Niometrics to open R&D hub in Melbourne
Global networks analytics company Niometrics has announced plans to establish its latest R&D hub as well as its Australia-New Zealand headquarters in Melbourne.
The new hub will develop, test and deploy key network and data analytics technologies. It is expected to create at least 30 new jobs, including positions for high-performance DPI engineers, C programmers, UX developers and data scientists.
The facility will be Niometrics’ third major R&D hub after facilities in Singapore and Athens. It is expected to be operational by the end of November.
Niometrics currently has eight offices around the world serving 12 network operators in countries including Australia, Singapore, Hong Kong, Indonesia, the Philippines and the UAE.
