It is a router. Yawn.
Yes, Cisco is a router company, so it’s great that it is making awesome routers that will make the Internet faster for everyone. We’re sure the purchasing departments at large telecom companies are drooling. But seriously, what a lame announcement to hype like that.
Anyway, what caught our eye over the weekend was a report from SiliconAngle writer John Furrier, who said that Cisco would announce “an ‘AppleTV’ style cable set top or edge consumer box based on their Scientific Atlanta technology.”
But Cisco didn’t make any such announcement about set-top boxes. Just a big, insanely fast router.
So, where is it? Good question.
On Twitter, John Furrier says, “I have on good sources it’s coming just not today.” So, we’ll see.
In the meantime, enjoy your router, telecom companies.
