CAMBRIDGE, U.K. -- UK-based picocell and femtocell developer and manufacturer, ip.access (www.ipaccess.com), today confirmed it has secured a dedicated R&D centre in India in partnership with worldwide business services company, Quickstart Global.

Based at the Quickstart Global centre in Pune, the ip.access facility will initially number some 10-15 staff but is expected to grow to 40 dedicated R&D engineers by the end of this year.

Announcing the move, ip.access Chief Operating Officer, Philip Rimell said: “We see this new Pune centre as a great opportunity to extend our product development capability in order to best serve the needs of our customers and the market worldwide.

“This will be a focused development centre, leveraging the wealth of engineering talent that is available in India and complementing the work of our long-standing Indian partners, Aricent and Sasken.”

Securing a dedicated R&D resource in India is the second piece of good news for ip.access in the region. Earlier this month the company announced it has won a contract with leading Indian operator Bharti Airtel to supply its nanoGSM picocells for deployment across the country.
