Riverbed is a well known name in the WAN optimization market, and increasingly in the SD-WAN space as well. The company recently acquired Xirrus. It may seem like a curious move to acquire wireless assets. But Tom Hollingsworth does a great job of putting it into the perspective of Riverbed’s existing business. He sees the wireless edge as the next market for them to expand into. Given the success Riverbed has had integrating Ocedo assets into their SteelHead line, I think the company is capable of moving into a new market.

Riverbed is growing within the space, having acquired another SD-WAN company, Ocedo, a little over a year ago.

They’ve been around in the WAN optimization market for a while, and are now starting to combine the two solutions in unified devices.
By now, you’ve probably heard that Brocade was purchased by Broadcom (if you haven’t… I’m sorry to break it to you this way). But what you might not have heard is that Broadcom plans to sell off Brocade’s IP networking business. Drew Conry-Murray at Packet Pushers breaks down how this sale might go down. In […]
