Enterprise and Data Center Networking Change-Up
Cisco wants to realign its networking strategy around users and applications, no matter where they sit on the network or in the data center or cloud. That's why the company is rolling its Enterprise Networking and Data Center networking teams into one group. Cisco's networking technology and Service Provider as a channel platform, which are currently a part the Cloud Platforms and Solutions group, will be moved into the new networking and data center segment.
Cisco's enterprise and data center networking shakeup follows a soft fiscal quarter for the tech leader in networking and data center sales. In Q1 2020, Cisco's Infrastructure segment, which includes the core switching and routing businesses as well as wireless and data center products, decreased by 1 percent. The majority of Cisco's revenue comes from its data center networking products.
