Networking major Cisco Systems Inc announced a major market expansion
plan for India. This includes opening a Global Engineering
Development/R&D center in Bangalore and consequently increasing staff
headcount by over 250 percent in the next 12 to 18 months. Cisco is also
converting the company’s representative office in India into a wholly
owned subsidiary-Cisco Systems India Pvt Ltd. The entire plan will involve
investments of over $20 million.

“The Internet market in India is developing very rapidly and we have
been extremely impressed with the rate of growth that the market has seen
in the last several quarters. We are making these investments because
Cisco believes that the market will continue to expand dramatically as the
telecommunications and ISP markets are deregulated,” said Todd
Abbott, Managing Director (Asia), Cisco Systems.

The development center in Bangalore, the first such center in Asia, will
be involved in development and testing of Cisco IOS and network management
software, ASICs and other technologies like ATM and VOIP.
