CRAMER: WE'VE GOT A TREAT HERE. WE'VE GOT JOHN CHAMBERS AND I THINK THIS IS VERY BIG NEWS. SHARES OF CISCO JUST SLIGHTLY LOWER THIS MORNING AFTER THE NEWS THAT AFTER 20 YEARS IN THE JOB ONE OF THE LONGEST REIGNING CEOS IN THE BUSINESS, JOHN CHAMBERS PLANS TO STEP DOWN THIS COMING JULY. CHAMBERS STEERED THE COMPANY THROUGH ONE OF THE TOUGHEST TIMES EVER THE DOT-COM BUBBLE. CAME OUT ON THE OTHER SIDE. HE IS GOING TO REMAIN ON THE BOARD AND AS THE COMPANY'S EXECUTIVE CHAIRMAN, JOHN, I DON'T KNOW. WHEN I HEARD THIS I WAS ACTUALLY SAD. I REMEMBER WHEN YOU GOT THE JOB. WHERE DID TIME FLY HERE? WHAT IS GOING ON? JOHN?

CHAMBERS: I'M SORRY. I DIDN'T KNOW I WAS ON THE LINE, JIM. HOW YOU DOING?

CRAMER: HI JOHN I'M JUST SHOCKED TO SEE – I REMEMBER WHEN YOU CAME IN. THIS IS A TOUGH ONE TO SWALLOW FOR THOSE OF US IN THE BUSINESS A LONG TIME. SOMEHOW WE VIEWED YOU BEING THE CEO FOREVER. CLEARLY NOT THE CASE. YOU SAID THIS WOULD HAPPEN. GIVE US REFLECTIONS OVER THE 20 YEARS. BOY, HAS THE WORLD CHANGED.

CHAMBERS: JIM, IT'S BEEN TREMENDOUSLY EXCITING FROM A SHAREHOLDER PERSPECTIVE, THE TOTAL RETURN OF SHAREHOLDERS IS UP 1600%. SALES ARE UP DURING THAT 20 YEARS ABOUT 3400%. EARNINGS PER SHARE 3300%. WE CHANGED THE WORLD MANY WAYS WITH THE INTERNET. WE CONSTANTLY AS YOU SAID REINVENTED OURSELVES THROUGH CHALLENGES LIKE THE BUBBLE AND COME OUT EVEN STRONGER. INNOVATION ENGINES REALLY ON FIRE. IT'S ALL ABOUT OUR PEOPLE, INCLUDING THE NEXT CEO CHUCK ROBBINS WHO IS GOING TO BE AWESOME. WE'RE POSITIONED FOR THIS RUN ON DIGITAL COUNTRIES, DIGITAL CITIES DIGITAL COMPANIES MUCH LIKE WE WERE FOR THE INTERNET IN THE 1990S SO OUR FUTURE IS PROBABLY THE BRIGHTEST IT'S EVER BEEN. I FEEL TREMENDOUS ABOUT OUR FUTURE AT THIS POINT IN TIME.

CRAMER: GOT TO TELL YOU, THERE IS A MOMENT ON ONE OF THESE CONFERENCE CALLS YOU HAD WHERE CHUCK SAYS TO YOU JUST PAUSE AND ENJOY THE MOMENT. WHEN I SAW YOU LAST JOHN, YOU WERE DOING ANYTHING BUT PAUSING. YOU WERE MEETING WITH THE HEADS OF FRANCE AND GERMANY, BEING ABLE TO CREATE JOBS IN EUROPE. I THOUGHT THIS WAS A MOMENT WHERE YOU WERE THINKING, I CAN'T QUIT THIS JOB. I LOVE IT TOO MUCH.

