8:00 AM -- Cisco announced it is buying Navini Networks this morning. Congrats to Unstrung Site Editor Dan Jones and his team for breaking this story back on October 15.
On this page, Cisco's Tony Bates explains the company's 2004 stance reversal by simply stating that the vendor listens to its customers and observes the market. Bates added:
As part of Cisco's normal due diligence in acquiring a company, we carefully evaluated a number of possibilities before selecting Navini Networks. We believed that Navini Networks best met our key requirements for successful acquisitions.

Editor-in-Chief, Light Reading
Phil Harvey has been a Light Reading writer and editor for more than 18 years combined. He began his second tour as the site's chief editor in April 2020.
His interest in speed and scale means he often covers optical networking and the foundational technologies powering the modern Internet.
Harvey covered networking, Internet infrastructure and dot-com mania in the late 90s for Silicon Valley magazines like UPSIDE and Red Herring before joining Light Reading (for the first time) in late 2000.
After moving to the Republic of Texas, Harvey spent eight years as a contributing tech writer for D CEO magazine, producing columns about tech advances in everything from supercomputing to cellphone recycling.
Harvey is an avid photographer and camera collector – if you accept that compulsive shopping and "collecting" are the same.
