D-Link India signs MoU to help develop local IT industry

In a bid to further drive forward its presence in India, global networking giant D-Link recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Telangana government to bolster the local IT industry by improving network infrastructure, investing in the region, and developing new talent.

As part of the collaboration, D-Link is working together with the state government to establish public Internet access by deploying Wi-Fi hotspots that provides wireless access to all citizens and institutions. Meanwhile, the company also plans to upgrade government networking infrastructure to meet the latest security standards, reducing the risk of vulnerabilities and cyber-attacks.

“D-Link entered the Indian market in 1990, and consequently we were listed on the NSE in 2001. Today, we have over 80 distribution channels and more than 2,000 sales partners in India,” D-Link CEO Douglas Hsiao said.

“India’s potential as an emerging market is immense, and Hyderabad is quickly becoming a major tech hub. By supporting its growth and fostering talent, we believe we can open up new opportunities for both India and D-Link, creating a win-win situation.”

Furthermore, D-Link added that it will increase investment in the area by expanding the Hyderabad offices, including the establishment of a global R&D center and a network training center. Through this academy, the networking firm is looking to grow local talent and create jobs through education, recruitment, and training of local personnel.
