Nokia Siemens Networks announced it will significantly increase its Chengdu R&D capabilities by the end of 2008, aiming to make it one of the biggest R&D centers of the company worldwide.

The expanded facility will be a key global development center for applications development and also meet the needs of business customers and local partners in the telecommunications industry across China. The expansion will include more R&D for network operation-related systems, underlining the company's commitment to improve network performance for its customers.

The move is part of Nokia Siemens' strategy to capture business opportunities and market share in emerging markets as demand rises for fixed and mobile infrastructure products, services and solutions. Nokia Siemens is focusing on China and other emerging markets, which are the key drivers of future growth that will push the connected community to five billion people globally by 2015.

Nokia Siemens CEO Simon Beresford-Wylie said, "China is one of the most dynamic telecommunications markets in the world, with continued fast growth and strong demand for advanced services. We will continue to act decisively to remain competitive in high growth markets like China. Our end-to-end converged product portfolio means we are perfectly positioned for long-term sustained growth in the telecommunications industry."

The Chengdu R&D Center was established in August 2005 to play a major role in 3G and IP-based multimedia systems development.
