Network Magazine and Data Communications Merge
Posted on August 20, 1999Miller Freeman, Inc. has announced the merger of Network Magazine and Data Communications. The combined monthly publication, effective with the November 1999 issue, will retain the title of Network Magazine. Network Magazine's editorial will remain focused on providing information Technology (IT) and network managers with analysis, technology and product reports, and peer-to-peer information in the form of case studies.
"Network Magazine will be the only monthly publication which straddles the 'sweet spot' in the networking market, the intersection of enterprise networks and the edge of the public network," said Network Editor-in-Chief Steve Steinke. "We'll target our editorial toward those enterprises and service providers who are the biggest purchasers of networking products."
The magazine's circulation is projected to remain at its current level of 200,000, including readers from Data Communications' file of network architects and managers. Network Magazine will now be a single global publication, with over 25,000 of its readers coming from Data Communications' international subscriber base. Data Communications' data.com site will remain as a on-line source of networking information, as will NetworkMagazine.com.
