Revenues rose 6% YoY

Cisco’s (CSCO) routing business saw revenues rise 6% YoY (year-over-year) in fiscal 1Q17. Revenues in this segment rose from $2 billion in fiscal 1Q16 to $2.1 billion in fiscal 1Q17. This 6% increase was driven by strength in “Service Provider Core and Edge.” Over 50% of Cisco’s routing business comes from service providers.

Earlier this year, Cisco stated that it is well positioned to drive the transition to software-defined wide area networking with its IWAN portfolio (Intelligent WAN), which gives the firm an opportunity in the routing space. Cisco further stated that it’s seeing continued strength with its web scale customers where its core development continued.
