Is bigger better in California and globally?
It is not surprising that Cisco is spread too thin against the up and comers; competitiors do many of their applications and data growth with superior abilities. Cisco may want it all, but even in their video conferencing venue there are much superior products like Nefsis, that outweigh cost and quality. They are big, and have large marketing powers, but pricing and quality are very competitive in a global marketplace. Bigger isn't always better, sometimes it just makes more 'noise'. Cisco is fabulous at being global, but are they really competitive for the long haul of universal cloud secure integration?
