AT&T Welcomes Brocade Employees as It Closes Vyatta Acquisition

AT&T have completed their acquisition of the Vyatta assets from Brocade. Their press-release announces the deal as a way of continuing their network transformation.

This is one of the first sales prior to Brocade’s purchase by Broadcom, scheduled for later in the year. Most of the other announced deals are conditional on the successful purchase by Broadcom. These include Arris taking on the Ruckus Wireless unit, and taking on the data centre business.

“Just as important as the Vyatta network operating system and other assets are the developers and other staff joining as part of the deal. They have valuable skills and experience that will complement and drive our ongoing network transformation. We’re excited to have them on the AT&T team.” – Chris Rice, SVP, AT&T Labs.

The other staff includes Robert Bays, former SVP of Software Engineering at Brocade.
