Cisco on Tuesday announced that it plans to acquire July Systems, a privately-held company headquartered in Burlingame, California with offices in Bangalore, India.
July Systems provides an enterprise-grade location platform with leading features such as instant customer activation, data-driven behavioral insights, contextual rules engine and APIs. The solution is a cloud-based subscription offering with global footprint and backed by end-to-end SLA.
Cisco intents to leverage July Systems' technology to bolster its Enterprise Wi-Fi platform to enable superior indoor location services capabilities.
The July Systems team will join Cisco’s Enterprise Networking Group led by Scott Harrell, senior vice president and general manager.
According to Cisco, the acquisition also supports its journey to intent-based networking —a fundamentally new way of building and managing networks for the digital era.
