NEC to set up mobile network excellence center in Chennai, India

Telecom Lead India: NEC is planning to set up an NEC
Mobile Network Excellence Center for the offshore development of mobile
communication systems in Chennai, India in April.


The NMEC will be NEC’s first mobile communication system
development center in India. The center will design and develop hardware and
software for the PASOLINK series of ultra-compact microwave communication
systems, accepted as key products for mobile backhaul in the global market.


Initially, the NMEC will be located in the NEC India
office in Chennai. The center is expected to relocate to a new office in
Chennai by the end of this year.


“NEC will recruit local talent and work closely with
Indian development partners in order to create a global development
system,” said Atsushi Noro, deputy general manager of NEC’s Mobile
Wireless Network Division.


NEC had previously decided to produce PASOLINK systems in
the Special Economic Zone near Chennai, India and will begin shipping products
from June this year. The NMEC in India enables NEC to benefit from the global
sense and development skills of local engineers, as well as further enhance its
development efficiency and time to market.


Furthermore, the center’s development and production
capabilities will enable NEC to offer competitive products to global markets.


NEC will continue to expand its global carrier network
operations by utilizing its superior wireless transmission technologies and
advanced skills to produce high-quality products.


Recently, NEC developed a smartphone software that
automatically recommends the best path for a user’s incoming calls based on the
software’s estimate of a smartphone’s movement.


This solution will be launching the software for
commercial purposes by June 2012. NEC will also showcase the new technology at
Mobile World Congress 2012 in Barcelona. NEC is also planning to develop and
provide innovative software that improves the user friendliness of smartphones
and mobile devices for a wide variety of users.
