Founders Sandy Lerner (left) and Leonard Bosack (center) incorporate cisco Systems. They dream of disparate networks talking with each other and sharing information reliably. But in order for the networks to be truly interconnected, a technology has to be invented that can deal with the disparate local area protocols. With that dream, the multi-protocol router is born.

Two men, Len Bosack in a black suit and an unidentified man in tweed, sit at a table looking up at Sandy Lerner, a woman in a business suit standing in profile holding documents.
