Cisco Plans Major Leap in Hardware - WSJ.com

Yow…

Cisco Systems Inc., reacting to a spike in video and data traffic on the Internet, is introducing a new generation of hardware to help communications carriers cope with the flood.

The networking-equipment giant says its new hardware took four years and $200 million to develop and offers a sixfold leap in capacity over existing products. The new router, called the ASR 9000, is capable of moving 6.4 terabytes per second of traffic, the equivalent of 250,000 digital songs or 200 feature-length movies a second, Cisco says.
