In the early 1980's, Bosack ran the computer system for the Stanford University computer science department. His wife, Sandy Lerner, ran the computers for the Stanford University business school. They needed a way for the computer science department network to communicate with the business school network. In 1984 Lerner and Bosack developed hardware and software into a device that enabled the Stanford computers to communicate with any of the other computer systems scattered around the Stanford University campus. What they did was develop a device to connect the different networks, thus creating one big Stanford network. Today this device that forwards data packets from one computer site to another is called a router. But when Stanford eventually stood in their way about marketing this technology, Lerner and Bosack formed a company called Cisco Systems and took their new technology with them. This helped usher in a new age of communications, as today 70-80% of the Internet's infrastructure is made up of Cisco routers.
