(Newser) – As Cisco Systems continues to struggle, the computer-networking equipment maker plans to cut 2% of its workforce—around 1,300 jobs. Profits are down and shares fell 11% this year thanks in part to Europe's financial crisis and slower spending by corporate customers, Bloomberg notes. And an analyst says more cuts are likely. Last year, Cisco slashed 6,500 jobs and shuttered its Flip video camera unit.
