Cisco is set to unveil a new edition of its SD-WAN software that will extend the system’s reach and include new management capabilities.

Among the most significant enhancements to Cisco SD-WAN release 17.10, expected in December, is the ability to use Cisco SD-WAN Multi Region Fabric (MRF) support with existing Software Defined Cloud Interconnect (SDCI) systems to significantly expand the reach and control of the SD-WAN environment. 

MRF lets customers divide their SD-WAN environments into multiple regional networks that operate distinctly from one another, along with a central core-region network for managing inter-regional traffic, according to Cisco. 

SDCI technology is used to link enterprise resources to a variety of cloud, network, and internet service providers. Cisco customers could use SDCI with their SD-WAN deployments in the past but not MRF.

By combining the two technologies and using the Cloud OnRamp Multicloud Interconnect Gateway in Cisco SD-WAN software, customers can now set network, configuration and security policies across a wide variety of locations from a central site. Cisco’s SD-WAN Cloud OnRamp links branch offices or individual remote users to cloud applications such as Cisco’s Webex, Microsoft 365, AWS, Google, Oracle, Salesforce and more.

Customers can now assign regions and roles to SD-WAN edges deployed within SDCI infrastructure, and they can segment MRF regions into multiple sub-regions and share border routers between these sub-regions, allowing for better redundancy and failover-centric network designs, according to John Joyal, senior manager, product and solutions marketing with Cisco's enterprise SD-WAN and routing group. (Joyal wrote a blog about Cisco's SD-WAN MRF enhancements.)

Killexams : Is It Time to Buy Cisco Stock?

Shares of networking hardware giant Cisco Systems (CSCO 1.58%) have trended lower this year, just like most other tech stocks. A 25% decline in the stock price has made it look cheap. Cisco reported adjusted earnings per share of $3.36 in fiscal 2022, which ended July 30, putting the price-to-earnings ratio at 14.

That's not a particularly optimistic valuation for a company that is the overwhelming leader in its core markets. Cisco held a 42.3% share of the ethernet switch market in the second quarter, more than quadruple its next-largest competitor. In the service provider and enterprise router market, Cisco captured roughly one-third of all sales.

Despite Cisco's dominance, the company is prone to big drops in demand when economic uncertainty runs high. Cisco's products are mission critical, but it's also easy for an enterprise customer to delay upgrades during tough economic conditions.

With a recession a possibility in 2023, is now the time to buy Cisco stock?

So far, so good

Looking at Cisco's latest quarterly results, the company appears to be doing just fine. Revenue rose 7% year over year to $13.6 billion in the fiscal first quarter ended Oct. 29, and adjusted EPS jumped 5% to $0.86.

Importantly, Cisco's guidance for the full year is optimistic. The company sees revenue growing by between 4.5% and 6.5%, with non-GAAP EPS solidly above fiscal 2022 levels.

Cisco's transformation into a solutions provider is making the company's results a bit more predictable. While selling hardware is still the core business, the company has grown into a recurring revenue powerhouse. Subscriptions generated $5.9 billion of revenue in the first quarter, about 43% of total revenue. Of that, software subscription revenue was $3.3 billion, while service subscription revenue totaled $2.5 billion.

Cisco's results this year will be partly driven by a big backlog of orders. The company expects to end the fiscal year with a backlog that's two to three times larger than historical levels. Supply chain constraints throughout the pandemic have held up hardware shipments, and any software subscriptions tied to that hardware also got caught up in the backlog. Cisco's software subscription revenue surged 11% in the first quarter, as some of those subscriptions got delivered, although the company still has more than $2 billion of software in its backlog.

Even if global economies enter recession next year, Cisco's enormous backlog and its trove of subscription revenue should help prop up sales for a while, even if underlying demand deteriorates.

Product orders are tumbling

While Cisco expects revenue to grow this year, it's already seeing its customers pulling back on new orders. Total product orders plunged 14% in the first quarter. Europe, the Middle East, and Africa was the worst geographic segment for Cisco, with product orders down 23%. The company pointed to sky-high energy prices in Europe as one reason for the pullback, but it noted that some of its product lines that focus on lowering energy consumption could do well in this environment.

While orders were down, this was still the second-largest order tally for the first quarter in Cisco's history. Cisco had a difficult comparison against an extremely strong quarter for orders last year.

