Tech Mahindra Inaugurates Innovation Center for Mobility Solutions in Toronto
Innovation center enables certification of mobility solutions and devices for Canada
Toronto, June 1, 2011: Tech Mahindra, a global systems integrator and business transformation consulting services firm exclusively focused on the communications industry, announced the inauguration of its Innovation Center for Mobility Solutions in Toronto at the 2011 Canadian Telecom Summit. The Toronto Innovation Center will initially provide device certification services to Canadian wireless operators and further expand its services to provide enterprise mobility solutions on current and next generation mobile devices for the benefit of North American customers in general and Canadian carriers specifically.
Tech Mahindra made this investment in Toronto after its selection by leading Canadian telecommunications providers for certification services of mobile devices. This Toronto Innovation Center will enable Tech Mahindra, through its dedicated subsidiary for mobile applications, CanvasM Technologies, to offer mobile device certification services in a variety of areas including Application Testing, Field Testing, Inter-operability Testing and Performance Testing with expertise in 3G/HSPA+/LTE. Tech Mahindra has already invested in similar Innovation Labs for Mobility Solutions in Seattle (USA) and New Delhi (India). The Innovation Labs in New Delhi provides RF/Protocol Testing and Audio Testing services for 3G/LTE devices deployed at many global telecommunications companies. Tech Mahindra continues to provide mobile device and application certification services to several North American telecommunications providers and device manufacturers.
Jagdish Mitra, Vice President, Enterprise Mobility & VAS Practice, Tech Mahindra, stated “We are pleased to launch the Toronto Innovation Center to serve North American and primarily Canadian operators, and their OEM suppliers. The Toronto Innovation Center, along with our Innovation Labs and Ideation Factory in Seattle and New Delhi, will enable Tech Mahindra to continue to pioneer new services and technology solutions for the growing mobile market and enhance the customer experience. It will also enable our customers to mobilize their business applications to better address their customer needs in the future. We are delighted to be selected by leading telecommunications services providers for their Devices Certification Program and we look forward to expanding our operations to support other players in the mobility ecosystem in Canada and throughout North America.”
Individual consumers and business customers are increasingly demanding creative mobility solutions, value added services and applications on an ever increasing number of phones, tablets and other devices. They are driving telcos to elevate their solutions beyond the network to support both lifestyle services and critical business services. Leading telecommunications companies partner with Tech Mahindra to own the certification of the growing number of wireless devices they are bringing to current and future networks for customers.
