Cabletron Systems has finally found a name for its stand-alone Spectrum business, announcing today that it will be known as Aprisma Management Technologies.
Cabletron intended on naming the company "Netuitive Communications" in September this year, but was forced to find an alternate name after realising another company, Rapid Clip Neural Systems had also applied for the same name.
Spectrum will remain the brand name for Aprisma's products, Ian Fewtrell, managing director of Cabletron Australia and New Zealand said, adding that in Australia Cabletron will continue to distribute and support the products.
Coinciding with the company's new name is news that Cisco has approved Aprisma as a Cisco Management Connection partner.
A key aspect of the partnership will be the integration between CiscoWorks2000 and Spectrum, officials said.
Fewtrell said the partnership represents benefits for Cisco and Cabletron.
"It makes our joint customers more comfortable using Spectrum," he said.
"It opens up an enormous market for the Spectrum product."
Fewtrell was unable to reveal the exact number of local joint Cisco and Cabletron customers, but said they "already have quite a few".
