This is a very interesting acquisition for Cisco. It is difficult to tell whether this is an expansion of their current market strategy, or simply a new tool to use to maintain current market share and possibly achieve greater market share. If properly merged, this could be a plus for them.

They will FLIP it for nothing. I just think it is time for Chambers to go so that a new idea will come to Cisco. He has done well, but time for change is now.

Good technology but $5 billion in these times is a gamble, hope Cisco knows what its doing this time.

NDS has a long history. See the story here: http://msn.fool.com/EETimes/1997/EETimes970613d.htm This is what I wrote back in 1997 when I visited NDS in Heathrow: In the field of digital-video technology alone, News Corp. recently [1997] consolidated three companies under the name NDS: a company formerly known as News Digital Systems, Digi-Media Vision and News Datacom. Digi-Media, before being acquired by News Corp., was the advanced-product division of the U.K.'s National Transcommunication Ltd. One of the things about NDS that always impressed the industry about its conditional-access expertise. Without a good encryption technology, streaming video -- whether done through satellite, cable or "cloud" -- has always been an iffy proposition to content providers.

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
