    The new job cuts come only months after the enterprise technology company cut 5,500 jobs — seven percent of its workforce, as CNBC reported.

    The announcement came as the company reported better-than-expected earnings for the fiscal third quarter, but worse-than-feared forward guidance. Shares fell more than 5 percent after hours.

    Cisco said last year it plans to reinvest the savings from its restructuring plan into "key priority areas such as security, IoT, collaboration, next-generation data center and cloud."
