If it's primarily sales force staff like the last layoff, I don't
really think it has anything to do with competition, just margins.
You forgot to mention that profits are up and they are still cutting.
 However, Cisco is one of the few places that has something like a
2-4% attrition per year, including all the acquisitions.  (ie. the
slackers at the bottom never bother to leave, so forced house-cleaning
is necessary).
