Cisco has reversed its recent buying trend and sold its Multinet TCP/IP technology to Process Software.
The deal, of undisclosed value, covers Cisco's Multinet and Multinet Secure/IP product set. These products work with Digital's OpenVMS operating system to allow a Digital VAX or Alpha box to access services and applications available on the World Wide Web via IP.
Process will take over the delivery and support of Multinet from 1 June. Until then, Cisco will carry on supporting the Multinet family.
Recent reports in 'Business Week' magazine suggested that Cisco management was finding it hard to keep all its disparate product sets running without conflict.
Dean Goodermote, chief executive and president of Process said the sale will ensure that Multinet end users will carry on receiving good support and what he described as ?the best TCP/IP products".
Without Multinet, he suggested, OpenVMS would not be properly supported with TCP/IP software and services - although Digital has its own set of TCP/IP protocols. Digital has come into competition with Cisco in other areas recently, introducing, most recently, a set of switching products that competes with Cisco?s routers.
A Cisco representative said there was no-one available for comment today.
