Cisco Systems to Purchase Procket Networks...

"SAN JOSE, Calif., June 17, 2004 - Cisco Systems, Inc., today announced a definitive agreement to purchase the intellectual property, a majority of the engineering team and select assets from privately-held Procket Networks, Inc. of Milpitas, Calif. Procket Networks is a developer of concurrent services routers and has expertise in silicon and software development. This purchase will add a rich intellectual property portfolio and a team of proven silicon and software architects to Cisco's industry leading routing technology and products."



So does this mean that Tony Li now works for Mr. Chambers again? :slight_smile:

I believe Tony left the company in March.

Last I heard, he was at Verio.

I believe that Tony has escaped that fate... (although the phrasing of the
press release could lead one to believe that the engineering team aren't
really people, but some form of property that was "sold" to Cisco :wink:

Correct, I'm currently with Verio, playing ISP.

Yes, I believe that this confirms that John thinks that engineers are indeed
slaves. But I've known that for years.

Please disregard the "rock star" crapola. More hype that I don't want...
I'm just an engineer, like you, but slightly older and more bruised.
