Intel has axed 300 employees at its Danish factory after announcing that it will cease development of its own brand of switches and routers.
The processor giant said the move was part of a shift to focus more on its chip business, but acknowledged that the cuts were also part of a drive to shed 5000 jobs this year.
"We're no longer going to invest in new switching and router systems. We will continue to support existing customers and ship existing product for a period of time," said a spokesman.
The Danish research and development operation was created by the acquisitions of Case Technologies, Olicom and Giga A/S. Some of the company's other Scandinavian operations will be kept alive to focus on optical chip technologies.
Intel laid off 600 workers from its online services division a few months ago.
