Policy Management Consolidation: Cisco to Buy BroadHop

2.5 years ago I had a post  about - "Bridgewater and BroadHop are Getting Closer to Cisco" (here).

Bridgewater is no longer an acquisition option, and while Cisco launched its own PCRF product since then (IPCF - here and here), it appears acquisition is still relevant.

Cisco announced (in a blog) it "plans to add a critical piece of network management technology to its portfolio today by announcing its intent to acquire Denver, Colorado-based BroadHop, a provider of next-generation policy control and service management technology for carrier networks worldwide. BroadHop’s widely deployed policy control solutions for mobile and fixed networks will be integrated into Cisco’s Service Provider Mobility Group to provide service providers the flexibility to control, monetize and personalize the types of service they choose, on any network".

See "Cisco Announces Intent to Acquire BroadHop" - here.
