CRS-3 Scores A Goal…in Japan

June 18, 2010 - 0 Comments

footballAll eyes are glued to South Africa to find out the ultimate winner of the greatest sporting event in the world. The lucky few can see this in person. The rest of us must settle for the video screen in our living rooms (or dare say at work), though the experience is certainly being enhanced by new technologies such as  the 3D HD video transmission offered by ESPN in the US and Sogecable in Spain.

As you can imagine, three-dimensional visual experiences need beefed-up IP networks with massively scalable core routers capable of prioritizing the traffic and handling the increased bandwidth. The Cisco CRS-3 is indeed up to the job for this demanding function – it wouldn’t work to have issues at a critical moment in a match. And, it’s the sort of innovation that scoring a few goals of it’s own as it won over the judges at Japan’s Interop event last week with the Cisco CRS-3 being presented with the “Best of Show” award.

So, what makes the CRS-3 so unique?

It’s built for the Next Generation Internet where 3D video and video may just be the norm. It features single-flow traffic processing even at high bandwidths on a multi-chassis architecture to deliver flawless performance as opposed to multiple-flow processing that requires can potentially lead to bottlenecks due to complex algorithms. Moreover the CRS-3 excels in environmental metrics by providing industry’s lowest watts per Gbps of throughput in core routers.

Now, whoever you place your bets on for the FIFA World Cup, you can be sure of scoring with the Cisco CRS-3 in your network.
