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.

“Victoria continues to attract global tech leaders, strengthening our reputation as a centre of excellence and helping us grow the jobs and industries of our future economy,” Victorian Minister for Trade and Investment Philip Dalidakis said.

“Technology, science and research are at the heart of our vision to create jobs and drive economic growth for all Victorians.”

Victoria’s digital economy generates approximately $34 billion in revenue annually and employs over 83,000 people, with major tech leaders including Alibaba, Square, Live Tiles, CyberGym and Slack having all recently established headquarters in the state.