CHAMBERS: JIM, I DO LOVE THE JOB, BUT ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT THINGS YOU DO AS A LEADER IS YOU BUILD A COMPANY THAT HAS ONE OF THE MOST SEAMLESS CEO TRANSITIONS AND THAT'S WHAT WE ARE DOING AS A COMPANY. WE HAD SIX CFOS, SEVEN HEADS OF SALES ALTHOUGH CHUCK WAS NUMBER SEVEN AND I WAS NUMBER TWO ON THAT, FIVE HEADS OF ENGINEERING. WE'LL MAKE THIS VERY SEAMLESS. I WILL BE MOVING TO EXECUTIVE CHAIRMAN, WHICH MEANS I'LL BE CHUCK'S WINGMAN WHERE HE WANTS ME IN TERMS OF KEY GOVERNMENT RELATIONS, DIGITIZING CITIES AND COUNTRIES, KEY STRATEGIC PARTNERS, ET CETERA. I LOVE WHAT I DO. IT'S TIME FOR CHUCK TO TAKE THE REINS AND I AM REALLY EXCITED ABOUT TURNING IT OVER TO HIM.

CRAMER: JOHN I THOUGHT I KNOW THIS IS A SEAMLESS TRANSITION, BUT WHEN I LISTENED TO CHUCK ON ONE OF THE CONFERENCE CALLS AN INTERNAL ONE, HE IS TALKING ABOUT WE CAN MOVE FASTER. I KNOW THAT'S NOT NECESSARILY A CRITICISM OF YOUR REGIME, BUT THIS GUY SOUNDED PRETTY TOUGH, I HAVE TO TELL YOU ON THE CONFERENCE CALL. AS IF TO SAY YOU KNOW WHAT THE OTHER GUYS ARE MOVING FAST, IT'S TIME FOR US TO BE ABLE TO REALLY OBLITERATE THE COMPETITION.

CHAMBERS: JIM, YOU SAID IT RIGHT. CHUCK IS A TREMENDOUS COMPETITOR. WE ARE VERY MUCH ALIKE IN THAT. I WOULD SAY MY STRENGTHS ARE VISION AND STRATEGY. CHUCK'S STRENGTHS ARE VERY MUCH UNDERSTANDING VISION AND STRATEGY. HE IS AN EXECUTION MACHINE. HE CAN AND WILL MOVE THE COMPANY FASTER. HE'LL MAKE IT MORE SEAMLESS ACROSS MANY OF OUR OPERATIONS, OUR MAJOR 18 PRODUCT CATEGORIES. HE'LL TAKE US TO FASTER GROWTH THAN I WOULD HAVE DONE. I THINK THE COMPANY'S IN GREAT HANDS. CHUCK WILL END UP BEING A VERY GREAT CEO.

QUINTANILLA: A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE INTERESTED IN YOUR FUTURE, SEPARATE FROM YOUR DUTIES AS EXECUTIVE CHAIRMAN. PEOPLE HAVE SUGGESTED PERHAPS THERE IS A FUTURE IN POLITICS. YOU DID SOME WORK FOR McCAIN. HOW INTERESTED ARE YOU IN THAT?

CHAMBERS: WELL, CARL, AT HEART I'M A PERSON WHO VIEWS POLITICS AGNOSTICALLY. I THINK TECHNOLOGY CAN CHANGE EVERY COUNTRY REGARDLESS OF POLITICAL PARTY. I AM A PROUD MODERATE REPUBLICAN. BUT I LIKE DEMOCRATS, AS WELL. IF I WERE TO SAY WHAT I'LL DO IN THE FUTURE, YOU'LL SEE ME MORE GIVING BACK MORE IN THE TEACHING ROLE, HELPING START-UPS GO PUBLIC, ET CETERA. I ENJOY COACHING. I THINK YOU'LL SEE ME DO THE EXECUTIVE CHAIRMAN ROLE. YOU'LL SEE ME INVOLVED IN START-UPS AND GIVING BACK AND TEACHING. THEN YOU'LL SEE ME SPENDING MORE TIME WITH MY FAMILY.

FABER: I'M CURIOUS HOW YOU SEE YOUR ROLE EVOLVING --

CHAMBERS: HEY, DAVID.

FABER: HEY, JOHN. IN TERMS OF WORKING WITH YOUR NEW CEO. YOU MENTIONED THE WORDS WINGMAN. DO YOU THINK THAT TRANSITION IS GOING TO BE HARD FOR YOU GIVEN HOW LONG YOU'VE BEEN DOING THIS ONE JOB? AND WHEN YOU THINK ABOUT IT, EXECUTIVE CHAIRMAN IS NOT AN INSIGNIFICANT JOB HERE. YOU ARE STILL CHAIRMAN OF THE BOARD. HOW MUCH TIME IS IT GOING TO TAKE?

