NEW DELHI -- Nokia announced today that it plans to open a Global Networks Operation Center in India by the end of the year, underscoring its commitment to one of the world's fastest-growing telecommunications markets. The center will perform network operation tasks primarily for selected operators in the Asia Pacific region as well as Europe, the Middle East and Africa as part of Nokia's managed services offering. The location of the site, which will initially employ up to 100 people, will be unveiled at a later date.

The announcement was made by Simon Beresford-Wylie, Executive Vice President and General Manager, Networks, at Nokia's Focus on India investor event in New Delhi. It is the latest investment by Nokia in the vibrant Indian market, continuing a decade-long relationship that started with the first-ever cellular call in India, which was made on a Nokia mobile phone and a Nokia-deployed network.

"Given Nokia's strong commitment to its expanding services business, plus the positive experience it has enjoyed in India as both a growth and services market, the decision to locate the operation center in India was an easy one to make," Simon Beresford-Wylie says.

"The Networks Operation Center is a firm step towards further enhancing our global reach to better serve our customers. We are aligning with their needs to keep costs in check and improve the services they provide in an ever-tougher market," adds Bosco Novak, Senior Vice President for Services, Networks, Nokia.
