[* I was also quite taken by the Red Herring cover article last month
titled "Death to ATM!", with an interview of the charismatic CEO of
Granite Systems. Obviously, Cisco was impressed as well. - dan *]

Cisco to Buy Granite Systems

Cisco Systems, Inc. plans to acquire Granite Systems, Inc. for its
Gigabit Ethernet technology. Cisco plans to use the systems to
offer customers a wider choice of backbone networks. Multilayer
switching and Gigabit Ethernet provide wider bandwidth for
multimedia, intranets, groupware, and the Internet. Granite will
become part of the Systems Workgroup business unit.
