Service Provider Cloud

Light Reading's 23 Most Popular Cisco Stories in 2018

It was a year of transformation for Cisco, as the networking giant transformed its own business so it could better partner with service providers and enterprises to transform theirs.

2018 saw big changes in Cisco Systems Inc. (Nasdaq: CSCO)'s service provider business, with Yvette Kanouff, the SVP and GBM of that business unit, leaving the company. Jonathan Davidson, who joined Cisco from Juniper Networks Inc. (NYSE: JNPR) a couple of years ago, took the helm.

Under Kanouff's leadership this year, Cisco sold its video software business to a private equity firm, Permira .

In other news in 2018, Cisco saw mounting threats from VMware Inc. (NYSE: VMW) and white boxes, acquired some companies and beefed up network automation.
