Everything is Connected
Cisco helps every individual and organization transform how we connect and collaborate through connected technology solutions.
Cisco Systems traces its root to a couple who works at Stanford University. Sandy Lerner and her husband, Leonard Bosack, founded the company in December 1984.
The first product is the Cisco IOS. It is inspired by a unique Stanford University-owned technology called the Blue Box. Moreover, it is a router that links all computer networks in the school. It is locally developed and improved by a team of students and staff, including Bosack.
