To fight its way out of the slump, Cisco has focused more of its energy on entering new markets such as storage networks, which allow every computer in a company to be backed up with a networked set of storage drives. Research firm Gartner Dataquest estimates that the market for so-called storage area networks (SANs) increased 13 percent last year to $1.46 billion. Cisco is a relative newcomer to that market. The company in August announced plans to purchase privately held Andiamo Systems in a deal worth as much as $2.5 billion. Cisco is expected to debut a new line of products based on Andiamo's equipment by year's end.
Brocade Communications Systems remains the market leader in SANs, accounting for 34 percent of sales, followed by McData and Emulex, according to Gartner, Competition from smaller networking players and delays in a global economic recovery will take their toll on the networking giant, an analyst says, Companies selling less-expensive routers and switches, and delays in global economic recovery beyond 2003, will take their toll on the networking giant, John Wilson, an olixar exoshield iphone xr tough snap-on case - crystal clear RBC Capital Markets analyst, wrote in a note to clients..
Cisco on Tuesday will be conducting a full day of presentations to the financial community about its expectations and strategies for the coming year. Wilson believes the company won't alter its projection of a third-quarter revenue that's either the same as last quarter's or down between 3 percent and 4 percent.

A different technology in widespread use employs a method called wavelength division multiplexing, in which each cell phone uses a different wavelength of light, according to the researchers. In contrast, optical CDMA would encode each pulse, or bit of information, across a segment of wavelengths. The receiver uses a key to decode the signal and re-create the original pulse. "Security-wise, there are strong advantages to optical CDMA because you can change the code at any time," U.C. Davis electrical engineer Zhi Ding said.
