Cisco to buy Cognio for wireless network management

Cognio software reduces sources of radio frequency interference

Cisco Systems today announced an agreement to buy Cognio, a maker of software for wireless network spectrum analysis and management. Financial details were not disclosed.

Cognio provides software designed to enhance performance, reliability and security of wireless networks by detecting and reducing sources of radio frequency interference.

In a statement, Cisco said the acquisition would give it access to technology and intellectual property that would complement its existing product lines and help differentiate its offerings from those of its competitors. The networking vendor also said that Cognio's developers would help expand its line of wireless networking products.

Wireless networking is one of six newer technologies that Cisco refers to as a "Cisco Advanced Technology," which is expected to grow in coming years.

The Cognio deal is expected to close in the first quarter of 2008. It would be Cisco's 122nd acquisition, but its first in fiscal 2008.
