Cisco Celebrates 20th Anniversary
In December 1984, Cisco Systems was founded out of the collective imagination of a group of Stanford University computer scientists who worked to enable disparate networks to talk with each other and share information reliably. In the last 20 years, Cisco has helped lead a revolution in communications. Today, Cisco Internet Protocol-based (IP) networking solutions are the foundation of networks that are an essential part of business, education, government and home communications. This year, Cisco celebrates its anniversary by looking toward the future--continuing its tradition of innovation, business best practices, and social responsibility.
Come celebrate with us.
