Apple and Cisco Nearing Settlement; Interoperability Likely?

So reports WSJ, after earlier reports about extension in negotiation deadlines following an earlier lawsuit: Apple’s new deadline to respond to the Cisco lawsuit is Thursday. While both sides could agree to extend the deadline again, Cisco and Apple are signaling an eagerness to put the fight behind them soon.
Cisco executives in the past have said they aren’t after money from Apple, but rather want Apple to agree to make its products “interoperate” — or be compatible — with Cisco products. Both sides say interoperability is one of the issues they’re discussing now.
On example cited: Interoperability with Apple products could allow the Cisco-owned Linksys devices to play, say, songs purchased through Apple’s iTunes Store.
