A return to the core business of switches and routers is the driving force behind a turnaround in Cisco’s results, the company’s chairman and CEO says.

Cisco’s latest quarterly report shows net income falling 7.9% to US$1.8 billion, but net sales rising 4.7% to US$11.3 billion.

Cash and cash equivalents were US$44.4 billion, compared with $44.6 billion three months previously.
