    Munich (ots Ad hoc-Service) -    

    Kontron Embedded Computers AG in Eching near Munich, one of the world's leading manufacturers of "intelligent" miniaturised computers with integrated software (embedded computer technology), has once more substantially raised its turnover forecasts for the year 2000 by more than 10 per cent. The reason for this expected increase in turnover from DM 162 m (1999: DM 98.22 m) as planned originally to now approximately DM 180 m lies in the close business ties with Juniper Networks Inc. (Mountain View, California), one of the leading suppliers of Internet data routers. The fastest router in the world, which Juniper presented only recently and which is based on a MXS 500 MHz CompactPCI board made by Kontron, is four times faster than conventional products made by competitors. The M160 router has a processing capacity of 160 million information bundles per second, which is equal to approximately 4 million simultaneous telephone calls. "Due to the overwhelming success of this new product, for which we supply a core component, Kontron expects turnover in the year 2000, which was originally planned to reach DM 162 m, to increase by significantly more than 10 per cent, thus climbing to around DM 180m", said Hannes Niederhauser, the managing director of Kontron. Since 6th April 2000 Kontron Embedded Computers AG has been listed on the Neuer Markt of the Frankfurt stock exchange.
