Re: Limited??
Agreed, it is a big part of the workforce. With the current announcement of 6,000 job cuts, I wonder, if it would be fair to say that the days for hardware based switching is over and the future will be all about software based switching.

InterCloud and Internet of Things
The internet of things might provide a future for Cisco -- in some aspects, an IoT that requires better security than the current Cloud has to offer. This makes InterCloud interesting, because deploying private Clouds can be more expensive at times, and public Clouds are viewed as having less security. So for many startups with limited capital, Cloud virtualization could be a good fit. A firm could start-off with the public Cloud and as and if, security needs are better defined, the firm can move their operations into their private Cloud.

Cisco's NSA issue
Whether or not Cisco ever cooperated with the government to compromise its equipment, the NSA's reported habit of intercepting routers en route to customers is probably enough to prevent the company from ever selling in China again. Give it a few more quarters and watch the tech sector start asking for bailout to cover the damage that overzealous spying has done to US industry.

Limited??
"Limited restructuring"? What's limited about nearly 10% of your workforce? Maybe he was comparing it to Microsoft's less limited layoff of 18,000.
