Cisco Unveils 322Tbit/sec Internet Router

Cisco unveiled their new CRS-3 core internet router today. The router is 3 times faster than the last version. Just how fast is it? Well according to Cisco Chairman and CEO John Chambers:

“The CRS-3 will help the Internet evolve from a messaging to an entertainment and media platform, with video emerging as the “killer app,” Chambers said.

Using a CRS-3, every person in China, which has a population just over 1.3 billion, could participate in a video phone call at the same time. It could transmit the whole printed contents of the Library of Congress in one second and every movie ever made in four minutes, according to Cisco.”
