Cisco is the worldwide leader in networking that transforms how people connect, communicate, and collaborate. Cisco's network-centric platform is changing the nature of work and the way we live. Founded in 1984, Cisco pioneered the development of Internet Protocol (IP)-based networking technologies. This tradition continues with the development of routing, switching, and other networking-based technologies such as application networking services, collaboration, home networking, security, storage area networking, telepresence systems, unified communications, unified computing, video systems, and wireless. All of these technologies are made possible due to the evolution of the network. As an innovator in the communications and information technology industry, Cisco and our valued partners sell Cisco hardware, software, and services to businesses of all sizes, governments, service providers, and consumers. An integral part of Cisco's business strategy is strong corporate social responsibility. Beyond our investments in social programs and commitment to environmentally conscious operations and products, we are proactively engaged with global governmental, scientific, and social leaders to develop solutions to climate change, to create economic and educational opportunities, and to address other pressing social and environmental issues.
