Tokyo, March 26, 2012 – NEC Corporation (NEC; TSE: 6701) announced today a plan to establish an NEC Mobile Network Excellence Centre (NMEC) for the offshore development of mobile communication systems in Chennai, India in April this year.
The NMEC is the first mobile communication system development centre that the NEC Group will establish in India. The centre will design and develop hardware and software for the PASOLINK series of ultra-compact microwave communication systems, widely accepted as key products for mobile backhaul in the global market. Initially, the NMEC will be located in the NEC India office in Chennai. The centre is expected to relocate to a new office in Chennai by the end of this year.
“NEC will recruit local talent and work closely with Indian development partners in order to create a global development system,” said Atsushi Noro, deputy general manager of NEC’s Mobile Wireless Network Division. “NEC had previously decided to produce PASOLINK systems in the Special Economic Zone near Chennai, India and will begin shipping products from June this year. The establishment of the NMEC in India, one of the world’s largest markets, allows NEC to benefit from the global sense and development skills of local engineers, as well as further enhance its development efficiency and time to market. Furthermore, the centre’s development and production capabilities will enable NEC to offer competitive products to global markets.”
Looking forward, NEC will continue to expand its global carrier network operations by utilising its superior wireless transmission technologies and advanced skills to produce high-quality products.
