"In early 2001, AYR Networks formed a team of software developers experienced in networking protocols, device drivers, high-end routing platforms, and porting of applications and tools from the open source community.

Focusing first on the Cisco 7600 platform, AYR engineers ported Linux to its central switch processor, route processor, high speed WAN line cards, and distributed switching LAN line cards.

AYR then ported or developed routing protocols, a command line interface, ASIC control daemons, line card managers, flash drivers and filesystems, network drivers, and several more subsystems needed to make a complete ISP-ready high-end router."
