British Telecommunications (BT) has announced the opening of a new global development centre (GDC) in Bangalore, India.

The new centre is designed to enhance BT’s ability to design and deliver “world class service to its customers and support its expansion in high growth regions.”

According to the communications solutions and services provider, the Bangalore GDC will hire up to 600 software development engineers over the next 18 months, said BT.

The new facility joins BT’s global network of development centres in Ipswich (Adastral Park), Belfast, Cardiff and Glasgow in the UK and Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia. These centres are operated by BT TSO, the Technology, Service & Operations organisation supporting all of BT Group’s lines of business.

The company said the collaboration technology will enable the Bangalore team to work closely with service design colleagues in the UK on the development, upgrades, migration and architecting of IT services.

BT Group’s CEO Ian Livingston said “We are confident that our new Bangalore facility will attract some of India’s best talent, to the benefit of our customers all over the world. India has become a hotbed of innovation and a rapidly growing market for sophisticated networked IT services in its own right. This is clearly an opportunity we will continue to build on.”
