Cisco Invests $12 Million in Japanese R&D Center

Cisco Systems will open an R&D center in Tokyo, Japan, focused on advanced IPv6, multicast, and wireless, in addition to improving existing security and QoS technologies. The Tokyo R&D center will initially employ 10 engineers.

  • Earlier this month, Fujitsu Limited and Cisco Systems announced a strategic alliance focusing on routers and switches for the Japanese markets. Specifically, the companies agreed to jointly develop high-end routers and will collaborate on development of Cisco's IOS-XR operating system for multi-terabit routers. This is the first time Cisco has joined with another communications equipment manufacturer in router operating system development. Fujitsu will offer Fujitsu and Cisco co-branded routing products running IOS-XR to telecommunications service providers in Japan.
