In part to support the company’s Open Network Environment (ONE) strategy, Cisco announced plans to buy Cariden Technologies Inc., a privately held, Calif.-based network planning, design and traffic-management solutions provider for some $141 million in cash and retention-based incentives; it should close during the company’s 2Q fiscal year.
