February 11, 2013

LONDON, February 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ –

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. The industry is also seeing consolidation as
companies are restructuring their 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 professionals have

expected to grow its earnings by 11 percent annually. The stock trades at Price/Earnings

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.

Aruba Network Banks on BYOD Trend

Aruba Network is trading a little off its 52-week high. The company engages in the
business of providing network access solutions to mobile enterprises and is likely to
capitalize on the growing trend of mobile usage. The company is set to announce its
quarterly results on February 21st and is expected to report good numbers. Be sure to read

introduced its Wireless LAN platform. The new offering will help Aruba Network to
capitalize on the growing Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) trend.
