Beginner's guide to SSL certificates

Cisco yesterday said it is on track to meet Wall Street estimates for 13 per cent growth in its current financial year. Analysts expect revenues of $24.81bn - $22.05bn for FY2005, which ends next July.

The networking giant forecasts compound annual revenue growth of 10 - 15 per cent between 2004 and 2008. Dennis Powell, Cisco's CFO, anticipates growth towards the upper end, based on investment on advanced networking technology and expansion into new markets. He acknowledges margins are under pressure but says the firm can maintain growth targets through productivity gains and by focusing on systems - rather than product - sales. ®
