Telecom equipment provider Nokia Siemens Networks has opened new and expanded R&D centre in Bengaluru, India, to develop, test and deliver software to support the telecoms’ networks.

The company’s previous development centre in Bengaluru started operations in 1994. The new facility, which is one of the company’s largest, currently has a workforce of approximately 2,300 with space to expand to 3,000 depending on the requirement.

Nokia Siemens said that the new development centre is equipped with R&D facilities, telepresence to enable strong interaction with the company’s other development sites and hosts one of the company’s three remote testing laboratories.

The centre also hosts experts in pre-sales, product management, program management and technical support and process and quality-assurance activities, Nokia Siemens said.

Johann Haslinger, head of development centre Bengaluru at Nokia Siemens Networks, said: “For many years, our previous Bengaluru site fostered expertise in various product areas and became a vital element of our global R&D organisation. By moving to a larger, more modern facility, the center will not only enhance our development efforts, but also means product innovation in one area can be easily transferred across our whole business.”

Lauri Kivinen, head of corporate affairs at Nokia Siemens Networks, said: “India has witnessed a remarkable journey and is today the world’s fastest growing wireless market. The new facility is in line with our commitment to invest in India and brings us closer to our customers in this region.”
