The closest airport is Oslo airport Gardemoen (OSL).

The Oslo Airport Express Train (Flytoget) leaves from inside the Oslo
Airport terminal building 70 meters to the right after leaving the
custom area in the arrival hall.  Your train ticket must be bought
before boarding the train.  There is a ticket office and vending
machines in the arrival area before accessing the train.  This service
is the fastest and most frequent way of travelling between the Airport
and the city. This is also one of the fastest going airport trains in
the world running at a speed of 210 km/h. 

The train takes you downtown to Oslo Central Station (Oslo S) in 19
minutes and leaves every 10 minutes.  Every second train also stops at
Lillestrøm, Oslo Central Station, Nationaltheatret, Skøyen, Lysaker,
Sandvika and Asker.

If you wish to travel directly to Cisco, you need to get off at Lysaker
Station and take a taxi from there. Travel time from the airport to
Lysaker is about 40 minutes and the Cisco office is 5 minutes from the
train station by car.  There is a taxi stand right outside of the
station.  You can also take the bus to the Cisco Office, bus 151 or 252
to "Oksenøyveien", this is the next stop after Lysaker station and it
stops right outside the main building.  The entrance to the office is
located on the opposite side of the building.
