One may call it ‘seeing opportunities in the crisis.’ Leaving back the concerns of a tough time, Nokia Siemens Networks will open its new R&D center in Bangalore next year. The new facility will be put up at the Manyata Embassy Business Park.

Currently, the company’s Bangalore Development Center (BDC), which employs 1,600 engineers in a variety of roles, provides R&D services for operations and business support, systems integration, product documentation, and test laboratories services.

Stephan Scholz, Chief Technology Officer, Nokia Siemens Networks, said, “The drivers behind creating a global R&D presence include proximity to customers as well as availability of talent and competencies that drive innovation and productivity, and India scores high on each of these parameters.”

Nokia Siemens Networks had also invested 586 million euro on R&D globally in the third quarter of 2008. It has a network of R&D centers in China, Europe, India, and the U.S.
