Cisco is planning to cut thousands of jobs as it restructures its business, according to a report. 

The San Jose, California-based network giant is trying to turn its focus on high-growth areas, sources familiar with the matter told Reuters. However, the exact number of layoffs hasn’t been determined yet, a source said.

As of July 2023, the company had approximately 84,900 employees globally, according to the company’s annual report.

According to a report from Challenger, Gray & Christmas, companies planned 82,307 job cuts in January. That’s up 136% from the prior month and the second-highest layoff total for the month of January in data since 2009.
