Cisco Advanced Gateway Server

"It all started here"

Announcement / Release
around 1986


The Advanced Gateway Server (AGS) was a revised version of the Stanford router built by William Yeager and Andy Bechtolsheim. Bosack and Lerner designed and built routers in their house and experimented using Stanford's network. Initially, Bosack and Lerner went to Stanford with a proposition to start building and selling the routers, Stanford refused. Eventually in 1987, Stanford relented and licensed the router software and two computer boards to Cisco.
