For its future projection, the computer company expects $3.73 to $3.78 in adjusted earnings per share and 9% to 10.5% revenue growth. These numbers are more than what analysts estimated.


However, it is not all smooth-sailing at Cisco as it admitted during the earnings call that its backlog of hardware and software increased during the quarter because of limited supply.


The Webex sector, which is mostly made up of its collaboration offerings, fell by 10%, which is lower than what analysts estimated. Although, it made up for this in its Secure business segment, which saw a 14% increase in revenue.


Cisco says that it is planning to restructure its real estate portfolio and bringing updates to its AppDynamics cloud software for application monitoring.
