TechWiseTV Episode 47 “Routing Revolution on the Network Edge” Show Notes The ASR 1000 series of routers is very simply answering the challenge of ever escalating demand. Demand for more speed, smaller form factors, less energy, on and on and on. It sets new bars for performance, David Newman said it well in his Network World Article: “With enterprises looking to consolidate data centers and devices, Cisco’s new ASR 1000 series router offers a compelling message: Do more with less.In an exclusive Clear Choice test, the ASR not only moved traffic at 20Gbps but also did so while running QoS, security and monitoring functions on 120 million flows from hundreds of concurrent routing sessions.” This is the kind of performance and innovation we need moving forward. This show was a lot of fun to make. Great people, great technology. Here are the notes and details for further info you may find helpful.
