Cisco's New Router Could Let Everyone In China Make A Video Call At Once

Chinese Army Soldiers


Cisco’s major news is finally out: a new large-scale core router, the CRS-3, capable of handling 322 Tbps.That number — three times what Cisco’s current best product, the CRS-1, can handle — is just a theoretical upper limit. But still, it’s a pretty staggering upper limit.

Just how fast is 322 Tbps?

Well, for one thing, it’s fast enough to allow every man, woman, and child in China to make a video call at the same time.

See what else you can do with 322 Tbps >
