Cisco Systems, Inc. designs, manufactures, and sells Internet protocol (IP) based networking and other products related to the communications and information technology (IT) industry worldwide. The company also provides services associated with these products and their use. The company’s business is organized into three segments: Americas; Europe, Middle East, and Africa; and Asia Pacific, Japan, and China. Products and Services The company’s products and technologies are grouped into various categories, including Switching; Next-Generation Network (NGN) Routing; Collaboration; Data Center; Wireless; Service Provider Video; Security; and Other Products. In addition to its product offerings, the company provides a range of service offerings, including technical support services and advanced services. Switching Switching is an integral networking technology used in campuses, branch offices, and data centers. Switches are used within buildings in local-area networks (LANs), and across great distances in wide-area networks (WANs). The company’s switching products offer various forms of connectivity to end users, workstations, IP phones, wireless access points, and servers; and also function as aggregators on LANs and WANs. The company’s switching systems employ technologies, including Ethernet, Power over Ethernet, Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE), Packet over Synchronous Optical Network, and Multiprotocol Label Switching. Fixed-configuration switches are designed to cover a range of deployments in both large enterprises, as well as in small and medium-sized businesses, providing a foundation for converged data, voice, and video services. The company’s fixed-configuration switches range from small, standalone switches to stackable models that function as a single, scalable switching unit. Modular switches are used by enterprise and service provider customers with large-scale network needs. These products are designed to offer customers the flexibility and scalability to deploy networking services without degrading overall network performance. Fixed-configuration and modular switches also include products, such as optics modules, which are shared across multiple product platforms. The company’s switching portfolio also includes virtual switches and related offerings. These products provide switching functionality for virtual machines and are designed to operate in a complementary fashion with virtual services to optimize security and application behavior. In 2014, the company introduced what it calls its application centric infrastructure (ACI) solution, which is part of its Data Center Switching portfolio. Cisco ACI consists of the Cisco Nexus 9000 Series Switches, a Cisco APIC and accompanying centralized policy management capability, integrated physical and virtual infrastructure, and an open ecosystem of network, storage, management, and orchestration vendors. In 2016, the company introduced its Tetration Analytics platform, which supplements Cisco ACI offering by delivering real-time visibility across the data center using hardware, and software sensors to provide behavior-based application insight with deep forensic-based analysis. The company’s switching products are used by customers in both data center and campus environments. Individually, its switching suite of products are designed to offer the performance and features required for nearly any deployment, from traditional small workgroups, wiring closets, and network cores to virtualized and converged corporate data centers. NGN Routing The company’s NGN Routing portfolio of hardware and software solutions consists primarily of physical and virtual routers, and routing and optical systems. Its solutions are designed to meet the security needs of its customers. The company offers a range of hardware and software solutions, from core network infrastructure and mobile network routing solutions for service providers, and enterprises to access routers for branch offices and for telecommuters and consumers at home. Collaboration The company’s Collaboration portfolio integrates voice, video, data, and mobile applications on fixed
