BANGALORE: Nortel today announced the setting up of Nortel Technology Excellence Centre (NTEC) in Bangalore, which will focus on new product design, development and testing to deliver cost benefits to customers worldwide.

The total investment for the setting up of the center was not disclosed.

The 35,000 square foot NTEC is expected to employ 100 engineers by the end of 2006. The new center will focus on ethernet switching, advanced routers, security and VoIP technologies.

KC Venugopal, founding member of Tasman Networks, a router company that was acquired by Nortel in February 2006, will head NTEC. The center will initially house Tasman’s original secure router R&D team, based in Bangalore.

The center will cater to the needs of the Asian region. Nortel has eleven R&D centers in the world and Bangalore will be twelfth.

Ravi Chauhan, managing director, Nortel India, said, “This new R&D facility will complement our current enterprise infrastructure portfolio by incorporating feedback from customers to enhance our networks that support critical real time applications, including voice, video and streaming multimedia.”

To enhance its competitiveness in the India and global markets, Nortel has developed strong working relationships with large software houses such as Infosys, Wipro, Tata Consultancy Services and Sasken technologies. The company has 400 customers in India.
