Bay Networks is paying $11m to acquire Isotro Network Management Inc. The Ottawa company specialises in IP address management, targeting large TCP/IP-based service provider and enterprise internetworks with NetID - an integrated IP address, Domain Naming Service and Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol management platform.
The acquisition is seen as a move towards the provision of much-needed comprehensive management abilities, and David House, chairman and CEO of Bay Networks explained: ?The DNS/DHCP technology from Isotro will be the foundation of Bay Networks' IP Services platform to enable value-added services across the Bay Networks product architecture.?
Rod Anderson, Isotro?s CEO, commented: ?Isotro has established itself as a technology and market leader in IP address management. The integration of NetID with Bay Networks' product line sets the stage for providing value-added IP networking to both the Internet and intranet markets... and allowing us to continue as... a provider of enterprise address management solutions.?
When the transaction is complete, Rod Anderson will report to Brad Noblet, vice president and general manager of Bay Networks' Router product division.
