After killing the Flip camera business, Cisco might cut off more acquired business units.
Cisco launched a big restructuring program to get back on track early last month. As part of refocusing on the core values, Cisco shut down the Flip camcorder division. The Register now has a report that Cisco is thinking about cutting off Linksys and webEx.
The consumer network device maker Linksys was bought by Cisco for $500m back in 2003. WebEx, a conferencing service provider, was a much more high-profile purchase at $2.9 billion. The rumor suggests that Cisco is trying to find buyers and not just shut these business units down as they did with the Flip.
