Nation's First CIO's Directive Benefits Cisco
US government agencies upgrade their public-facing websites and services.
After a directive from the US's first chief information officer, Vivek Kundra, requiring that all U.S. government agencies upgrade their public-facing websites and services, Cisco could see a big boost from the private sector. Many tech industry pioneers like Cisco, Google and Verizon are helping enterprises and individuals make sure that their applications and devices can handle IPv6 as the addresses for sending information over the internet for IPv4 will soon be exhausted.
"Ciscos leadership in IPv6 can give it an advantage to potentially leverage this new directive to drive market share gains across several product categories like routers and switches and fight off competition. This could have implications for greater market share for enterprise routers, which we included below, and could provide tailwinds to our our $24.04 Trefis price estimate."
