MANHASSET, N.Y. — The current surplus of NAND flash memory is expected to negatively impact prices of dynamic random access memory (DRAM) devices in the near future, according to market research firm iSuppli Corp.

That news could be sobering to memory suppliers that have been reallocating production to adjust to earlier market conditions and projections. iSuppli (El Segundo, Calif.) expects the NAND market weakness to spread into worsening DRAM market conditions, creating a zero-sum game particularly for suppliers of both types of

Next month, Cisco will introduce the next release of Call Manager, version 5.0, at the VoiceCon show in Orlando. Lots of changes are to be expected, including support for Linux in addition to Windows Server, and finally support for SIP clients.

That last fact is a big deal. Unless you've been comatose for the past few years or otherwise blissfully ignorant of the VoIP industry, you know Call Manager is the only major IP PBX to not offer SIP client support. Cisco

However, the second

Is there room in the world for another WAN accelerator? If Massachusetts startup Certeon can support its claims, there just might be.

Cisco overhauled its security management software in an attempt to push its “self defending networks” message to enterprise data center managers.

For a couple of years, Cisco has extolled the virtues of its “self-defending networks” strategy to anyone willing to listen. Instead of deploying a plethora of different security devices like perimeter firewalls, Cisco is urging users to embed security into their networks, as an in-stream device or as part of the networking equipment itself. (See Chambers Shouts About Security.) As part
