Cisco netwerk overnames

Insieme is the skunkworks venture Cisco backed group they use for some new tech.   These guys operate outside Cisco and develop Product to eventually be bought / acquired.


Nx9k is the latest example.   I’m told the original catalyst and cat5k were similar.

No, the Catalysts were external acquisitions. Low end stuff like the 1900 came from Grand Junction, the 3K was Kalpana, and the 5K & 6K Crescendo.
