Networking companies are evolving to stay relevant in changing tech scenario.
These companies are using different tactics for this purpose. Even major
companies like Cisco Systems Inc. (NASDAQ: CSCO) are struggling to cope with
fast changing dynamics, with their stock prices showing only marginal growth.

businesses to streamline their operations. Increased competition is also eating
away the margins, prompting the companies to take cost-control measures. Growing
trend of Bring Your Own Devices policy being adopted by enterprises is going to
have major impact on the network solution companies, where industry players like
Aruba Networks Inc. (NASDAQ:  ARUN) are expected to benefit. StockCall

Cisco Systems is getting rid of its non-core assets as it sold its Linksys home
networking division to Belkin. The sale will help the company to mobilize
resources towards its better performing units. It is also looking to gain
foothold in cloud market with the acquisition of Meraki. Cisco Systems also
faces stiff competition in its enterprise segment especially with Oracle's
latest acquisition of Acme Packet.

Cisco Systems is scheduled to announce its quarterly numbers on  February 13th 
and is likely to post positive results. Its stock currently has good dividend
yield of nearly 3 percent, making it a good income investment opportunity. With
its low dividend payout ratio, it is expected that the company will keep the
dividend stream steady.

will help Aruba Network to capitalize on the growing Bring Your Own Device
(BYOD) trend.
