AireSpace may go to Cisco


AireSpace is the new IT girl of the WLAN Switch business. Every one wants a piece of this hot little company, which is ranked #3 in the WLAN switch business behind Cisco Systems and Symbol Technologies. UnStrung is reporting that Cisco is going to buy the company for between $400-and-$425 million. C/Net had reported that there were talks between the two companies. Glenn makes a good point, when he says, “Cisco did not have an internal WLAN switch strategy, and has its biggest problems in dealing with issues that switches can solve.”
