Cisco Market Strategies and Forecasts 2002-2007

Cisco is poised to benefit from the transition from circuit switch network to IP architecture.  Circuit switching is being replaced because it is inefficient.  Circuit switching depends on an end-to-end circuit connection that leaves a lot of dead space in the network while a single call is being handled.

Packet switching permits a single line to manage many calls simultaneously.  Cisco dominates packet network equipment markets.  Frame relay, IP, and ATM are known as packet or cell switching technologies.  Cisco dominates in the IP space.

Routers are positioned to achieve market dominance Worldwide in converged networks.  Markets at $7.9 billion in 2001 will decline significantly in 2002 and 2003 as a result of a decline in capital spending.

As the Internet proves its intrinsic value and as companies begin to achieve improved productivity as a result of using the Internet, spending will increase at a rapid rate.  Markets are expected to reach $10.8 billion by 2007.

Cisco has a dominant position in the Internet equipment market.  Cisco brings substantial resources to the router and security markets.  Market dominance has enabled Cisco to reduce prices on its products within a short period of time following the introduction of these products.  This reduces the margins and therefore, the profitability of its competitors.
