iPhone and iPod Touch Now Have an Edge

- April 16, 2009 - 7 Comments

I am pleased to announce that arguably the World’s most popular (and, likely the only) router-based game, Cisco Edge Quest, is now available (free and freely) from the App store.imageThis mobile derivative of our online game, which has been played by more than 60,000 worldwide, challenges players to take full advantage of the massive capabilities of the ASR 9000 in a fun, interactive way. In fact, my three year-old daughter has taken to the ways of her “Edge Master” father, by honing her skills in the back seat on drives to school. Hearing a young voice get excited about acquiring a speed upgrade or taking pity on her competitors about not being able to keep above five 9’s of reliablity, needless to say, makes her father quite proud.So don’t be upstaged by my daughter – or any of the other 60,000 players. Grab your iPhone (or iPod touch), download the game, hang on, and “engage” the power of the world’s most powerful edge router, iPhone-style.Oh, and please share the fun by spreading the word through word-of-mouth, forwarding, Twittering, blogging or even Fluttering.EdgeMaster Doug

  1. Wow what an amazing game, i cant believe its free. You could have made so much cash of this game, unless your making cash from other sources?

  2. Thanks, Chris -- glad that you are enjoying it! I share your EdgeQuest addiction...!

  3. This is an incredibly addictive game, I just downloaded to give it a go and I now find myself looking to play games on my ipod touch rather than waiting until I forced to while travelling.The game itself has a very excellent addictive/enjoyment factor that keeps people glued, and best of all it was completely free, it's safe to say it's one of the best and most fun apps in the Apple store, thanks Cisco!

  4. Thanks for the feedback, Ravenii -- we're happy to do anything we can to help emphasize the importance of network uptime to our future generation of CCIEs!

  5. Your Daughter has a four year old partner now who is equally thrilled to have my iPhone time to time! Thank you for the info!

  6. Hi Brandon -- thanks for the feedback and glad you are liking the game! We weren't able to do the leaderboard on this version due to some technical challenges but please hone your skills on this mobile version and then consider applying them on our online version at -- that's the version we used for our online tournament and that hosts an active leader board. For more levels, be sure to check out the original EdgeQuest game on the same site, where you can navigate the challenges at the edge with the ASR 1000. That game version has more levels and even has some special levels we used for that version's tournament last summer.Thanks for the note and hope you enjoy!

  7. Great game. But I feel that its like a demo. There should be more levels and a way to compete with high scores from other people around the world. Again, great game, but still needs a little work.
