Cisco To Acquire Sedonasys Systems


Cisco (Nasdaq: Csco) is to acquire Sedonasys Systems Ltd, a Ramat Gan, Israel-based platform that automatically discovers the optical and IP layers [L0-L3] of Service Provider networks.

The amount of the deal was not disclosed.

Sedona Systems provides the NetFusion™ software, which automatically discovers the Optical and IP/MPLS layers (L0-L3) of service provider networks. It uses this real-time visibility and deep analytics to optimize and automate network control.

With Sedona NetFusion joining the Cisco Crosswork portfolio, the company will deliver an advanced network automation platform for its Routed Optical Networking Solution. CSPs can gain real-time, dynamic, and control of IP and optical multi-vendor networks together. They can move from manual operations across siloed teams and technologies to an automated and assured network managed through a single solution. Cisco Crosswork and Sedona NetFusion provide a real-time replica of the entire network to predictively manage any changes to the deployment, connectivity, and activation status of all network inventory. Operators can preview optimization, assurance, and changes, and then commit them as needed. 

The deal was announced in a blog post by Kevin Wollenweber, vice president of networking for Cisco’s Mass-Scale Infrastructure Group.
