Xylan may set up design centre in IndiaThe $220 million Xylan Corporation, provider of high-bandwidth switching systems for end-users and carriers, is planning to set up a design centre in India.
However, it has been reported by a section of the press that the California based transnational has firm plans to set up the design centre in the country and the most likely location would be Bangalore.
Senior officials of the corporation are expected to be in India by mid-October to finalise the investment plans and the kind of the design work that is to be carried out in their Indian centre.
Xylan is one of the leaders in the complete transformation of computer networking to switched, high-speed connections, and is in the process of providing switches that can replace hubs and routers.
The Indian centre is likely to be involved in designing chips and advanced architecture that will be helpful in developing products aiding in any-to-any translation, integrating LAN switching, asynchronous transfer mode switching (ATM), layer-three switching and wide-area switching over a wide range of interfaces and media.
The Internetworking major's flagship products include the OmniSwitch and PizzaSwitch.
OmniSwitch offers a flexible switching platform and combines an innovative hardware architecture that serves as a basic network building block.
Complementing this is a PizzaSwitch, which offers a family of mid-range LAN switching products. It switches locally among Ethernet segments and devices and links them at high speed to servers and backbones using fast Ethernet and ATM.
For the second quarter ended June 30 1998, Xylan Corporation reported a revenue of $159 million compared with $93.1 million for the same period during 1997, indicating an increase of 71 per cent.
For the year ended December 31, 1997 Xylan reported a revenue of $210.8 million up from $128.5 million for December 31, 1996.
