Wireless Switch Pioneer Vivato Stops Operations
Vivato, one of the original wireless LAN switch startups, has ceased operations, Wi-Fi Net News (WNN) has reported.
The company's demise was confirmed by a corporate spokesperson, according to WNN. The shut-down has already occurred, according to WNN.
Vivato, along with other companies like Airespace and Aruba Wireless Networks made news three years ago by introducing WLAN switches that provided a more centralized method of managing wireless LANs than trying to manage large numbers of access points, each with built-in intelligence. Airespace has since been acquired by Cisco Systems.
Reports of the company's difficulties have circulated on the Web for a number of months.
