Swedish telecomms equipment supplier, Ericsson is to sell the world's first Internet backbone router, which was developed by a Silicon Valley start up.
The M40 router was developed by Juniper Networks, and Ericsson has just increased an undisclosed minority equity stake in the firm and taken a seat on its board.
Juniper Networks was originally funded by Lucent, Nortel and 3Com, but it claims the M40 performs at the same speeds as traditional switches with software based routing features.
It runs at 40 million packets per second, and is one of the gigabit routers currently being tested by BT at its Martlesham research lab.
