At Cisco customers come first and an integral part of our DNA is creating long-lasting customer partnerships and working with them 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.

From its roots, since its founding in 1984, Cisco has led the industry in designing innovative networking solutions related to information and communications technology.

Driving the evolution and transformational frontier of Industrial Networks, Cisco products and solutions provide a secure end-to-end connectivity, visibility, and manageability. They are designed to minimize power consumption, perform in harsh environments, and be deployed in compact spaces.
