SBC Technology Resources Inc.

Technology Resources, Inc. (TRI) is the applied research subsidiary of SBC Communications Inc, formerly known as Southwestern Bell Corporation. With headquarters in Austin, Texas, and locations in San Ramon and Pleasanton, California, our mission is to provide technology consulting and expertise to our clients, the SBC Communications family of companies, exploring new ways to incorporate leading-edge technology into communications products and services.

TRI's corporate role is critical. The SBC business units are relying on TRI to provide them with the creative and industry-leading technology necessary to gain a competitive advantage in the marketplace. For SBC to be a leader, technology application is essential and technical innovation must be pursued continuously.

With just over 300 employees, TRI has the advantage of being a small company, as well as the advantage of being part of one of the world's largest communications companies. Our technical staff of engineers, computer scientists, applied psychologists, and communications experts form one of the finest teams in the industry.

Being located in two of the leading high technology centers of the country, Austin, Texas, and the Silicon Valley in California, gives TRI the added advantage of being in close proximity to other high tech industry leaders, which stimulates collaboration on the advancement of technology issues. We also collaborate with some of the leading universities around the country to further broaden our research initiatives.

TRI provides employees with all the support tools and modern facilities needed for ongoing innovation and creative research. Key to our work are the state-of-the-art technical laboratories at our Texas and California locations.

From TRI's inception in 1988 as a corporate subsidiary of SBC we have continued to grow, both in size and in value to the corporation. We see that growth continuing, as the need to further technology advancements in the communications industry continues to expand.
