Service providers boost Foundry's earnings

Ethernet equipment vendor Foundry Networks posted a strong fourth quarter marked by an 84% increase in profit to $28.9 million and a 28% increase in revenue to $168.7 million. The growth was largely fueled by increasing sales to service providers, a market segment the company said now accounts for 26% of its revenue.

Will recent switch announcements from Cisco and Juniper have any effect on Foundry's fortunes going forward?