CHAMBERS: PROBABLY THREE QUESTIONS. FIRST OF ALL CHUCK WILL BE THE CEO. HE WILL MAKE THE DECISIONS, PERIOD. THAT'S WHAT YOU WOULD EXPECT. SECONDLY IN TERMS OF TIME, PROBABLY 50 TO 60% OF MY TIME. THIRD, CHUCK WILL SET WHERE I CAN REALLY HELP HIM MAKE A DIFFERENCE. I WILL BE HIS ADVISOR AND BEHIND HIM ALL THE WAY. HE WAS THE UNANIMOUS PICK OF OUR BOARD. ONCE AGAIN I THINK HE HAS ALL THE ATTRIBUTES IN TERMS OF BUILDING GREAT TEAMS, GETTING GROWTH AND HE WILL BE ABLE TO ANALYZE HOW THINGS WORK TOGETHER AND SPEEDING THAT MACHINE UP LIKE JIM SAID, I THINK WE'LL GO FASTER UNDER CHUCK. I THINK IT WILL BE VERY, VERY GOOD.

FABER: ONE QUESTION FROM ME WHICH IS FOLLOWING UP ON WHAT YOU JUST SAID. YOU SEEM CONFIDENT THAT GROWTH CAN GO FASTER UNDER HIM. WHY IS THAT THE CASE?

CHAMBERS: I THINK IT'S THREE THINGS. IF I WERE TO OUTLINE THREE YEARS AGO WHEN WE STARTED TO TURN THE COMPANY AROUND, ONE MORE TIME, JIM YOU SAID IT RIGHT, WE'VE DONE THIS FIVE TIMES. MY IDEAL SCENARIO WOULD HAVE BEEN THREE YEARS LATER TO HAVE GREAT MOMENTUM IN THE MARKET, DO HAVE A STRONG NEW CEO COMING IN, AND TO BE ON THE SECOND CUSP OF THE NEXT GENERATION OF THE INTERNET. DIGITIZATION IS COMING AT US LIKE A ROCKET. WE ARE IN CLEAR LEADERSHIP POSITION THERE YOU ARE GOING TO DIGITIZE COUNTRIES THE BASE OF DOING THAT IS THE INTERNET OF EVERYTHING. IT WILL GET INNOVATION AND JOB CREATION GOING FASTER. WE SUDDENLY ARE MUCH MORE RELEVANT AGAIN, DAVID. WE ARE IN A POSITION WHERE HEADS OF COUNTRIES ARE COMING HERE. HEADS OF COMPANIES. WE ARE SPEAKING ALL THE TIME AT THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS ON HOW COMPANIES BECOME DIGITAL AND HOW CISCO COULD BE THEIR PARTNER IN THAT. WE ARE AT THE FRONT END OF A DECADE RUN IN TERMS OF NEXT GENERATION OF THE INTERNET. WE'LL LEAD IT LIKE WE DID LAST ONE.

CRAMER: YOU VIOLATED YOUR RULES. YOU ARE REPORTING NEXT WEEK, AT THE END YOU SAID I'M NOT SUPPOSED TO DO THIS, BUT REITERATING MY GUIDANCE. THAT MEANS YOU'VE GOT GREAT GROWTH IN SWITCHING. YOU SEE A CONTINUAL TURN IN EUROPE. IT MEANS THAT YOU THINK THE BETTER TIMES ARE GOING TO CONTINUE IN TERMS OF NOT CARING ABOUT A STRONG DOLLAR OR WEAK DOLLAR I KNOW YOUR STUFF IS PRICED IN DOLLARS. I'M TAKING THAT REITERATION TO MEAN YOU ARE GOING TO HAVE THE SAME PLANE IN TERMS OF EACH MONTH BEING BETTER WHEN WE HEAR NEXT WEEK.

