By Bill Rigby SEATTLE (Reuters) - Chuck Robbins, the veteran salesman chosen by Cisco Systems Inc to succeed legendary CEO John Chambers, must prove he has the technical knowledge to chart a new course and lead the network equipment maker into the new world of cloud-based computing. Cisco, like tech stalwarts Hewlett-Packard Co and IBM, is trying to branch out from its core business into software, security and datacenters to capitalize on the explosion of remote computing. "He's going to run the company well as a caretaker, he's got good business acumen, said Glenn O'Donnell, an analyst at tech research firm Forrester "The question is whether he has vision. I don't think anybody yet knows the answer." Cisco is the clear market leader in selling network equipment to companies, controlling about half of a $38 billion global market, more than four times the total of the next two rivals combined, HP and China's Huawei, according to Gartner.
