Data centre and switching play key roles in Cisco's Q2

Data centre and enterprise sales helped drive Cisco's better than expected Q2, but a major product transition is crimping switch sales. Data centre was a highlight in the quarter, and accounted for 59% of Cisco's product revenue. Enterprise order growth was in the high 20% range, while orders overall were up 8%.
