AT&T Labs-Research

Driving Invention, Delivering Innovation

More than a century ago, Alexander Graham Bell's historic phone call to Watson marked the beginning of a new voice communications era. The Bell Systems' founders knew that for technology to succeed they needed a sustained research and development organization dedicated to fostering continued growth through innovation. AT&T Bell Labs, first known as Bell Telephone Laboratories, was created in 1925 to answer the call and meet the needs of the future.
