North Texas is home to the Telecom Corridor, clusters of technology and telecommunications companies that are driving the flow and protection of information in today’s global economy. The technology corridor continues to thrive due to an abundance of highly educated and skilled workers, world-class research universities and a focus on technological innovation both in North Texas and throughout the state.
From manufacturing and software development to information services and professional technical services, the region’s emerging technologies, such as next-generation wireless and broadband communications, artificial intelligence and virtual reality, are gaining national recognition.
Irving-Las Colinas serves as a critical hub for the technology sector with industry giants such as AT&T, Microsoft, NEC Corporation, Oracle, TrendMicro and Verizon having significant presences in our city. Our tech companies are helping enhance the functioning of collaborative robots, powering data centers across the country using renewable energy, implementing state-of-the-art facial recognition software to thwart terrorism, streamlining digital communications, and developing the software of tomorrow that will allow us to transmit and protect information faster and better than ever before.
Our innovation ecosystem extends far beyond traditional, blue-chip companies. We embrace new start-ups, incubators, accelerators, and coworking spaces like WeWork, Workonomy and VariSpace, all of which are contributing to this growing sector.
We also foster the development of companies focused on cybersecurity, particularly in the areas of blockchain and cryptocurrency, and work to share best practices with businesses in our community through regular symposiums.
Irving-Las Colinas plays a significant role in the education of future technology leaders. In our community, you will find Atos’ Business Technology and Innovation Center, AT&T’s Center for Learning, Microsoft’s Technology Center and an ONLC Training Center, just to name a few.
Our central time zone makes communicating with clients, vendors and suppliers on either coasts or abroad easier, as does our central location, which allows for same-day business travel and shipping to either coast and dozens of daily flights to international destinations.
