NetScout Acquires OnPath Technologues
In case you missed it, NetScout acquired ONPATH Technologies on November 1, 2012. In a statement explaining the acquisition NetScout said it did so to “Extend (its) Next Generation Network Monitoring Switch Portfolio”.
OnPath had previously purchased the technology that powers the Telenex 2700 matrix switch from Brocade Communications in 2009. Since that time OnPath has gone on to develop the industry leading UCS 2900 Connectivity System a monitoring platform that solves a variety of high-performance applications issues and the OnPath 3900 a family of network switches that automate and secure data center and test infrastructure.
Upon the introduction of the UCS 2900, OnPath announced the End-of-Support for the Telenex 2700 matrix switch, which ended on March 31, 2011. Since that time Telenex 2700 support from the manufacturer has been on an as available basis.
With the NetScout acquisition Telenex support is now three times removed from the original manufacturer.
