Revealing the Cisco ASR 9000 Series

November 12, 2008 - 1 Comment

The journey of Ira, our well intentioned though not so perceptive journalist, came to an end today with the announcement of the innovative, new Cisco ASR 9000 Series. However, I’m still not sure he has figured it out yet…here’s the final installment of Ira’s blog, TechEdgeWeekly, and a video of his encounter with fellow SP360 blogger, SVP Kelly Ahuja and VP Praveen Akkiraju, who are among the several hundred creators of this platform.For details on the Cisco ASR 9000 Series, both SVP Pankaj Patel, who co-heads our service provider business council, and Charlie Guyer, who leads our Service Provider Analyst Relations team have posted. We also have a great amount of information on a very dynamic website (in the spirit of an automobile site, no less, Ira, so you were close…) and, of course, on Newsroom@Cisco.There’s a lot to digest there, but in summary, I look at this as a great example of Cisco innovation – it took four years and more than two hundred people to design what our service provider customers need in anticipation of things to come. While Ira’s journey may be over, the journey of the Cisco ASR 9000 Series is just beginning. And the journey of Cisco, bringing innovative solutions to market to help us all achieve the infinite possibilities the network has to offer is still strongly and resolutely continuing.
