Cisco IOS XE – Past, Present, and Future
Cisco IOS was developed in the 1980s for the company’s first routers that had only 256 KB of memory and low CPU processing power. But what a difference a few decades make. Today Cisco IOS XE runs our entire enterprise networking portfolio. That's 80+ different Cisco platforms for access, distribution, core, wireless, and WAN. There are, with a myriad of combinations of hardware and software and physical and virtual form factors.
How IOS XE Developers at Cisco Work Remotely and Cohesively on a 190-million-line Code Base
Remote working at Cisco predated the pandemic. So when offices closed last March, Cisco IOS XE developers were well prepared. Aside from their ability to work remotely, our developers are incredibly efficient, productive, and maintain high quality due to our unique tooling and the ability to run IOS XE code modularly and independently.
