Today the focus of the Silicon Valley Innovation Center (SVIC), located in Mountain View - California, is on early stage product development. In the future this will be extended with the ability to a product development and technology transfer model in which SVIC develop more complete and robust solutions for Telekom. The strategy is to take maximum advantage of open source and relevant start-ups intellectual capital and development in order to avoid expensive duplication of what already exists.
The goal is to extend and support specific Telekom needs and leverage open source software to accelerate development and reduce scope and risks.
SVIC focuses on four strategies to achieve these goals:
Development, integration, Incubation and Enabling technologies which can and will be used in combinations to support the technical charter in advanced networking, media, mobile and cloud, and the development to support Telekom’s business and subscriber needs.
