Cisco changes the Internet?

Following a claim that it was going to “forever change the internet”, Cisco Systems has announced new-generation switching and router hardware that delivers an amazing 322 terabits per second.

Cisco claims that the CRS 3 carrier router will allow the entire printed collection of the Library of Congress to be downloaded in just over a second.

The technology promises to solve the problem of bandwidth congestion caused by rich media such as digital movies, and services such as the iPlayer, in one fell swoop, solving a long standing problem for ISPs.

AT&T plans to start deploying the technology in the US in a couple of years time.
