Changing the Future of Networking?

Following Cisco’s buzz build-up and future change promises and few weeks of rumors and speculations, D-day arrived.

The title revealed some of the mystery even before the webcast started

This is pointing us to think about the broadband rumors.

Few minutes ago Cisco announced CRS3. With more than 12 times the traffic capacity of the nearest competing system, the Cisco CRS-3 is designed to transform the broadband as it can deliver up to 322 tbps of capacity!!!

This goes side by side with AT&T’s announcement earlier this morning. AT&T is Cisco’s major partner for this new innovation and participated in the web-cast.

John Chambers, Cisco ‘s CEO and a proud internet plumber announced this and looked very excited. Read and hear more from Cisco here.

I’m not a news blog so I’ll stop here but even though most of us will not touch this equipment, on the long run it will affect each of us and provide a better, faster internet for all of us. This announcement combined with Juniper’s 100G In Optical Fiber trial with Verizon promise an exciting new speedy era 🙂

    Wow! Cisco’s world changing announcement is……… a router 🙂
    Sorry, but what a fizzer.

    I’m a bit skeptical of any claims of throughput, it’s all marketing math anyway.

    This hardly qualifies as “changing the Internet”. Yay Cisco, you made a faster router. How is that a surprise? My carrier could build their offices out of CRS3’s, it won’t make my last mile connection any faster.

    I think Cisco’s run out of ideas.

      I think you missed the big picture. These processes take time to roll over to the home user but over the years this is exactly how its working. once ISPs are capable of transferring more data they build their networks to support it, provide the services to businesses and eventually the home users. it is a platform that allow progress.
      and yes, it is obvious that Cisco are doing everything to make it sound as dramatic as possible but they have share holders and ISPs that expect it, not smart home users like us 😉
