Entertainment and communications technology firm ARRIS international plc today said it has opened its largest R&D and operations centre outside the US, here.
The centre promotes collaboration, efficient development of advanced broadband and video solutions for the next generation of services including, gigabit broadband, 4K TV and Wi-Fi, a company statement said.
The state-of-the-art facility hosts a combination of engineers from two former ARRIS and Pace sites following ARRIS’s January 2016 acquisition of Pace, it said.
“Our Bengaluru facility is at the centre of ARRIS’s global initiative to innovate and scale up the technology that will transform how people around the world watch videos and connect with the Internet,” its Executive Chairman and Chairman of the Board of Directors Bob Stanzione said.
Stating that the new “multi-million dollar” centre represents a strategic investment in high-value IP creation, the company said with cutting-edge lab infrastructure, advanced test facilities and 24×7 support for installation activities at customer premises globally, it provides leading design, development, and quality assurance programmes across the vast majority of ARRIS global solutions.
“The Bengaluru R&D centre represents ARRIS’s commitment to the region, to collaboration across our talented engineering teams and to our global customers.
“Together, we’re positioning ARRIS and its customers for the next stage of growth,” ARRIS Country Head and VP Engineering Kiran Gadi said.
