CISCO SYSTEMS has selected Scotland for its first research and manufacturing facilities outside North America. The giant US Internet group is investing more than pounds 10m in a move that will create at least 160 hi-tech jobs.

Sixty staff at the research centre in Edinburgh will develop new Internet software while adapting Cisco's products for the European market. The manufacturing facility will allow Cisco to shorten delivery times to European customers.
