Ericsson, Juniper to maintain partnership despite Redback deal
Reuters is reporting that Juniper shares are falling on news that Ericsson is buying Juniper rival Redback Networks for $2.1 billion. Juniper's products had been distributed by Ericsson, which has strong relationships with phone operators worldwide.

But I just got off the phone with Bjorn Olsson, Ericsson's executive vice president and general manager, networks, who said Ericsson plans to continue to work with Juniper in two product areas: Juniper's high-capacity core router, and technology related to so-called GPRS gateways.

"Those are the two basic areas where we work with Juniper," Olsson said. He didn't, however, indicate that the relationship would go much beyond those two areas.
