Cisco to acquire real-time network analytics firm Truviso

Truviso claims to be able to analyze up to 500,000 data records per second

Cisco announced Thursday that it plans to acquire network analytics company Truviso for an undisclosed amount, in an effort to help users hone operational efficiencies.

Truviso, a California-based, real-time Web analytics software company, will add the capability to analyze streaming data to the Cisco Prime network management platform, the company said in a statement. Cisco plans to close the deal in the fourth quarter of its fiscal year 2012, ending in July.

Cisco plans to integrate the Truviso team into the Cisco Network Management Technology Group. Truviso claims to be able to analyze up to 500,000 data records per second.

Cisco Prime collects network statistics to allow IT departments to get a complete picture of network traffic. Truviso analyzes network traffic in real-time, allowing users to get an instant view of network use, one of the most important capabilities of the companies software, Cisco said.

Enterprise customers and service providers want a better understanding of the "exponentially increasing" amount of network data to improve operations and service and provide real-time business intelligence, according to Cisco.

Truviso was founded in 2005 and aims to eliminate the need to batch, store, organize and retrieve data before analyzing, according to the company. The technology is used by ad networks, enterprise software vendors and e-commerce websites, among other users. Truviso also offers custom-branded analytics dashboards.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
