Does the uncertainty of your wireless provider’s future have you concerned?
You’re not alone. Broadcom’s recent announcement of their acquisition of Brocade left the fate of many unclear with their intention to:
“divest Brocade’s IP Networking business and Ruckus Wireless, consisting of wireless and campus networking, data center switching and routing, and software networking solutions.”
With the decision to sell off the rest of the networking business, including Ruckus Wireless, a company Brocade just recently acquired; customers, prospective customers, and the market as a whole are concerned for several reasons:
No Future: It’s extremely risky to leave your communications and connectivity for your business and customers to a technology that has an uncertain future.
“The nature of the deal in which they are planning to sell off parts of the business will have to create a level of uncertainty among Brocades’s current customer base. The company blog post did little to address that. Ruckus Wireless, the company it bought last April suddenly finds itself in no-man’s land with no clear understanding of who its owner will ultimately be.”
– Ron Miller, TechCrunch
No Support: As networking vendors are divested, sold off in whole or in parts to another company, customer support will be uncertain.
No Room For Partners: Partner programs and rebates will be uncertain while the future of the business remains unclear as the final disposition of the networking business is not final.
