As the joint federal investigation of Cisco network hardware counterfeiting continues, another person has been targeted and brought down and convicted of illegal trafficking of counterfeit equipment.

A 49-year-old man has become the latest person brought down by a federal investigation targeting people trafficking in counterfeit Cisco network hardware.
