in brief Cisco has decided to raise the prices of all the products on its Australian price list by 9.2 per cent.
The telecommunications equipment giant said that the decision to do so came from a business review process that it undertakes periodically. The process takes into consideration a number of factors, including the currency exchange rate, but the company did not elaborate on the other considerations, citing business confidentiality.
"In the past, this process has also lead to reduced prices when certain conditions are met," the company said in a statement.
As reported by Delimiter, a notice was sent to customers a month before the planned change, emphasising that quotes from the company and its channel partners would only remain valid until 6 July, with the price rise to come into effect three days later on 9 July.
