Nokia Siemens Networks has expanded its Indian development center in Bengaluru.  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. Engineers at this center develop, test and deliver software to support the world’s telecoms networks. The center also hosts experts in pre-sales, product management, program management, and technical support, as well as process and quality-assurance activities.

Speaking at the occasion, Johann Haslinger, head of Nokia Siemens Networks Development Center, Bengaluru said "For many years, our previous Bengaluru site fostered expertise in various product areas and became a vital element of our global R&D organization. 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".  

Nokia Siemens Networks’ previous development center 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.
