"This will allow Cisco to provide live video, video-on-demand and other rich media content to desktops and digital signage displays using IP for applications such as targeted communications, advertising and training."

Tivella was founded 2001 and has 10 employees based primarily in Milpitas, with corporate offices in Half Moon Bay. After the closing, the Tivella team and product portfolio will be integrated into Cisco's Emerging Markets Technology Group
