Cisco's Odd Johnny is out!

Cisco's top 9-year Tandberg veteran is replaced by top 21-year Symantec veteran.

Hershey, PA:   Wed, 11/7/12 - 11:59pm    View comments

Rowan TrollopeOdd Johnny WingeThe top Tandberg executive at Cisco, Odd Johnny Winge, has been replaced by the 21-year Symantec veteran, Rowan Trollope. Late today Cisco's Marthin De Beer blogged:

"It is with some sadness that Cisco says farewell to OJ Winge, who has decided to leave Cisco for personal reasons. I want to sincerely thank OJ for all he has done to ensure a thoughtful and well planned transition, and for his leadership in setting the collaboration vision and strategy. I wish him well with the next phase of his career."

Meanwhile earlier today Network World's Cisco Expert Jim Duffy blogged:

"Cisco's first fiscal 2013 quarter is expected to miss the mark. Citing weak enterprise and flat service provider spending... Deutsche Bank cites 'below seasonal bookings and rollout trends' in... video collaboration... Oppenheimer cites decelerating demand in the US based on channel, supplier and competitor comments on muted spending..."

Cheaper and more flexible desktop PC-based systems are taking market share from the room-based videoconferencing systems that can cost thousands of dollars according to with Gartner analyst Robert Mason stating:

"Videoconferencing is facing a lower-growth future over the next five years, with erstwhile high-growth segments such as immersive telepresence and dedicated video infrastructure going into decline. The dedicated board rooms and the large multiscreen systems are showing less demand in preference."
