Ericsson IPI Expands on Centennial Campus

Ericsson Internet Protocol Infrastructure (IPI), Inc., a division of Ericsson, will move its research and development operations to North Carolina State University’s Centennial Campus and hire 45 additional employees by 2006. The relocation will move Ericsson IPI’s divisional headquarters from Rockville, Md., to Raleigh.

With a current staff of 30, the consolidation will bring the total number of Ericsson IPI employees on Centennial Campus to 100 over the next few years.

Beginning its operations on Centennial Campus in 1999, Ericsson IPI provides innovative, high-performance Internet Protocol routing solutions for operators and service provider networks.

Ericsson IPI has been an active partner on Centennial Campus, hiring a large number of interns during the last several years. Students have been hired to work on both software and hardware development projects.

The company is also a member of the Center for Advanced Computing and Communication (CACC), a membership-based industry/university cooperative research center co-located at NC State and Duke University. As a member of CACC, Ericsson collaborates with NC State researchers on projects, sponsors graduate students via co-ops and internships, and shares university research facilities.
