The 10 Biggest Cisco Stories Of 2017

What A Year It Was For Cisco

Shortly after Chuck Robbins took the helm of Cisco in 2015, he said the networking giant needed to move "faster, faster, faster, faster." This year, Robbin's vision of pushing the innovation pace into overdrive was achieved as the San Jose, Calif.-based network leader launched its redefining "new network," spent billions on acquisitions and dramatically increased its differed revenues in a move to become a software, services-centric company.

However, Cisco did hit some serious road bump in 2017 as its networking market share continued to slip, a faulty clock component inside popular products had channel partners in an uproar, and former longtime CEO John Chambers officially let go of the company he spent 26 years building. CRN breaks down the ten most significant Cisco news stories of 2017.
