The Birth of Cisco
Len Bosack and Sandy Lerner found Cisco after customizing and commercializing Yeagers multiprotocol router. Legend has it the two lovebirds set up a routed connection between their Stanford offices in order to easily communicate back and forth. After Cisco, Bosack started up XKL, a Redmond, WA., networking company. Lerner founded a cosmetics company and became an advocate for animal rights.
