Since being founded in 1984, Cisco has gone on to become the worldwide leader in IT that helps companies seize the opportunities of tomorrow by proving that amazing things can happen when you connect the previously unconnected. At Cisco customers come first and an integral part of their DNA is creating long-lasting customer partnerships and working with customers to identify their needs and provide solutions that support their success.

The concept of solutions being driven to address specific customer challenges has been with Cisco since its inception. Husband and wife Len Bosack and Sandy Lerner, both working for Stanford University, wanted to email each other from their respective offices located in different buildings but were unable to due to technological shortcomings. A technology had to be invented to deal with disparate local area protocols; and as a result of solving their challenge - the multi-protocol router was born.

Cisco's product portfolio also includes:

  • Switches
  • Storage networking
  • Data centre management and automation
  • Optical networking
  • And more!
