McDATA Corporation and Computer Network Technology Corporation, ("CNT"), two leaders in the storage networking space, outlined the post-acquisition go-to-market strategy, combined roadmap and targeted business model during a conference call and webcast hosted by John Kelley, McDATA chairman, president and CEO; Ernest Sampias, chief financial officer for McDATA; and Tom Hudson, chairman, president and CEO of CNT. The combined roadmap provides solid direction for McDATA to more broadly address partner and customer needs with unmatched technology and services leadership and expertise across SAN, MAN and WAN environments.

The CNT acquisition further strengthens McDATA's Global Enterprise Data Infrastructure initiative, meeting customers' and partners' growing requirements for information lifecycle management, utility computing and on-demand access to information. McDATA's existing line of Intrepid Directors, Sphereon Fabric Switches, Eclipse SAN Routers and security and management software will be complemented by CNT's UltraNet extension products, their Replication Appliance and Matrix Switches, supported with professional and maintenance services.
