Siemens hands 3G apps development to India
Siemens is giving its research and development centre in Bangalore global responsibility for developing applications, such as location-based services and multimedia messaging, to run over new third-generation networks.
One hundred additional Indian engineers will join Siemens' 400-member team of software developers to develop 3G applications based on WCDMA (Wideband Code Division Multiple Access) technology.
Siemens also employs some 700 engineers at its development centre in Milan, which is primarily responsible for 3G-network hardware and software development.
