Cisco Systems Inc. (Nasdaq: CSCO) has stumped up $16 million to acquire Indian network management specialist Jahi Networks.

Although that amount of cash is barely a sneeze in the handkerchief for Cisco, it’s worth noting that Jahi only has 20 employees. This means that the deal is worth $800,000 per Jahi staff member.

The smallish vendor, which is based in Hyderabad, India, and San Jose, Calif., specializes in network management appliances. Founded in 2003, Jahi has been marketing its technology as a means to integrate different network products and support security policies.

In addition to Jahi’s technology capital, Cisco also gets a toe-hold in the potentially lucrative Indian market.

This is probably the 4th company in recent times.
Any idea what is their specialty.

re: Cisco Jumps on Jahi
These folks must have been in real stealth mode - being in India I haven't a clue about exactly what they make? I mean network appliances as in software, chips, systems. What?

16 million could be good or bad or anywhere in between. No pointers on their website to the extent of funding. Anyone knows?

Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.

During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.

She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
