Cisco Planning to Change the Internet
Cisco has announced it will make an announcement at the close of the market today, one which the company claims “will forever change the internet.” There is plenty of speculation as to what the announcement will deal with, with some popular theories including a fiber network and internet video traffic. A Cisco rep debunked the first theory, stating that Cisco is in the business of helping others do such things, and that it has no desire to build its own network. The latter theory is supported by the acquisition of Starent Networks, which specializes in mobile phone communication. I'm hoping that the announcement will enable companies to bring cheaper high speed internet to the United States.