And it wasn't all bad news: Product orders coming from U.S. enterprise customers grew slightly, partly offsetting weakness from other customer groups.

Cisco's order backlog gives it visibility into revenue over the next few quarters, but if product orders continue to deteriorate, the company will work through that backlog and once again be at the mercy of end-market demand. And if a recession does strike next year, a prolonged period of weak product orders seems likely.

Is Cisco stock a buy?

Cisco's dominant market position and inexpensive valuation make it one of the most appealing tech stocks to buy right now. However, anyone who's considering investing in Cisco needs to understand that the company's revenue and profits can be a bit volatile. An overloaded backlog is smoothing things out right now, but that can't last forever.

Be ready for a revenue and profit decline sometime next year if global economies continue to deteriorate. In the long run, Cisco is aiming to grow revenue and profit by 5% to 7% annually. But that won't happen every year. If you're a long-term investor able to stomach some temporary setbacks, Cisco is a great stock to buy.

Killexams : Cisco Just Demonstrated the Power of Stock Buybacks

Networking-equipment giant Cisco Systems (CSCO 1.58%) reported results this Wednesday, covering the first quarter of fiscal-year 2023. The company generated adjusted earnings of $0.86 per diluted share, surpassing Wall Street's consensus earnings estimate of $0.84 per share.

Investors and analysts applauded Cisco's strong results, and the stock price closed 5% higher on Thursday. However, I don't see a ton of headlines mentioning one of Cisco's most shareholder-friendly qualities: The company is shoveling billions of dollars straight into the pockets of shareholders. I'm particularly impressed by Cisco's effective use of stock buybacks.

Cisco's buybacks make a difference

Fun fact: If not for the anti-dilutive effects of the buyback program, Cisco would barely have satisfied the consensus-earnings target.

Cisco's adjusted net income increased by 2% year over year, landing at $3.5 billion. At the same time, the stock-repurchasing program reduced the share count by 12 million stubs in the first quarter. The canceled stock adds up to 127 million shares on a trailing basis, which works out to a 3% reduction.

In a world where Cisco doesn't worry about share-count reductions, this-quarter's earnings would have landed at $0.84 per share, but only by the skin of its proverbial teeth. With three significant digits, you'd be looking at earnings of $0.856 per share, a rounding error away from missing the analyst target.

OK, that's no surprise

The lower share count shouldn't surprise anyone, especially since the bulk of this-year's buybacks fell in the second quarter of 2022. That period was covered in last-February's earnings update, giving everybody nine months to update their earnings estimates accordingly. The exercise above is just a bit of calculator-based entertainment, illustrating how generous Cisco's buyback program really is.

Cisco has invested an average of $1.1 billion per quarter in stock buybacks over the last three years. Dividend payments averaged $1.6 billion per quarter over the same period. That adds up to $1.69 billion of cash per quarter, sent right back to shareholders in the form of buybacks and dividends. Free cash flows in this time span averaged $3.53 billion per quarter, so the shareholder-bound cash returns consumed 48% of Cisco's average cash profits.

Cisco loves to share its cash profits with you, the shareholder

This generous cash return is no accident. Cisco has a history of generating massive cash flow and sharing them freely with stock owners.

On the earnings call, Cisco CFO Scott Herren said that the dividend-payout and buyback activity were "in line with our long-term objective of returning a minimum of 50% of free cash flow annually to our shareholders." That's been an official Cisco policy since the fourth quarter of 2019, three years ago.

I love seeing this shareholder-friendly policy in a veritable cash machine such as Cisco Systems. Even in an off-year like 2022, the company amassed $12.8 billion of trailing free cash flows -- and sent half of it right back to shareholders.

CSCO Free Cash Flow Chart

Today, Cisco's stock comes with a shrinking share count and a beefy dividend yield of 3.3%. You should expect the dividend payments to continue rising modestly over the years, while buybacks are adjusted to meet that 50% cash-sharing ambition, year by year. These qualities make Cisco a great buy for income investors, who value a free-flowing stream of cash profits and a tight commitment to cash-based profit sharing.

Killexams : GameStop shorts lose some firepower while longs look for a catalyst
Stock Of Video Game Retailer Gamestop Skyrocketing, Due To Reddit Message Board Traders

Michael M. Santiago

GameStop Corp. (NYSE:GME) is back on the list of most-discussed stocks after reports came out that indicated billionaire investor Carl Icahn has a large short position in the retailer, which he started to accumulate in January of 2021.

