Cisco is taking market share and not only boosted its dividend, but also explained how it was able to do so thanks to its increasing free cash flow.Cisco's strong results may put pressure on rival Juniper Networks (JNPR), said Cramer, but Cisco is a buy right here and shares will likely top $20 in the near future.
