DALLAS -- AT&T* today opened its latest AT&T Foundry innovation center in Ra’anana, Israel, together with Amdocs (NYSE: DOX). The facility is a collaborative environment where AT&T and technology providers work with start-ups and developers to get the latest innovations and services into the hands of AT&T customers more quickly than ever before.

The Ra’anana center is the second permanent AT&T Foundry facility to open worldwide. It replaces a temporary facility where dozens of collaborative projects have been underway since AT&T and Amdocs announced plans to collaborate last July. A permanent center hosted by Alcatel-Lucent opened in Plano, Texas, in February. Work is ongoing in temporary facilities in Silicon Valley and San Francisco, with a permanent center hosted by Ericsson planned to open later this year in Palo Alto, Calif.

AT&T Foundry development tracks include mHealth, 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. Projects at the Ra’anana center are enabling integrated mobile and wired broadband capabilities crossing multiple screens, including smartphones, PCs, televisions and emerging devices.

“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.”
