The 3G race started off with a bang, and it’s about time. It seems like the first one to start manufacturing 3G mobile communications infrastructure is Nokia Siemens Networks, at their Chennai facility. They’re the first in the country to manufacture 3G products locally.
“India is not just a high-growth market but also an innovation hub for us. Our manufacturing operations in India reflect our unwavering focus on the country and enhance our proximity to our customers,” said Urs Pennanen, head of the India region at Nokia Siemens Networks. “With 3G licenses underway and the country taking huge strides in telecommunications, operators require a local manufacturing partner. This is definitely the right time and place to begin 3G manufacturing for India.”