Despite Icahn being in the bear camp, short interest at 21% of total float is way down from the historical high of 285M shares shorted and 142% of total float on December 31, 2020, per data from S3 Partners. The firm noted that there has been short covering in GME for the last month with 1.1M shares bought to cover to represent a 2.0% decrease in total shares shorted.

S3 Partners' Ihor Dusaniwsky expects the short action on GME to continue to be lighter.

"While we have almost fifty-three million shares shorted in GME, there will not be a barrage of new GME short selling to drive down its stock price as stock loan supply is severely limited with over 95% of available stock borrows already used to cover short sales. There are three million shares left to borrow on the street and if short selling demand increases, the cost to borrow GME stock will spike."

Dusaniwsky tipped that while new short selling will have some effect on GME's stock price, it will be long buying and long selling which drive price movement in the near future.

GameStop (GME) is expected to report earnings sometime during the first two weeks of December. Options trading is implying plenty of volatility around that event. The retailer is not expected to post a quarterly profit, but the update on holiday sales expectations and the recent iOS launch of an NFT/Web3 wallet could be catalysts.

Underneath the GME hood, the Seeking Alpha Quant Rating on GameStop is at Hold and the quant score is high enough to place the stock in the upper half of the consumer discretionary sector.

Killexams : Cisco launches SMB partner program to help partners get quotes out faster

Cisco has launched its Partner Deal Express program to help partners sell to small and medium businesses.

The program aims to speed up partners' SMB sales by providing upfront discounts that don’t require approval on deals that fall under the program. It applies to EN and Meraki deals valued at up to $50,000 and security and collaboration deals under $25,000. 

Cisco will also review and adjust its SMB pricing on a quarterly basis, looking at historical pricing and competition - spokespeople said it was the first time Cisco has done this. Prices will be tailored to each country. 

“A normal deal process is very much geared to bigger deals," said Cisco ANZ managing director of partner, routes to market and small to medium business sales, Rodney Hamill, "but when you’re doing thousands of smaller deals it slowed things down and made it harder for partners to transact. The work the team has done has helped us get that scale.

A simplified and streamlined process would help partners “get quotes out a lot faster”.

The Partner Deal Express program includes four product families partners can use to construct solutions:

  • Cisco Meraki, for cloud-controlled Wi-Fi routing and security
  • Webex by Cisco, for enterprise-grade collaboration platform
  • Duo, for multi-factor authentication 
  • Cisco Umbrella, for cloud-delivered security.
  • Cisco On Premise portfolio, Cisco Catalyst, Cisco Business and Cisco Firepower series

Cisco will launching a new SMB website for APJC available in different languages for APJC countries.

The SMB segment was among the fastest growing for Cisco in its 2022 financial year.

Killexams : 9 Sonos tips, tricks, and little-known features

We’re always ready to talk about how much we like Sonos speakers. From their excellent audio quality and multiroom playback to their support for multiple voice assistants, Sonos is one of the best speaker brands you can buy for your home theater — or anywhere else, for that matter.

One of our favorite things about Sonos speakers is just how many features are packed into them. That means new users don’t always know what they’re capable of. We’re helping out by sharing some of our favorite tricks for Sonos speakers. Take a look and see what you can do!

Link your Sonos speakers together

Whether you’re bringing multiple Sonos speakers into your home or adding an additional Sonos device, you should know that they are very easy to link together. The Sonos app natively supports linking Sonos brand speakers together, and most are compatible with one another. Head into the Sonos app and add your new speaker to enable linking capabilities. This is useful for multiroom sound, stereo sound with two speakers, and other arrangements where your speakers can play simultaneously.

Trueplay tuning

Trueplay tuning is Sonos’ proprietary system that allows you to use your smartphone and the Sonos app to tune your Sonos speaker setup by listening to the sound in the room and adjusting the audio for the best effect in the space. It’s available on newer Sonos speakers, like the latest Sonos Plays. Sonos may suggest doing this during setup, but you can tune it at any time with the Sonos app. Go to Settings > Select Room > Trueplay, and Trueplay tuning to start the process. This may be useful if you move your Sonos speaker to a different position or to a new room.

Create volume limits

Do you want to keep your speaker from going above a certain volume to avoid annoying the neighbors or preventing little ones from accidentally cranking things up? Sonos speakers allow you to set a volume limit for each room that you have set up. Just go to Settings, select System, choose Select Room, and go to Volume limit. This will allow you to set an upper threshold for the volume so things don’t get too crazy for that particular room.

