Ericsson to Open R&D Branch in Silicon Valley

Ericsson announced plans to open a research branch in San Jose, California, in August 2008. Jan Uddenfeldt, an Ericsson Senior Vice President and Senior Technology Advisor to the CEO, will move to Silicon Valley to oversee the facility.

In February, Ericsson appointed Bert Nordberg as Chairman of the Board for Ericsson companies Redback Networks and Entrisphere. Nordberg, also based in San Jose, is responsible for accelerating the company's activities in next generation IP networks and growing their business with carriers through Ericsson.
