China’s leading telecom gear maker Huawei has set up its biggest global service centre in Bengaluru at an investment of `136 crore.
The centre will support Huawei’s domestic and international telecom carrier customers in 30-plus markets across Asia, Africa and Middle East, handling more than 50 projects across these markets. “Some 1,000-odd techies, comprising engineers and network operations specialists, at GSC (global service centre) will deliver the gamut of network monitoring management related services to clients in India and overseas markets,“ Huawei India CEO Jay Chen said on Friday .
The centre, he said, supports Huawei’s `Make in India vision’ by “harnessing local talent coupled with the infusion of hi-tech R&D expertise“.
Huawei’s India GSC will offer combined services of a global network operations centre (GNOC), network integration services, network planning and optimisation, and IT integration services.
Telecom minister Manoj Sinha, who inaugurated the facility, said, “Huawei’s GSC demonstrates how India with its vast technologically skilled manpower can help address the requirements of the global market.“ He said the centre will also strengthen the domestic industry ecosystem.
The GSC is located in the same complex that houses Huawei India’s R&D centre where some 3,000-odd techies are involved in software development coding and associated R&D work.
