  • Intel acquires Rivet Networks


    Intel has acquired Rivet Networks, a NIC company originally known as Bigfoot Networks. (formally also part of Qualcomm)




    Known for their Killer branded devices, this acquirement may lead to more advanced network solutions for enthusiasts.




    A few key notes/takeaways:




    Quote





    Intel is set to keep the Killer brand and integrate it into its portfolio of products.

    Rivet Networks have also developed a number of technologies to its portfolio, including supporting switch-like mechanics for multi-controller systems, or Wi-Fi extension services through time-muxing the Wi-Fi modem.




    All these technologies will now fall under the Intel umbrella.






    Quote





    This new acquisition for Intel will enable an element of Ethernet traffic monitoring and optimization the portfolio has not had before, but it will be interesting to see how Intel hands the acquisition compared to when Qualcomm Atheros acquired Rivet Networks some years ago.
