Tech Mahindra launches new Innovation Lab
Lab, based in Washington is designed to allow testing, development of mobile devices, apps
Network and software solutions provider for the telecommunication industry, Tech Mahindra has announced the opening of its new Mobile Innovation Lab in Bellevue, Washington state.
The new lab will allow for testing and development of next generation mobile devices, apps and test automation tools for the global mobile market. The new lab will work closely with Tech Mahindra's Mobile Innovation Centre in Toronto.
"The inauguration of the Bellevue lab represents Tech Mahindra's commitment to its customers and partners and will accelerate growth in the global mobile market," said Manish Vyas, VP North Americas, Tech Mahindra. "The Bellevue Lab along with our other Mobile Innovation Centre in Toronto will enable Tech Mahindra to continue developing new services and technology solutions to help further enhancing the end-user experience."
The new Mobile Innovations Lab is also expected to help address the huge potential for strategic and effective mobile apps in the Middle East market. With the number of mobile subscriptions in the Middle East and Africa expected to reach almost 1.26 billion by the end of 2015, up from 951 million by the end of 2011, according to Tech Mahindra, the region is a booming market for mobile devices and apps.
The average mobile penetration rate across the region is over 85%, according to Tech Mahindra and operators are using applications and content to attract potential customers and compensate for the lost voice revenue. As a result, developers are now looking to create more Arabic based apps.
The Bellevue lab will enable Tech Mahindra to further expand its suite of advanced testing services to include device management, messaging, WAP browser compliance, and network validation on a mobile operator's live network.
