Cisco will enter the push technology arena this June, shipping network hardware pre-loaded with Tibco software.
Tibco has a huge user base among financial institutions which employ its IP multicasting technology to send market data to thousands of clients from a central source.
Cisco has not yet released a name for the new product, but Tibco said the company's routers will ship with its Rendezvous multicast push software pre-loaded.
According to market analyst Clive Longbottom, the router could broaden the appeal of push technology to users performing corporate software upgrades.
Tibco sales manager Sven Theile said that building Rendezvous into routers would help organisations to conserve bandwidth and prevent corporate networks becoming flooded with IP traffic.
The router targets only the appropriate clients instead of broadcasting the same data to every client as conventional IP based networks do.
"You are only sending the information that's required down a particular pipe. It is the way to move volumes and volumes of data intelligently," said Theile.
Phil Smith, Cisco director of business development, said that the technology also suited video broadcasts across an Intranet.
The products will allow client devices to receive data from different servers without a dedicated connection to each one. If the client is moved and reconnected, the router will seek it out rather than leaving the user to resubscribe.
Tibco's software guarantees message delivery - if the network crashes, the information is saved and sent again.
