Motorola has opened a new research and development facility in Hyderabad.
The new centre will house over 1,000 engineers, who will support research and development of cutting-edge software, Motorola says. The centre will have a large team of engineers developing software for an intelligent user interface for Motorola phones. They will also work on technologies such as WiMax, network management and autonomics, security and high-availability platforms.
Motorola already has software development and research labs in India, which together employ about 3,000 staff.
A number of multinational telco equipment companies are investing in India, which is adding about six million new mobile subscribers a month. Motorola set up its first R&D facility in India in Bangalore in 1991. Motorola designs and develops software in India for its entire range of products.
