AT&T has announced it will open an innovation center near Georgia Tech in Atlanta.

Company officials said Tuesday that the innovation center is expected to help AT&T speed development of new applications and platforms.

Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed said the development reinforces the city's position as a technology capital of the southeast.

In a statement, company officials said the innovation center will test and develop products for Digital Life, AT&T's recently-launched home security and automation service.

Officials with the Georgia Department of Economic Development say the company is making a $3 million investment in the innovation center.
