Arris to pay $800m to buy Ruckus from Broadcom/Brocade

By Caroline Gabriel

As widely anticipated, cable supplier Arris is to acquire Ruckus Wireless when the carrier WiFi firm’s current owner, Brocade, is taken over by Broadcom later this year. Brocade/Broadcom will not quite get the $1bn which was predicted at the start of the year by Reuters sources, but it will get $800m for Ruckus, along with the Brocade ICX business, which makes data center, campus and carrier Ethernet switches. This is a drop from the $1.2bn which the company paid for Ruckus last April, when it was trying to expand its wireless and service provider activities by acquiring a leading public WiFi equipment vendor.
