Cisco is committed to making its products, services, Web sites, and documentation accessible and usable by people with disabilities, either by design or through compatible use with assistive technology.Dedication to customer success is the foundation of the company?€™s culture. Cisco integrates methods for learning and responding to customer needs into its business practices and combines these with quality improvement tools and processes in order to deliver the greatest value to customers.

Different Certifications Given by Cisco are as follows

CCNA certification (Cisco Certified Network Associate) indicates a foundation in and apprentice knowledge of networking. CCNA certified professionals can install, configure, and operate LAN, WAN, and dial access services for small networks (100 nodes or fewer), including but not limited to use of these protocols: IP, IGRP, Serial, Frame Relay, IP RIP, VLANs, RIP, Ethernet, Access Lists.CCNA (Cisco Certified Network Associate) certification is valid for three years. Certificate holders have a number of options for renewing their valid CCNA certification.It is important to note that it is not possible to renew a certification after the expiration date has passed.All Cisco certification exams are administered through Cisco Test Delivery Partners, Prometric and Pearson VUE, worldwide.

Cisco Certified Network Proffessional (CCNP) certification validates a network professional's ability to install, configure and troubleshoot converged local and wide area networks with 100 to 500 or more nodes. Network Professionals who achieve the CCNP have demonstrated the knowledge and skills required to manage the routers and switches that form the network core, as well as edge applications that integrate voice, wireless, and security into the network.

The Cisco Certified Security Professional (CCSP) certification validates advanced knowledge and skills required to secure Cisco networks. With a CCSP, a network professional demonstrates the skills required to secure and manage network infrastructures to protect productivity and reduce costs. The CCSP curriculum emphasizes secure VPN management, Cisco Adaptive Security Device Manager (ASDM), PIX firewall, Adaptive Security Appliance (ASA), Intrusion Prevention Systems (IPS), Cisco Security Agent (CSA), and techniques to combine these technologies in a single, integrated network security solution.

The CCDP certification indicates advanced or journeyman knowledge of network design. With a CCDP, a network professional can design routed and switched networks involving LAN, WAN, and dial access services, applying modular design practices and making sure the whole solution responds optimally to the business and technical needs and is designed to be highly available.

Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert (CCIE) Cisco's highest level of professional certification.CCIE is the Industry Most Respected IT Certification.For over ten years, CCIE has identified networking professionals with the highest level of expertise. Less than three percent of all Cisco certified professionals earn their CCIE.

Cisco Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: CSCO, SEHK: 4333) is a global company headquartered in San Jose, California, that designs and sells networking and communications technology and services under three brands: Cisco, Linksys, and Scientific Atlanta.

Corporate history
A Cisco ASM/2-32EM router deployed at CERN in 1987.
One of the many buildings on the Cisco Systems campus in San Jose

Len Bosack and Sandy Lerner (Bachelor of Science from California State University, Chico, Masters in Econometrics from Claremont University, Masters in Statistics and Computer Science from Stanford University), a married couple that worked in computer operations staff at Stanford University, founded Cisco Systems in 1984. Bosack adapted multiple-protocol router software originally written by William Yeager, another staff employee who had begun the work years before Bosack arrived from the University of Pennsylvania, where Bosack had received his Bachelor's degree.

While Cisco was not the first company to develop and sell a router (a device that forwards computer traffic from one network to another), it did create the first commercially successful multi-protocol router to allow previously incompatible computers to communicate using different network protocols. As the Internet Protocol (IP) has become a standard, the importance of multi-protocol routing as a function has declined. Today, Cisco's largest routers are marketed to route primarily IP packets and MPLS frames.

In 1990 the company went public and was listed on the Nasdaq stock exchange. Bosack and Lerner walked away from the company with $170 million [3], and later divorced.

In late March 2000, at the height of the dot-com boom, Cisco was the most valuable company in the world, with a market capitalisation of more than 500 billion dollars [4][5]. In 2006, with a market cap of about 110 billion dollars , it is still one of the most valuable companies [6].

Using acquisitions, internal development and partnering with other companies Cisco has made inroads into many network equipment markets outside of routing, including Ethernet switching, remote access, branch office routers, ATM networking, security, IP telephony and others. In 2003, Cisco acquired Linksys, a popular manufacturer of computer networking hardware and positioned it as a leading brand for the home and the end user networking market (SOHO).

Cisco has set up "Cisco Networking Academies" in 150 countries aimed at teaching students to design and maintain computer networks.

Cisco provides certifications to professionals in the networking field. These include:
CCIE (Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert)
CCNP (Cisco Certified Network Professional)
CCDP (Cisco Certified Design Professional)
CCIP (Cisco Certified Internetwork Professional)
CCSP (Cisco Certified Security Professional)
CCVP (Cisco Certified Voice Professional)
CCNA (Cisco Certified Network Associate)
CCDA (Cisco Certified Design Associate)
CCSI (Cisco Certified Systems Instructor)

The company has its corporate headquarters in San Jose, California and also many outposts in other countries.


John Chambers is currently the President and CEO.

Other senior executives include:
John Morgridge - Chairman of the Board
Brad Boston - Senior Vice President and Chief Information Officer
Charles H. Giancarlo - Senior Vice President and Chief Development Officer
Dennis D. Powell - Senior Vice President, Chief Financial Officer
Susan Bostrom - Senior Vice President, Chief Marketing Officer
John N. Stewart - Chief Security Officer, Corporate Security Programs Organization
Wim Elfrink - Senior Vice President, Customer Advocacy
Joe Pinto - Senior Vice President, Technical Services
Rick Justice - Senior Vice President, Worldwide Field Operations

Origin of the Cisco name

The name "Cisco" is an abbreviation of San Francisco. According to John Morgridge, employee 34 and the company's former president, the founders hit on the name and logo while driving to Sacramento to register the company -- they saw the Golden Gate Bridge framed in the sunlight [7]. The name cisco Systems (with the lowercase "c") continued in use within the engineering community at the company long after the official company name was changed to Cisco Systems, Inc. Users of Cisco products can still see the name ciscoSystems occasionally in bug reports and IOS messages.

The company's logo reflects its San Francisco name heritage: it represents a stylized Golden Gate Bridge. In October 2006, Cisco publicly launched a new logo. The revised logo is graphically simpler and more stylized than the original.
