Linksys is Dead. Cisco Consumer Business Group is Born

If you read the full text of today's Cisco Network Magic 5.0 announcement, it was easy to miss the reference to the Cisco Consumer Business Group. When I asked my Linksys CBG contact about it, he confirmed that, with the NM 5.0 announcement, Linksys as a Cisco corporate entity is gone and replaced by CBG. But the Linksys name will continue on, at least for awhile.

Cisco buying Navini for WiMax goodies

Cisco today said it has a definitive agreement to purchase Navini Networks, described as "a leader in the Mobile WiMAX 802.16e-2005 broadband wireless industry".

Cisco's announcement noted Navini's "Smart Beamforming" MIMO antenna technology as one of the reasons for the acquisition. Navini also brings to the table a portfolio of broadband wireless WiMAX solutions including base stations, adaptive antenna arrays, management systems, and subscriber modems, as well as a base of 75 customers.

Under the terms of the agreement, Cisco will pay approximately $330 million in cash and assumed options. The Navini acquisition is expected to close in the second quarter of Cisco's 2008 fiscal year. Upon the close of the acquisition, Cisco plans to integrate Navini into its Wireless Networking Business Unit, under the Ethernet and Wireless Technology Group.

Cisco jumps on the draft 11n bandwagon

Cisco yesterday announced an Aironet series access point with dual 802.11n Draft 2.0 radios.

The modular Cisco Aironet 1250 Series access point has a modular design with 2.4-GHz and 5-GHz 802.11n draft 2.0 standard radio modules. Cisco says that the AP can deliver "total data rates of up to 600 Mbps". The 1250 is an addition to Cisco's Unified Wireless Network product line and can be deployed in both standalone and "unified" (lightweight AP) modes.

Linksys branding to be replaced by Cisco. No surprise here

The Uberpulse headline "Cisco kills Linksys brand, plans agressive move into consumer markets" is sure an attention getter, but comes as no surprise.

First, Chambers actually said: "It will all come over time into a Cisco brand"—which hardly amounts to an announcement that the Linksys brand has been, or will soon be, retired. And for those of us who deal regularly with the company and its products, it's really a statement of the obvious.
