Guinness World Records recognizes Cisco router - Computerworld

Guinness World Records recognizes Cisco router - Computerworld "The same book that boasts the world records for most glasses balanced on a chin, the tallest snowman and the longest continuous clapping session now includes Cisco Systems Inc.'s new router for directing Internet traffic.
Guinness World Records certified Cisco's CRS-1 router as the highest-capacity Internet router at 92Tbits -- 92 trillion bits per second -- of total throughput. That makes it the first networking technology to be recognized by Guinness World Records, which has tracked record-breaking achievements around the world for almost 50 years.
...
The CRS-1, which Cisco unveiled in May, is capable of downloading the entire printed collection of the U.S. Library of Congress in 4.6 seconds. In comparison, a dial-up modem would take 82 years to download that amount of data. The CRS-1 is designed for telephone companies to deliver data, voice and video services over the Internet."
