There are rumours that Cisco is selling its STB wings, software, hardware or both.
Software might refer to the recently acquired NDS conditional access company and hardware should refer to the division resulted by the acquisition of Scientific Atlanta acquisition.
I also heard of Cisco approaching companies like, TCS, Arris etc..
Also, due to various reasons, the top guys, Martin De Beer, Jesper Anderson and Yorai Feldman are not on board. Are these various reasons just a coincedence?
