Force 10 and Turin merge for Ethernet

Force 10 Networks is to merge with Turin Networks as the Ethernet switching marketplace continues to consolidate where Cisco remains king, although Juniper has pretensions to the crown.

Last year Foundry Networks merged with Brocade, and Enterasys Networks with Siemens Enterprise Communications to have a better chance in this fiercely competitive  sector.

According to Network World (US)  Force 10 and Turin will have a combined user base of 1,300 customers around the world, both enterprises and service providers.

Both companies are privately owned, so no financial details were provided. The new entity will be known as Force 10 Networks, while

Henry Wasik, president and CEO of Turin Networks, will become the president and CEO of the combined entity.
