Wow! Cisco CRS-3 More Than Triples Capacity!
Think you can’t get emotional over technology?
And what’s that about guys not being able to show their emotions?
Mere mention of Cisco’s CRS-3 core router – announced today – is enough to shake to the core (Core . . . get it?) even the coldest of creatures.
- More than three times the capacity of the CRS-1 . . . which itself still has more than three times the capacity of its nearest competitor. Oooooohhh!
- Scales to 322 terabytes, actually. Aaahhhhhhh!
Think of it this way . . . At 322 terabytes, the CRS-3 would allow every man, woman, and child in China to simultaneously make video calls.
Or — The CRS-3, running at 322 Tbps, could deliver all movies ever made in just 4 minutes.
But there’s more.
The new QuantumFlow Array Processor . . .
- Helps double the service intelligence of our previous generation of core routers to power cloud and data center services
- Has single flow wire rate forwarding – a fancy technical term meaning no bottlenecks
But wait, wait . . . don’t turn into a quivering mass of jelly yet.
- The CRS-3 is the new benchmark in power and cooling efficiency — nearly twice as energy efficient as its competitors.
And, and . . .
The CRS-3 offers amazing investment protection. No changing out of chassis, power blocks or fans. All new components are backward compatible. Even the power units are modular and can be added as a network grows.
Wow. I’m glad no one is around to see me so emotional. That would definitely tarnish my guy credentials.
This will be our secret. OK?
