Nokia Siemens Networks has inaugurated the latest of its Global Network Solutions Centers (GNSC), located in Noida, India. The new GNSC is co located in a new dedicated services facility, and will complement the two company's two existing GNSCs in Lisbon, Portugal and Chennai, India.
At the inauguration, Simon Beresford Wylie, CEO of Nokia Siemens Networks said, "Nokia Siemens Networks is no longer just a telecom equipment vendor, but a true business operations partner for communications service providers. Our services business lies at the heart of the transformation underway at our company, and India lies at the heart of our services success."
"Both Nokia Siemens Networks' transformation and our commitment to India as a significant part of a global telecoms ecosystem are encapsulated by this new Global Network Solutions Center," Beresford-Wylie said.
"We are pioneering what we truly feel is a unique, centralized, global delivery model through our integrated, multi-technology, multi vendor central delivery hubs - what we call the GNSCs - which provide global scale and drive the world's most efficient networks," said Rajeev Suri, Head of Services, Nokia Siemens Networks. "This new, innovative approach is being recognized as an alternative strategy to the existing fragmented model which comprises multiple services or technology-specific delivery centers across regions."
This network of GNSCs is designed to help customers get to market faster through ‘round-the-clock' project management, ensure high network and service performance through transparent Service Level Agreements and improve service delivery efficiency while reducing risk. By centralizing and consolidating resources at the three GNSCs, Nokia Siemens Networks says that it will be able to deliver economies of scale to its customers and drive network efficiency through remote delivery, leveraging standardized and automated IT tools and processes.
In 2007, Nokia Siemens Networks committed to a USD100 million 3-year strategic investment in India and last year Nokia Siemens Networks opened manufacturing plant in Chennai.
