“Routermania” (or, having and sharing the world’s most powerful edge router)

October 22, 2009 - 0 Comments

With the release of more information this week from the Visual Networking Index , it’s clear that traffic is increasing and bandwidth usage is on-the-rise (no slowdown in sight). As our video consumption becomes more voracious, service providers around-the-world are gearing up and getting ready to deliver.

And, well, at Cisco we’ve not been shy about our excitement around our Cisco ASR 9000 – the world’s most powerful edge router. It’s beautifully engineered, is getting great reception by our customers, and has become a little bit of a celebrity (not to mention being the perfect gift).

And, now is the time when you can have your own (even personalized as you’d like) Cisco ASR 9000! Yes, that’s right. You can be the envy of all and have the router that can stream HD video to every house in LA in a day right next to your bobbleheads and work items.

The time has come for routermania! And, we want you to participate.

  1. ASR 9000 seen at ITUVisit Prep the Net, a fun interactive site that allows you to test your skills (easy, medium and hard) and make your own ASR 9000 (always inviting you to go to our product page to learn more). Personalize it. Take a picture. Make a video and upload it. Already, you’ll see the ASR 9000 in Scotland Laughing and sporting some stylish haircuts. And it was quite literally everywhere at ITU World Telecom in Geneva and Supercomm in Chicago
  2. Upload your videos and pictures. Share and challenge your friends (who knows, we might have some contests in-the-works). Tweet it.
  3. Tell us what you think. Show us how creative you are.

Routermania is taking hold…join the movement!
