Cisco, ramping up its efforts around online video management services, has purchased Boston-based ExtendMedia for an undisclosed sum, Cisco announded today.

Dan Rayburn puts the value of the deal at around $80 million.

As we reported last year, ExtendMedia is playing a key role in the "TV Everywhere" initiative of cable operators.

We have republished our interview with ExtendMedia President and Founder Keith Kocho from back in 2007.  The topic we spoke about was P2P and content delivery networks.
