Edge Quest 2 Tournament - Get your game on!Hello. It’s Cisco ASR 9000 Edge Master Webster, again.I am pleased to launch the Cisco Edge Quest 2 Tournament – starting today and running through Friday March 6th. TWO weeks and ample opportunity for you to practice and submit your scores, so you too can gain “EdgeMaster” status and win some great prizes to boot!!Edge Quest 2 is a fast, fun online game highlighting the Cisco ASR 9000 series router. And, I’m convinced you’ll want to prove your Edge expertise by start some friendly “challenges” with your friend, foe and family. There are three levels to the game, and, to you, I offer the top three reasons to participate and compete to win:

  1. Feeds and speeds can be fun!
    Yes, this game is all about a carrier class router that is redefining the edge of networking. But, believe me this game is fun, albeit addicting! In it you can quickly maneuver through a 5-lane tunnel filled with network obstacles in an attempt to avoid downtime while increasing bandwidth. You can also boost your speed by collecting upgrades, and repair damaged packets to maintain your network’s 99.999% uptime.
  2. Cash + Wireless Home Audio System = Love
    Okay, so, we can’t promise love. But, trust me the prizes for this tournament will make you want to practice and perfect your skills. At the end of each week, the top 3 eligible scores will receive the following (yes, that’s right, 6 winners in all):
    • Grand Prize: US$500 gift card + Linksys by Cisco Wireless Home Audio System (this is very, very cool and making me disappointed that Cisco employees and their families aren’t eligible to win…)
    • First prize: US$300 gift card
    • Second prize: US$100 gift card
  3. Practice made Social (on Facebook)
    In case you’re looking to perfect your skills before you enter to win the tournament, I’m pleased to let you know that the Cisco Edge Quest 2 game is now available on Facebook – Now you can hone your skills in the comfort of your very own profile. Practice up and when you’re ready to prove your Edge dominance, go to the tournament site and play to win!

Please do consult, the official terms and conditions for participation in the Cisco Edge Quest 2 Tournament, please visit’t miss this opportunity to play, learn, network, and to do some serious friend challenging!Brad Reese, Stacy Higginbotham, and Craig Matsumoto, ready to play and post your scores?

  1. It's amazing what concepts can constitute a video game anymore...nearly anything can be made fun with modern graphics and creative ideas on gameplay. I guess we've come a long way since the days of Atari and Intellivision.

  2. Suggestions:- Be able to view the entire leaderboard from the main menu screen of the game.- Each Players top entry is only recorded on the scoreboard.