CHAMBERS: JIM, YOU ARE VERY GOOD AT GETTING ME TO CROSS THAT LINE. I AM GOING TO COME ON YOUR SHOW AND DISCUSS OUR NEW ADVERTISING CAMPAIGN LIKE YOU TEASED ME THE OTHER DAY. IN TERMS OF NEXT WEEK, WE'LL WATCH TO SEE WHERE NEXT WEEK GOES. AS YOU WOULD EXPECT IN A CEO TRANSITION ROLE, I WANT IT TO BE SMOOTH. I'M NOT GOING TO LET EXPECTATIONS GET AHEAD ON WHAT CHUCK CAN DELIVER ON. I FEEL GOOD ABOUT OUR QUARTER AS WE GO FORWARD. MOST IMPORTANT I FEEL GOOD ABOUT THE NEXT YEAR AND NEXT TEN YEARS. WE ARE GET THE BEGINNING OF THE NEXT CUSP OF THE INTERNET AND CISCO WILL LEAD IT.

CRAMER: YOU'VE GOT A GREAT TWO-MINUTE VIDEO OF WHAT THE INTERNET OF EVERYTHING MEANS. IF YOU GO TO THE WEBSITE IT'S A CARTOON. FOUR TIMES WHAT COMES UP IS CYBER SECURITY. WHAT IS THE EDGE CISCO CAN BRING TO THE ENTERPRISE THE OTHER GUYS DON'T HAVE?

CHAMBERS: WELL, THE DIFFERENCE WHAT CISCO CAN DO FOR SECURITY IS INSTEAD OF BEING SILOED PRODUCTS LIKE OUR PEERS, WE CAN GO WITH AN ARCHITECTURE THAT COMBINES A SOURCE FIRE, IT COMBINES FIREWALLS AND MALICIOUS APPLICATION BEHAVIOR, ET CETERA. AND THE NETWORK ACTUALLY BECOMES DEFENSE FOR THIS SO WE HAVE A CHANCE TO DO THIS ARCHITECTURALLY. IT'S A PERFECT MARKET FOR US A WHOLE BUNCH OF PLAYERS. WE ARE THE LARGEST PLAYER AT 7.5%. WE HAD THE DIFFERENTIATION OF INTELLIGENCE IN THE NETWORK WE CAN TAKE THIS ONE TO 20 OR EVEN 40% OF THE MARKET. IT'S A HUGE GROWTH MARKET. YOU'LL SEE CHUCK DO THAT.

QUINTANILLA: IS THERE A SENSE OVER THE NEXT CHAPTERS FOR CISCO THAT THE COMPANY WILL BECOME MORE CONSUMER FOCUSED THAN ENTERPRISE FOCUSED? IF YOU TALK ABOUT THINGS LIKE THE INTERNET OF THINGS THAT, LENDS ITSELF TO SOMETHING THAT MIGHT BE IN THE HANDS OF YOUR EVERYDAY PERSON, NOT JUST YOUR I.T. MANAGER.

CHAMBERS: THAT COMES BACK TO A DECISION FOR CHUCK TO MAKE. WE GOT BURNED ONCE ON THAT BEFORE. I THINK YOU'LL SEE US BE BUSINESS-TO-BUSINESS OR BUSINESS-TO-CONSUMER. WORKING WITH SERVICE PROVIDERS OR RETAILERS TO GET TO THE CONSUMER. NOT CONSUMER-TO-CONSUMER. THAT'S A BUSINESS THAT WE TRIED THAT ONCE BEFORE AND MISSED. I WOULDN'T TAKE IT OFF THE TABLE, BUT I THINK THE MARGINS, THE SUSTAINABLE DIFFERENTIATION, GOAL HAVING 40% LESS MARKET SHARE BEING NUMBER ONE AND NUMBER TWO NOT COMPETE MUCH BETTER IN A BUSINESS COMMUNITY.

