Motorola Inc, a global leader in integrated communications, on Wednesday announced the opening of two new research and design centres in Bangalore and Taipei.
The two centres would focus on developing optimal solutions for seamless mobility in telecom switching, embedded communications, broadband and ultra wide band wireless solutions, the company said in a statement.
It said the new R&D centre in Bangalore brings under one roof the research and development capabilities of Motorola's core networks division and embedded communications computing, both part of Motorola Networks.
The centre's focus would be to work on new telecom switching technologies and products across CDMA and GSM/UMTS networks, as well as developing products for a new class of computer -- the communications server.
"By maximising the benefits of open standards, these communications servers will enable equipment manufacturers to deliver new products and services to market faster, accelerating the seamless mobility environment," it said.
It said 'encompassing over 117,000 square feet, the centre is the second largest Motorola R&D facility in India.'
Simon Leung, regional president of Motorola Asia Pacific, said: "This new R&D centre in Bangalore demonstrates the importance Motorola places on the Indian market. Our goal is to remain at the forefront of developing multi-media solutions that seamlessly combine voice, data, and video."
Motorola's first R&D facility was launched in 1991 in Bangalore. Hyderabad is the location of two additional R&D sites for embedded communications computing and global software group, it was noted.
