On Monday, Cisco announced that they were going to change the internet forever and there was a lot of speculation on what the hell they were talking about. Well we can stop speculating, Cisco introduces their CRS-3 Carrier Routing system. While the name doesn't sound that impressive, what it's actually capable of sure is. Designed for the next-generation of internet serving, the CRS-3 is capable of delivering 322 Terabits of data per second. Not quite sure how much is a Terabit? I could pull some wikipedia data, but that's pretty boring and we don't need to see a bunch of zero's and commas anyway, so I'll let Cisco explain it better:
The CRS-3 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.
Oh. My. God. Do want! How do you think this will change our internet experience? Discuss it in the comments
