Cabletron Systems has set up a new unit to market its long running Spectrum network management product in a bid to increase its low profile.
Spectrum software solutions and services organisation will be headed up by Ken Sullivan who previously chaired Cabletron's worldwide services and support. His role will now be taken over by former Compaq director of worldwide service and solutions marketing, Earle Humphreys.
The unit's brief will be to integrate Spectrum services with partner products, as well as develop products for small to medium sized networks.
Paul Mason, analyst at IDC, noted:"The worldwide network and system management market totalled nearly $9 billion in 1997 and is forecast to grow to $16 billion by 2002. This announcement frees the Spectrum organisation to participate in this dynamic market."
