Nokia Siemens Networks has opened a Global Network Solutions Center, GNSC, in Delhi, India in response to growing demand from operators to outsource network management and maintenance.
The new center will serve as the company’s global services hub and is an addition to existing GNSCs in Lisbon, Portugal and Chennai, India.
The company said India is one of the world’s fastest growing mobile markets and the creation of a central hub at the Noida facility is part of its strategy to develop its network of centers to strengthen its presence in emerging and developing markets.
In 2007 the company announced a three-year $100m investment plan for India, and last year set up a development center in Bangalore and a manufacturing plant in Chennai.
Rajeev Suri, head of services at NSN, said: We are pioneering what we truly feel is a unique, centralized, global delivery model through our integrated, multi-technology, multi vendor central delivery hubs – what we call the GNSCs – which provide global scale and drive the world’s most efficient networks. This new, innovative approach is being recognized as an alternative strategy to the existing fragmented model which comprises multiple services or technology-specific delivery centers across regions.
