Cisco a cumparat Scientific-Atlanta:
Cisco Systems is to acquire the set-top box and network technology provider Scientific-Atlanta in a deal that values the company at $6.9 billion. The transaction, which has already been approved by the boards of both companies, is expected to complete in the third quarter of Cisco’s 2006 financial year. “Video is emerging as the key strategic application in the service provider triple play bundle of consumer entertainment, communication and online services,” said John Chambers, president and chief executive officer of Cisco Systems. Scientific-Atlanta will form a part of Cisco’s Routing and Service Provider Technology Group. Formed in 1951, Scientific-Atlanta went public eight years later.

Suna foarte interesant aceasta veste, oare de acum incolo canalele codate in PowerVu o sa aiba boxe-uri Cisco ? Sau vom vedea o noua atitudine din partea noilor proprietari referitor la sistemul de codare PowerVu ? Astept si reactiile voastre...

Toate cele bune!
