Cisco Completes Acquisition of Reactivity
SAN JOSE, CA, March 21, 2007 - Cisco Systems, Inc., (NASDAQ: CSCO) today announced it has completed the acquisition of privately-held Reactivity, Inc., of Redwood City, California. Reactivity is a leading XML (eXtensible Markup Language) gateway provider for organizations ranging from commercial enterprises to the Global 500.
Customers and major software providers are evolving their enterprise software architectures from a client-server paradigm to a service-oriented architecture.

The Reactivity acquisition demonstrates Cisco's commitment to the expanding Application Networking Services (ANS) Advanced Technology segment, which is an important part of Cisco's Service-Oriented Network Architecture (SONA) strategy and vision. Reactivity complements and extends the capability of Cisco's ANS portfolio for these emerging application architectures.