CRAMER: YOU TALK ABOUT REINVENTING THE COMPANY. THERE WAS A PERIOD A COUPLE OF YEARS AGO WHERE PEOPLE FELT THE WHITE BOX WAS GOING TO DO BETTER. THERE WAS A PERIOD WHERE PEOPLE THOUGHT YOU DIDN'T HAVE ENOUGH SOFTWARE I READ A BUNCH OF THE ARTICLES. WERE YOU SURPRISED AT SOME OF THE -- THE COMMENT WAS CISCO HAD FALLEN BEHIND? MY TAKE IS THE REASON WHY YOU HAD SUCH A GOOD LAST QUARTER BECAUSE CISCO LEAPFROGGED AHEAD OF THE GUYS WHO WERE BAD MOUTHING YOUR COMPANY AND FAILED TO EXECUTE VERSUS YOU.

CHAMBERS: JIM, I THINK YOU GAVE ME A SOFTBALL ON THAT AND THANK YOU FOR THAT. 4 1/2 YEARS AGO WE SAID WHITE BOXES WOULD BE OUR COMPETITOR. WE BUILT ARCHITECTURES TYING PRODUCTS TOGETHER WITH SERVICES AND APPLICATIONS. WE ARE BEATING THE WHITE BOX COMPETITORS VERY WELL MUCH LOWER COST OF OWNERSHIP. TRANSITIONED THIS TO OUTCOME BASE WHICH MEANS CUSTOMERS PAY A PREMIUM FOR IT WE EMBRACE SOFTWARE DEFINED NETWORKS RATHER THAN IT BEING A CHALLENGE WE ARE THE CLEAR LEADER THERE ONCE AGAIN, WE TOOK OUR CHALLENGERS, UNDERSTOOD WHAT THEY DID WELL THEN JUST OUT EXECUTED THEM, GREAT MOMENTUM IN BOTH CATEGORIES. WE IDENTIFY THE MARKET TRANSITIONS WELL AHEAD OF OUR PEERS. WE USUALLY BEAT THEM ON THE FRONT END. IF WE MISS IT, WE GO ACQUIRE SOMEBODY AND BEAT THEM ON THE BACK END.

CRAMER: LET ME GIVE YOU MORE OF A HARDBALL. WHEN I READ WHAT YOU ARE DOING ENTERPRISE, GLOBAL, WEB, CLOUD, THIS IS WHAT IBM TELLS ME THEY ARE DOING, SALES FORCE TELLS ME THEY ARE DOING. WHAT MOST OF THESE CONSULTANT COMPANIES TELL ME THEY ARE DOING. WHAT IS THE DIFFERENTIATION? EVERYONE SEEMS TO BE DOING THE SAME THING.

CHAMBERS: THE DIFFERENTIATION IS WE MOVED OUR COMPANY TO PURELY OUTCOME BASE RESULTS. YOU'LL SEE THAT IN TERMS OF OVER THE NEXT YEAR OR TWO IN OUR ENTERPRISE AND COMMERCIAL MARKET. WE COMBINE EVERY ONE OF THOSE, THE NUMBER ONE POSITION IN CLOUD, THE NUMBER ONE POSITION IN THE DATA CENTER WITH COMPUTE COMING TOGETHER, WITH NETWORKS COMING TOGETHER AS STORAGE. NUMBER ONE POSITION NOW IN SDN AND APPLICATIONS INFRASTRUCTURE, NUMBER ONE POSITION IN SECURITY, NUMBER ONE POSITION OF INTERNET EVERYTHING. WE COMBINE THOSE TO GET BUSINESS OUTCOMES. THAT'S WHY A COUNTRY LIKE FRANCE ALIGNS WITH CISCO FROM THE PRESIDENT TO THE PRIME MINISTER TO THE MINISTRY OF THE ECONOMY TO MINISTRY OF THE DEFENSE. IT'S WHY ISRAEL IS LARGELY CISCO END-TO-END ARCHITECTURALLY. IT'S WHY WALMART OR GE PREFERS CISCO AS THEIR STRATEGIC PARTNER AS THEY MAKE THESE TRANSITIONS. IT'S WHY SERVICE PROVIDERS LIKE A VERIZON OR COMCAST OR CENTURY LINK ALIGN WITH CISCO RATHER THAN INDIVIDUAL PLAYERS WITHIN IT. THIS IS A MARKET SET UP FOR US IN TERMS OF ARCHITECTURAL PLAYS. YOU'LL SEE US BRING THE HOME THE NEXT FIVE, TEN YEARS.

