What is Cisco?

Cisco Systems, Inc – an American transnational company, which develops and sells the network hardware. Strives to introduce the full specter of network equipment, and by this is gives the opportunity for the client to obtain all the necessary equipment directly from Cisco Systems.

The name Cisco – is a short from the name of the city San Francisco, California. Earlier when the founders were choosing the name, they often selected the names, which were already used. In the end, someone offered to name it „cisco“starting with small „c“(there already was a company named „CISCO“).

The name ciscoSystems (with small „c“) continued to be used in engineers community long after the company changed its name to Cisco Systems, Inc. Until now one can see a name of „ciscoSystems“ in IOS messages and error reports. The logo of the company represents the stylized image of the „Golden Gate Bridge“

One of the leading companies in the world specializing in high technology field, in the beginning was dealing only with corporate routers. Cisko call itself a world leading company in the field of network technologies for the Internet.

Cisco systems created a multilevel branched certification system of the computer network engineers. Thankfully to the fact the systems tests not only check for the knowledge of Cisco products, but also for the knowledge of network technologies and protocols, many organizations, working with the equipment of different companies, acknowledge the value of Cisco professional certificates. Especially the CCIE certification is one of the most respectable in computer industry.

Leonard Bosack adapted many routing protocols, written by William Yeager, other worker, who began his work few year before Bosack came from the University of Pennsylvania, where he obtained the Bachelors degree.

Although Cisco was not the first company, which developed and sold routers, it also created first commercially successful multiprotocol router. This device allowed before incompatible computers to interact, even if they used different network protocols.

In 1990 Bosack and Lerner left the company with 170 million dollars, after the venture investors introduced the professional managers into the board.
