“Cisco Chief Executive John Chambers in a conference call said the Internet is entering its second major phase, brought about by new technologies like social networking and online video. He said such trends will result in innovation and productivity increases for businesses, which will also be a boon for Cisco. “We believe there’s an opportunity to be an instant replay to what occurred for Cisco in the very early 1990s,” when the company experienced rapid growth, he said.”
