Cisco announced recently its CRS-3 Carrier Routing System which they claim has twelve times the traffic capacity of their competitors and three times as much as their previous version. This next generation router may revolutionize the world wide web by multiplying download speeds – high speed internet.
It enables the entire printed collection of the Library of Congress to be downloaded in just over one second; every man, woman and child in China to make a video call, simultaneously; and every motion picture ever created to be streamed in less than four minutes.
When will this be available? Cisco’s SVP Kelly Ahuja was not able to give a clear answer because a big part of bringing that to the users depend on the internet service providers. Cisco’s new CRS-3 technology is available as soon as ISPs upgrade.
