Tarana Wireless, the US-based fixed wireless access solutions provider, has opened a new office in the Indian city of Pune, as it looks to expand in the country.

The office is in the Baner central business district of Pune, the most populous area of the state of Maharashtra. Tarana says it aims to employ 200 software engineers within two years at the site.

The company also says that it intends to invest $40m in India over the next few years to enhance its research and development operations in the country, further increasing the numbers of people it employs.

Tarana has employees in the US, India, Mexico, Malaysia and South Africa, and serves customers in those countries, as well as having active customers in ten countries including the UK, Australia and Brazil. The company says that more than 200 global internet service providers have used its G1 platform since it was launched in 2021.

Pune is traditionally known as one of India’s key manufacturing hubs but has been increasingly attracting investment from foreign tech companies. Under Prime Minister Narendra Modi, India has been keen to promote itself to tech investors as an attractive destination for tech investment.   

In March 2023, US-based Cowbell Cyber, which provides cyber insurance for small and medium-sized enterprises, opened a new technology centre in Pune.
