Questions For Cisco Ahead Of Earnings Call

Cisco is set to provide the results of its second fiscal quarter Wednesday as channel concerns linger over the networking giant's handling of a product replacement effort currently under way.

Wall Street is estimating Cisco revenue for the quarter will hit $11.6 billion with earnings of 56 cents per share. During its first fiscal quarter earnings call in November, San Jose, Calif.-based Cisco gave a weak revenue guidance for its second quarter, projecting revenue to decline 2 percent to 4 percent year over year. The guidance was due to a slowdown in service provider spending as companies watch the U.S. and global political landscape, according to Cisco.

Here are five key areas that the company's partners should be waiting to hear more about.
