Cisco helps seize the opportunities of tomorrow by proving that amazing things can happen when you connect the unconnected. An integral part of our DNA is creating long-lasting customer partnerships, working together to identify our customers' needs and provide solutions that fuel their success. We have preserved this keen focus on solving business challenges since our founding in 1984.
At Cisco, we believe technology is the bridge to overcoming some of the world’s greatest challenges, and we’re proud to power Global Citizen’s movement to end extreme poverty. For nearly 30 years, we have invested in core issues we all share – the need for a home, food, clean water, an education, and the opportunity to make a living. Our hope is to create a digital economy in which everyone – regardless of gender, background or location – has the chance to thrive.
