The announcement continues a trend towards expansion in India that, during 2007, has also seen office expansions at Delhi (Noida NCR) and Mumbai, and the opening of new offices in Bangalore and Hyderabad. The Noida facility will showcase the company's 'immersive telepresence solution', the Polycom RPX (Real Presence Experience).
Looking forward, six further office locations are planned for 2008. These will serve India's top ten metropolitan and regional business hubs, and provide support to the company's growing roster of established sales and distribution channels in the country.
Sunil Bhalla, vice-president and general manager of Polycom's Voice Communications Solutions division, told II: "We are committed to building best-in-class business operations to meet the needs of our growing global customer base. India is a rapidly advancing market for communications services and products, and therefore presents tremendous growth opportunities for Polycom. We are delighted that we can invest in R&D and sales and marketing capabilities in this region, and offer opportunities for local talent to propel their careers at Polycom, the leader in unified communications and collaboration solutions."
