry innovation center in Plano, Texas, the first of three permanent AT&T Foundry innovation centers opening worldwide. Permanent centers in Palo Alto, California, and Ra’anana, Israel, are planned to open later this year. The AT&T Foundry innovation centers represent a $70 million investment.

Temporary centers opened in Texas, California and Israel in 2010, and more than two dozen multi-company projects are already under way. Initial development tracks include telehealth, HTML5, new ways to deliver rich media, advanced check-in and location-based applications, and APIs, application programming interfaces that make network services easily available to developers.

The Plano center is an LTE test environment and has connectivity to AT&T Labs and the other innovation centers. Alcatel-Lucent is the host supplier for the AT&T Foundry Plano.  Amdocs and Ericsson are host suppliers for the Israel and Silicon Valley centers, respectively.

“At the AT&T Foundry, we bring the expertise of AT&T Labs into a collaborative environment with key industry technology providers and developers from Silicon Valley and all over the world,” said AT&T CTO John Donovan, in a statement.