CRAMER: IN DEFERENCE TO YOU BECAUSE OF 20 YEARS, WANT TO TALK ABOUT WHAT YOU PLAN TO DO, WHICH IS, I KNOW THERE IS A STANFORD FELLOW ON YOUR BOARD. YOU WANT TO TEACH. YOU'VE BEEN ADAMANT THE UNITED STATES HAS FALLEN BEHIND IN DIGITIZATION. IS IT POSSIBLE -- NOT SAYING POLITICS, NECESSARILY, BUT IS IT POSSIBLE YOU BECOME A CRUSADER FOR THE UNITED STATES TO BE ABLE TO CATCH UP TO WHAT YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT, WHICH IS CHINA, FRANCE, GERMANY? THESE COUNTRIES YOU SAY, SOUTH KOREA, ARE ALL AHEAD OF THE UNITED STATES RIGHT NOW.

CHAMBERS: I THINK YOU HIT ON THE MOST IMPORTANT ISSUE FOR OUR COUNTRY WE USED TO TALK ABOUT THE INTERNET BEING THE HIGHWAYS OF THE FUTURE. IT'S NOW HOW YOU DIGITIZE EVERY ASPECT OF BUSINESS, EVERY ASPECT OF GOVERNMENT, EVERY ASPECT OF OUR HOME LIFE. WE ARE BEHIND EUROPE AND WE ARE BEHIND ASIA. I AM GOING TO INVEST A FAIR AMOUNT OF MY TIME AND CAPITAL ON TRYING TO GET BOTH THE CURRENT LEADERS IN CONGRESS AND THE ADMINISTRATION, PLUS THE NEXT GENERATION OF LEADERS THAT COME IN IN 1 1/2 YEARS TO GET OUR COUNTRY BACK INTO A LEADERSHIP ROLE. THIS IS SO IMPORTANT IN TERMS OF START-UPS. THIS IS SO IMPORTANT IN TERMS OF JOB CREATION. IT'S SO IMPORTANT IN TERMS OF PER CAPITA INCOME. AND PERHAPS WHAT HAPPENED DURING THE '90s WHERE PRESIDENT CLINTON FOR SIX YEARS GREW GDP 16% PLUS, REAL INCOME 16% PLUS, 22 MILLION JOBS. THE NEXT PRESIDENT OF OUR COUNTRY, I THINK, CAN DO THE SAME THING REGARDLESS OF POLITICS. IT WILL BE AROUND THE DIGITAL AGE WHERE PRESIDENT CLINTON DID AROUND THE INFORMATION AGE. YES, I WOULD LOVE TO BE PART OF THAT.

CRAMER: YOU OFTEN TALKED ABOUT THE GROWTH OF INTERNET OF THINGS. PEOPLE FELT YOU WERE BEING WAY TOO OPTIMISTIC. IT TURNS OUT YOU WERE PESSIMISTIC IN TERMS OF THE GROWTH AND THE SIZE OF THE MARKET, WEREN'T YOU?

CHAMBERS: YES, I WAS. WE SAID $19 TRILLION IN PROFITS OVER THE NEXT DECADE. IT WILL BE A NUMBER MUCH HIGHER THAN THAT. McKINSEY SAID YOU'RE PROBABLE I OFF BY THREE, FIVE FOLD ON THAT NEW. IT WILL TRANSFORM EVERY COMPANY. THIS IS THE KEY TAKE AWAY, JIM. IF COMPANIES DON'T CHANGE TO A DIGITAL COMPANY, THEY WILL DIE. THIS IS ABOUT YOU DISRUPT YOURSELF, YOU DISRUPT YOUR MARKET OR GET LEFT BEHIND. THAT IS WHAT WE'LL SEE OUT OF OUR ADVERTISING. YOU'LL SEE US DRIVE THAT BACK WHERE CISCO IS THE PARTNER THAT CAN TAKE YOU THERE.
