Redback Expands R&D in Vancouver B.C.

Redback Networks, an Ericsson company, will double the size of the company's research and development campus in Burnaby, a suburb of Vancouver, British Columbia. The expanded facility can accommodate up to 350 employees. In 2008, Redback is planning to hire up to 60 additional engineering employees in Vancouver. Redback's Vancouver campus is responsible for the development of NetOp policy and management software used by the company's SmartEdge family of network routing products. Redback also has software and hardware development projects for SmartEdge and SMS in Vancouver.

The Vancouver expansion comes on the heels of Redback's San Jose campus expansion in December 2007, as well as Ericsson's creation of a new Product Area Packet Networks unit based in Silicon Valley. The new product area was created to help Ericsson address a $14.2 billion router market in fixed and mobile broadband infrastructure.http://www.redback.com
