Silicon & Optics
Capabilities that make networking possible.
As a world-renowned creator of networking technologies, Cisco is deeply invested in the capabilities that make those technologies possible.
We are one of the most active investors in silicon and optics, with a number of active portfolio companies (that are confidential).
Our focus on next-generation networking allows Cisco to meet market trends as they happen. From “bare metal silicon” approaches to fully integrated systems, we offer diverse solutions to specific customer pain points.
We are looking to invest in partners who share our passion for silicon and optics technologies—innovators who can see how tomorrow works. With a joint vision and common goals, we will pave the way for future leadership in this key area of technology. Cisco’s ready and able to make capital investments in this domain, bringing innovation to market.
