“Ensoft brings a strong talent pipeline to Cisco”

US networking heavyweight Cisco today said it was buying privately held UK software specialist Ensoft for an undisclosed sum.

San Jose-headquartered Cisco said the acquisition will “further our commitment to simplify service provider networks through automation and programmability.”

Harpenden-based Ensoft employs around 70 software engineers specialising in networking software.

The company already develops IOS XR (the distributed carrier-class software powering Cisco’s highest-end multi-terabit routers) features for Cisco, and will continue to support networking software offered through Cisco.

Ensoft describes itself as “highly profitable” and has reported annual revenues of circa £10 million.
