Cisco Systems, Inc. today signed a definitive agreement to purchase privately held Jahi Networks, Inc. of San Jose, Calif.

Jahi develops network management appliances designed to simplify device deployment, configuration and management.

Under the terms of the agreement, Cisco will pay approximately US$16 million in cash and assumed options.

“A major challenge in providing network management applications is the lack of consistent means of communicating with the variety of devices that comprise an end-to-end network — a programmatic interface can provide an automated means of interaction with network devices," said Cliff Meltzer, senior vice president for Cisco’s network management technology group.
