CHENNIA, India -- India is one of the fastest growing telecom markets in the world. With a remarkable GSM footprint, a rapidly growing 3G market and the expected rollout of TD-LTE, there is strong demand for telecom equipment. To help meet this demand, India’s largest international telecom infrastructure manufacturer, Nokia Siemens Networks, is expanding its Chennai (Oragadam) manufacturing facility from 35,000 to 55,000 square meters, and increasing the number of product lines to 33.

The expansion will significantly increase existing manufacturing capacity, allowing Nokia Siemens Networks to export approximately 37% of the facility’s production across the Asia Pacific. It will also enable the company to manufacture and distribute new multiradio and LTE products, among other equipment such as GSM and LTE-ready 3G base stations and its FlexiPacket radio. The manufacturing facility will offer energy-efficient equipment to reduce the carbon footprint of new network deployments. It has already started the production of innovative Flexi Multiradio Antenna System, which forms part of Nokia Siemens Networks’ Liquid Radio architecture.
