Revenue fell 10% YoY in fiscal 2Q17

Cisco Systems’ Routing business saw a revenue fall of 10% YoY (year-over-year) in fiscal 2Q17. Revenue in this segment fell from $2.0 billion in fiscal 2Q16 to $1.8 billion in fiscal 2Q17. Cisco stated that although its Routing revenue fell for the quarter, it saw a rise in orders. Routing is Cisco’s second-largest business segment in terms of revenue.

Notably, in 2016, Cisco stated that it was well positioned to drive the transition to software-defined WAN (wide-area networking) space with its IWAN (Intelligent WAN) portfolio, which would give it opportunities in the routing space. Cisco also stated that it was seeing continued strength in web-scale customers, where core development has continued.
