Nokia Siemens Networks (NSN) has shifted to a new, expanded development centre in Bengaluru which was inaugurated at the hands of the Finnish premier, Matti Vanhanen. The new facility is equipped with state-of-the-art R&D facilities, telepresence to enable strong interaction with the company's other global development sites, and hosts one of the company's three remote testing laboratories.

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

Engineers at the site will develop, test and deliver software to support the world's telecoms networks. The centre also hosts experts in pre-sales, product management, programme management, and technical support, as well as process and quality-assurance activities.

Speaking at the occasion, Lauri Kivinen, head of corporate affairs, NSN 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."

NSN's previous development centre in Bengaluru started operations in 1994. With the opening of this new facility, the Bengaluru site is now one of the company's largest. It currently has a workforce of approximately 2,300 with space to expand to 3,000, depending on demand.
