BANGALORE: U.S. based nascent telecom company Aylus Networks Inc today announced the launch of its global Research and Development center here to build mobility management switching solutions that would enable service providers deliver mobile broadcast TV/Video and multimedia services across multiple access networks.

The company, which commenced its operations in January this year, hoped to deploy the product early October next year, company President and CEO Mahesh Ganmukhi told newspersons here.

He said the Bangalore R&D center, which would have 25 engineers by the end of the year, would work in tandem with the center at Massachusetts in the U.S.. Aylus had raised $ 10 million from Matric Partners and North Bride venture partners for technology development. The Bangalore center would also focus on quality assurance and testing.

According to an estimate, mobile telephone availability was expected to cross three billion by 2010 and the users would be looking for more mobile content along with the current voice service. Wireless operators and cable operators were currently looking at providing TV and content over dedicated mobile TV broadcast networks and 3G networks to hand-held devices.

The worldwide market size for service providers in broadcast TV and Video over hand-held services was estimated to grow to 250 million subscribers by 2010, generating revenue of $ 27 billion. The market for mobile virtual network operators was pegged to grow to 76 million subscribers, generating $ 25 billion.
