Cisco is cutting a further 1,100 jobs as the vendor goes deeper in its attempts to restructure its business.
The losses are in addition to last August's announcement that it was cutting 5,500 roles, the equivalent of around seven percent of its workforce.
Cisco made the announcement as it reported its third quarter results, in which total sales dipped 0.5 percent to $11.94 billion but operating income increased 6.2 percent to $3.17 billion.
The job cuts will cost Cisco a further $150 million on top of its original forecast of $700 million in restructuring charges.
The US-based vendor was also gloomy about the months ahead and predicted its fourth quarter revenue would fall by between four and six percent.
Chuck Robbins, CEO, Cisco, said: "I am pleased with the progress we are making on the multi-year transformation of our business.
"The network is becoming even more critical to business success as our customers add billions of new connections to their enterprises.
"We are laser focused on delivering unparalleled value through highly secure, software-defined, automated and intelligent infrastructure."
Kelly Kramer, CFO, Cisco, added: "We executed well in Q3, delivering $11.9 billion in total revenue, while driving solid profitability and cash generation as we deliver on our strategic priorities."
There was no mention of Cisco's partnership with Ericsson in the Q3 results.
The tie-up appears to have hit rocky waters, with Ericsson executive Rima Qureshi, who was running the partnership, dramatically leaving the Swedish vendor earlier this year to "pursue another opportunity in the industry".
She told European Communications in February that the companies were both working to overcome "confusion" regarding overlapping portfolios.