Set up rear speakers in a surround sound system

If you have two of the same kind of Sonos speaker, like two Sonos One speakers, you can set them as rear wireless speakers in a Sonos-based surround sound setup. For example, if you have a Sonos soundbar, like an Arc, Beam, or Ray, plus a Sonos Sub or Sub Mini, you can add a pair of Sonos Ones or even Fives as rear surround speakers that sound awesome.

Connect your preferred streaming services

Sonos offers some of the best compatibility with other services that we’ve seen, so a vital part of setting up is connecting your preferred music services. However, we suggest connecting all your music services if possible. Sonos works with Amazon Music, Apple Music, Spotify, Tidal, Deezer, and much more. Once you have all your services on the Sonos app, you can build playlists by pulling songs from any of them into one list managed by Sonos, combining music from different sources as you want. If you have a subscription that supports high-res music on a service like Tidal or Amazon Music, then your Sonos speaker may be compatible with high-res audio too.

Turn off the status indicator light

Many Sonos speakers come with an LED indicator light to let you know that it’s on and working. If this light becomes annoying at night (or is attracting too much attention from pets or toddlers), then you can easily turn it off. Head into the Settings on your Sonos app, and look for the section that says Status Indicator. There should be an option here to disable it.

Connect apps to your Sonos system

If you open the Sonos app and head to Services & voice, you will see a number of ideas on how to do more with your Sonos device. Here’s a good example: Head to Music & content in Settings, and choose Add a service. Here, you can add a ton of popular apps like Pocket Casts, radio stations from around the world, and the meditation app Calm, so you can start a meditation routine whenever you want on your Sonos speaker.

Sonos Move Smart Portable Wi-Fi and Bluetooth Speaker.

Set the Sleep function before bed and the Alarm function to wake up

If your Sonos speaker is pulling multiple shifts as a digital assistant, music speaker, and alarm clock, help it out a little by setting up a sleep mode. Settings in the Sonos app also have the option to create a Sleep timer that will shut off after a certain amount of playing.

If you like to drift off to some tunes before bed, activate this and set your time. At the same time, visit the Alarm section and set an alarm to help you wake up in the morning. Now your sleep schedule is all managed in one spot!

Use your smartphone to control Sonos speakers

Yes, you can always use the Sonos app to control your speaker and manage settings. But the latest versions of the Sonos app make this even easier. They have enhanced compatibility with the operating system on your phone, with widget controls that show up on the home or lock screen once you are finished setting up. This works for both iOS and Android and is an easy way to save some time.

Killexams : Cisco shares pop on earnings beat and increased 2023 forecast

A sign bearing the logo for communications and security tech giant Cisco Systems Inc is seen outside one of its offices in San Jose, California, August 11, 2022.

Paresh Dave | Reuters

Cisco reported fiscal first-quarter results on Wednesday that beat analysts' estimates and boosted its guidance for fiscal 2023.

The stock rose about 5% in extended trading.

Here's how the company did:

  • Earnings per share: 86 cents vs. 84 cents expected, according to Refinitiv
  • Revenue: $13.6 billion vs. $13.3 billion expected by analysts, according to Refinitiv

Revenue increased 6% year over year, while net income slid 10% to $2.7 billion. The company now expects sales growth in fiscal 2023 of 4.5% to 6.5%, up from a prior forecast that called for growth of 4% to 6%.

CFO Scott Herren said in a company release that Cisco delivered "strong results" and attributed the company's guidance forecast in part to an "easing supply situation."

While Cisco's numbers topped estimates, the company is still struggling to grow as the technology world rapidly shifts to cloud and subscription software and away from buying physical boxes. Cisco's stock price is down 27% this year, while the Nasdaq has dropped 29%.

Cisco's top business segment, which includes data-center networking switches, delivered $6.68 billion in revenue, up 12% from a year earlier.

Internet for the Future, its second-largest unit, saw revenue drop 5% to $1.3 billion. The division contains routed optical networking hardware the company picked up through its 2021 Acacia Communications acquisition.

Sales in the Collaboration segment, which features Webex, contributed $1.1 billion in revenue, down 2% year over year.

Cisco will hold its quarterly call with investors at 4:30 p.m. ET.
