While we were at Data Center World hearing a keynote about the coming tidal wave of mobile data, Cisco Systems (CSCO) was unveiling an Internet networking product designed to handle all that traffic. Cisco says the CRS-3 Carrier Routing System (CRS) has more than 12 times the traffic capacity of the nearest competing system. With a capacity of up to 322 Terabits per second, the CRS-3 could enable “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,” according to Cisco. For more, here’s a video from Cisco providing an overview of the CRS-3 and its capabilities, which runs about 3 minutes, 45 seconds.
