Cisco Systems


Cisco Systems continues a huge shift to selling subscription software services like cybersecurity, a strategy intended to offset a years-long slowdown in its networking business. The company’s routers and switches are still big sellers, contributing a significant portion of Cisco’s $49.3 billion in total sales for fiscal 2018, 3% more than the previous year.
