Mumbai: Wipro Technologies, the global technology services division of Wipro Limited (NYSE:WIT) and the first PCMM Level 5 and SEI CMM Level 5 certified IT Services Company globally has launched its Series 60 Competence Centre agreement with Nokia. Wipro will provide smart phone development and integration services for handset manufacturers that have the licensed Series 60 Platform.

Series 60 is currently one of the leading smart phone platforms in the world. It is licensed by mobile phone manufacturers including Siemens, Samsung, Panasonic, and Nokia. The success of the platform amongst the licensees ensures a large Series 60 device base and a diverse product portfolio.

As a Series 60 Competence Centre provider, Wipro will offer software development, backed by its understanding of the requirements for end-to-end Series 60 Platform software and hardware integration. If required, Wipro will manage an entire Series 60 Platform integration project.

Speaking on the occasion, Dr. Rao, President of Telecom & Inter-Networking Solutions Division, Wipro Technologies said, “We look forward to building on our strong relationship with Nokia and being part of a leading-edge company and the development of its future mobile technologies. Wipro’s extensive resources, experience and unique quality processes will help successful projects arrive on time and budget.”

“We are delighted to have a new, such a highly respected member joining the Series 60 Product Creation Community. Competence Centres, such as Wipro, are companies that have already a proven track record in the industry. They benefit the licensees with reduced time-to-market when developing smart phones based on Series 60.

Wipro will extend the scale and scope of the Community''s offering significantly”, said Jukka Riivari, Director, Terminal Platform Sales, Nokia.

Nokia introduced the Series 60 Product Creation Community a year ago at 3GSM World Congress in Cannes. The Competence Centres in the community are companies that are equipped with proficient and knowledgeable resources and understand requirements for end-to-end software and hardware integration on time and budget.
