The massive 390-acre (157.8 hectares) complex consists of 128 buildings and supports over 32,000 employees. Among the core functions of the facility is research and development for mobile devices and appliances. Outside of work, the Digital City also provides employees with free meals, complementary healthcare, sports facilities, club rooms for interest groups and childcare services.
