Cisco launches super fast router.....
Just so the great unwashed know, that is fast enough to transmit the entire printed collection of the US Library of Congress in one second, or the bandwidth required for every man, woman and child in China to make a video call, simultaneously. Every movie ever created could be streamed in less than four minutes, Cisco claims.
Of course it is just a router and not the entire world wide web infrastructure, but it has more than 12 times the traffic capacity of anything else out there.Cisco says that it will make Internet and cloud services much more efficient. It mentions that AT&T recently tested the Cisco CRS-3 during the world's first field trial of 100-Gigabit backbone network technology, which took place over AT&T's live network between New Orleans and Miami recently.
The CRS-3 machine will replace the firm's CRS-1 router, which is still one of the most popular and fastest available commercial routers. The CRS-3 is three times faster than the CRS-1.The firm says its latest top of the line carrier-grade router is powered by its Quantumflow Array Processor, which unifies the combined power of six communications processor chips to work as one. This apparently will deliver high service capabilities and processing power. It also will require only a fraction of the power.
