Cisco Systems Inc
We manufacture and sell networking and communications products and provide services associated with that equipment and its use. Our products are installed at corporations, public institutions, and telecommunication companies, and commercial businesses, and are also found in personal residences. We provide a broad line of products for transporting data, voice, and video within buildings, across campuses, and around the world. We conduct our business globally and are managed geographically in four segments: the Americas; Europe, the Middle East, and Africa (EMEA); Asia Pacific; and Japan.

We sell scalable, standards-based networking products that cover a wide range of customers' networking needs. Our products and services help customers build their own network infrastructures while providing tools to allow them to communicate with key stakeholders, including customers, prospects, business partners, suppliers and employees.

Our products are used individually or in combinations to connect computing devices to networks or computer networks with each other'whether they are within a building, across a campus, or around the world. Our breadth of product and service offerings enables us to offer a wide range of products and services to meet customer requirements. We also provide products and services that allow customers to transition their various networks to a single multiservice data, voice and video network.

We refer to some of our products and technologies as Advanced Technologies, and we believe some of these Advanced Technologies may grow over time to become material contributors to our overall business. We have currently identified six Advanced Technologies for particular focus: IP telephony, security, optical networking, storage area networking, wireless technology, and home networking, although over time, additional Advanced Technologies may be identified for focus and investment. In addition, investments may be curtailed or eliminated in some presently identified Advanced Technologies depending on market developments and resource allocation decisions.

Customers and Markets

Our customers' networking needs are influenced by numerous factors, including the size of an organization, number and types of computer systems, geographic location, and the applications requiring communications. Our customer base is not concentrated in any particular industry. In each of the past three fiscal years, no single customer has accounted for 10 percent or more of our net sales. Our customers are primarily in the following markets:

Large Enterprise Businesses

Large enterprise businesses are generally defined as organizations with 500 or more employees, located in multiple locations or branch offices, with complex networking needs within a multi-vendor environment for computer systems and IT support infrastructure. Our large enterprise customers span all major industries, including: government, education, retail, finance, health care, manufacturing and transportation. We have developed industry-focused solutions to address specific customer requirements. These solutions include a full range of our core products and advanced technology solutions such as: enterprise routing, switching, security, IP telephony, mobility and storage. In addition, we offer a broad range of value-added services including service and support packages, financing and managed service offerings through our service provider partners.

Service Providers

Service providers offer data, voice, and/or video communication services to businesses, governments, utilities and consumers. They include regional, national and international telecommunications carriers, as well as Internet, cable and wireless service providers. Many service providers resell our products to their own residential, enterprise or commercial customers. Additionally, service providers use a variety of our switching, routing and network management products in their own core networks. Compared to other end-user customers, service provider customers are more likely to require network design services, and their business is characterized by long design cycles.


Commercial customers, primarily small and medium-sized businesses, have fewer than 500 employees and a need for networks of their own, as well as connection to the Internet and to business partners. However, these customers generally have limited resources and expertise in networking technology. Therefore, we attempt to provide products that are affordable and easy to install and use. The commercial market remains an area of potential growth for network adoption and deployment of intelligent network solutions. The emerging technologies, which include network security, mobility and converged voice and data solutions, are of specific interest to small and medium-sized businesses.


We participate in the consumer and small office/home office (SOHO) market through our recent acquisition of the business of The Linksys Group, Inc ('Linksys'). Linksys offers several solutions including routers, network cards, USB adapters and other products that enable customers to deploy networking in their homes or small office environments.


We compete in the networking and communications equipment markets, providing products and services for transporting data, voice and video traffic across intranets, extranets, and the Internet. These markets are characterized by rapid change, converging technologies, and a migration to networking solutions that offer superior advantages. These market factors represent both an opportunity and a competitive threat to us. We compete with numerous vendors in each product category. The overall number of our competitors providing niche product solutions may increase. Also, the composition of competitors may change as we increase our activity in our advanced technology markets.

Our competitors include 3Com, Alcatel, Avaya, Avici, Check Point Software, Ciena, Dell, Ericsson, Enterasys, Extreme Networks, Foundry Networks, Fujitsu, Huawei, Juniper, Lucent, NetScreen, Nokia, Nortel Networks, Redback Networks, Riverstone, Siemens AG and Sycamore Networks, among others. Some of these companies compete across many of our product lines, while others are primarily focused in a specific product area. Barriers to entry are relatively low, and new ventures to create products that do or could compete with our products are regularly formed. In addition, several of our competitors may have greater resources, including technical and engineering resources, than we do. As we expand into new markets, we will face competition not only from our existing competitors but from other competitors as well, including existing companies with strong technological, marketing and sales positions in those markets. We also sometimes face competition from resellers and distributors of our products.

Impressive 36.92% Double Digit EPS Growth Achieved by Computer Networks Giant, Cisco Systems Inc., this Fiscal Year Ending October 28, 2023

Interpreting Cisco Systems Inc's Financial Results: A Promising Outlook Despite Recent Stock Performance
By John Smith
As an investor closely monitoring the financial performance of various companies, I recently analyzed the financial results of the leading computer networks company, Cisco Systems Inc. Looking at their most recent fiscal period ending on October 28, 2023, it is evident that Cisco has achieved significant growth in both revenue and earnings.
In terms of revenue, Cisco Systems Inc experienced a notable 7.6% increase, reaching $14.67 billion compared to $13.63 billion in the same period last year. This growth reflects the company's ability to attract more customers and expand its market presence. It is a reassuring sign for investors as it demonstrates Cisco's strong positioning in the competitive computer networks industry.
