Arista Networks has agreed to pay Cisco $400 million to get Cisco to settle its lawsuits, which will put the usually profitable networking upstart into the red.

But Arista investors are thrilled with the news while Cisco investors are yawning.

Insiders had previously told Business Insider they thought Cisco under CEO Chuck Robbins would have agreed to a settlement even sooner.

When Cisco CEO Chuck Robbins took over the job three years ago, insiders speculated to Business Insider that one thing he would likely do is settle the litigation between Cisco and its most hated rival, Arista Networks, a series of lawsuits that begun under his predecessor, John Chambers.

Cisco CEO Chuck Robbins talks software-defined networking at Mobile World Congress.

Here at Mobile World Congress there s plenty of talk about the future of networks, with much of that talk focused on software, particularly Software Defined Networking.

While SDN is a key talking point it doesn t spell the end of hardware, at least according to Cisco CEO Chuck Robbins.

At a press conference attended by CBR, the CEO said: The internet and the traffic that runs on the internet – I think it s increasing, and I don t think that increased traffic loads is going to result in a lack of a need for high performance hardware.

I think there will be plenty of use cases where software can absolutely provide solutions, but there will forever be tremendous cases where you need high performance integrated systems, and to me SDN does not obviate the need for hardware, it simply gives you the capability to run this infrastructure and these networks much more effectively and efficiently in an automated way.

Yvette Kanouff, SVP/GM, Service Provider Business at Cisco followed the comments from Robbins by saying that the company is definitely looking at everything it can move out of the box and that doesn t need the box, so that the company can maximise performance.

Switchzilla's annual gabfest goes over old ground on day one

Cisco Live CEO keynotes at big vendors' annual gabfests are evangelical events, and Cisco's Chuck Robbins didn't disappoint on that score as he opened this year's Cisco Live.

But if customers expected a big reveal of new products or strategies, they would have come away disappointed.

Sure, Robbins name-checked the stars of the Cisco portfolio – its cloud initiative with Google launched last October, its SD-WAN work, its Tetration cloud workload protection platform, its security initiatives, the successful introduction of its Catalyst 9000 platform, the DevNet program – but aside from promises that Switchzilla would continue to evolve, there was precious little to tell us where the next year will take products.

Cisco's Google partnership is a case in point: it was important enough that Robbins brought Diane Green, CEO of Google Cloud, to the stage.

Together they discussed the Truly Awesome Scale of Google's infrastructure, and the way the partnership lets enterprises run hybrid clouds.

Four Cisco Systems executives who led spin-in ventures that became important parts of the company have resigned.

The move was first reported by the Wall Street Journal.

Engineers Mario Mazzola, Prem Jain and Luca Cafiero, and marketer Soni Jiandani, nicknamed MPLS after their first initials, started several companies with Cisco s backing that later were absorbed back into the networking giant.

More than once, Cisco invested in startups spearheaded by MPLS and then acquired those companies.

That was under former CEO John Chambers, who stepped down last year after 20 years leading the company.

He is still Cisco s chairman, and MPLS continued to report to Chambers after Robbins succeeded him, sources told Network World last August.

Cisco suffered a decline in revenue for Q1 2018, weighed down by ongoing weakness in its switch and router business.

A recent reorganisation of Cisco's reporting structure means switches and routers are now a single reporting line called "Infrastructure Platforms"; the others are "Applications", "Security", the snappily-named "Other Products", and "Services".

CEO Chuck Robbins said the company hoped to revive the limp switch-and-router business by injecting the products with intent-based networking, a technology that automatically tunes networks so they perform as close to desired baselines as is possible.

He also reported some easy wins in networking hardware, as "customers continue to shift to 10 gig, 40 gig and 100 gig architectures and embrace multi-cloud adoption."

Robbins was bullish about Cisco's security business, lauded its eight per cent revenue growth and pointed out that 42 per cent growth in deferred revenue suggests a rosy future.

The CEO also talked up the acquisition of Broadsoft, which he said should put a rocket under Cisco's software business.
