     Re: Cisco Systems, Inc.
         Form S-3 Registration Statement Filed on September 23, 1997
         File No. 333-36197

Ladies and Gentlemen:

     Pursuant to Rule 477 of Regulation C of the Securities Act of 1933, as
amended (the "Securities Act"), Cisco Systems, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the
"Registrant"), hereby respectfully makes application to the Securities and
Exchange Commission (the "Commission") to (1) withdraw the above-referenced
registration statement, together with all exhibits, amendments and supplements
thereto (the "Registration Statement"), and (2) deregister any shares identified
in the Registration Statement which have not been sold to date under the terms
described therein, with such application to be approved effective as of the date
hereof or at the earliest practical date thereafter. The Registration Statement
was first filed with the Commission on September 23, 1997.

     The Registration Statement was filed by the Registrant on behalf of its
securityholders with whom Registrant entered into a registration rights
agreement in connection with the Registrant's acquisition of DAGAZ Technologies,
Inc. ("DAGAZ"). The securities which were the subject of the Registration
Statement were distributed by the Registrant to the former stockholders of DAGAZ
in connection with the acquisition. The acquisition took place over two (2)
years ago therefore the shares registered in the Registration Statement no
longer need to be registered and are freely tradeable pursuant to Rule 144(k) of
the Securities Act of 1933, as amended. By withdrawing the Registration
Statement at this time, the Registrant seeks to save the expense associated with
maintaining the effectiveness of a registration statement.

     Kindly direct any questions you have regarding Registrant's request to
withdraw the Registration Statement to the undersigned at (408) 526-4000.

                                       Very truly yours,

                                       /s/ Scott D. Lester
                                       Scott D. Lester, Esq.
                                       Legal Counsel
