Cisco Systems has unveiled a new Internet core router called the CRS-3, which it claims has three times the capacity of its current platform.
PC World reports Cisco Chairman and CEO John Chambers as saying:
At full scale, the CRS-3 has a capacity of 322T bits per second, roughly three times that of the CRS-1, which was introduced in 2004. It also has more than 12 times the capacity of its nearest competitor. The CRS-3 will help the Internet evolve from a messaging to an entertainment and media platform, with video the emerging “killer app”.
