On March 9, 2010 Cisco announced the Cisco® CRS-3 Carrier Routing System (CRS) designed to serve as the foundation of the next-generation Internet and set the pace for the astonishing growth of video transmission, mobile devices and new online services through this decade and beyond.
With more than 12 times the traffic capacity of the nearest competing system, the Cisco CRS-3 is designed to transform the broadband communication and entertainment industry by accelerating the delivery of compelling new experiences for consumers, new revenue opportunities for service providers, and new ways to collaborate in the workplace.
Check below the amazing features of this device which can support for sure the future technologies:
Total capacity of up to 322 Tbps – 13 times the competition
Proven multichassis architecture with 3-stage fabric
Tried and tested QuantumFlow Array chipset to help prevent bottlenecks
Defining Core and Data Center Services
Built-in service intelligence allows the network and cloud to work as one
Multi-directional capabilities handle traffic between data centers and from core to subscriber
Cloud VPNs automate network connectivity
Defining Cost Savings
Lower cost per Gbps – uses up to 40% power of competitors
Optional modular power system that grows with capacity
Smart design uses the existing CRS-1 chassis and many components, requiring only fabric and line card upgrade

Introducing the Cisco CRS-3 Carrier Routing System by Mr. John Chambers:
Even this post has nothing do to with Cisco, Juniper or other great products, I strongly believe that has to do with the idea of “network”. I don’t know how many remember that on 29th of October 2009 we celebrate 40 years from the birth of Internet. I have to admit that I didn’t remember, but reading an article on CNN made it all clear.
From CNN’s webpage post one phrase remain in my mind: “On October 29 of that year, for perhaps the first time, a message was sent over the network that would eventually become the Web. Leonard Kleinrock, a professor of computer science at the University of California-Los Angeles, connected the school’s host computer to one at Stanford Research Institute, a former arm of Stanford University.”
I invite you to read CCN’s article and think for a second what Internet means and how much it helped for the global human development.
New ATLAS system promises real-time data on security, routing and traffic trends.
Network security vendor Arbor Networks is collaborating with more than 100 ISPs worldwide to create a more comprehensive Internet monitoring system.
The newly enhanced ‘Net monitoring system, dubbed ATLAS 2.0 by Arbor Networks, now monitors and collects real-time data for global Internet traffic, routing and application performance. Previously, Arbor says the ATLAS system had been used mostly to collect data on security-related traffic such as distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attack traffic.
Arbor decided to expand its ATLAS system to more general Internet monitoring to help its client ISPs gather more business intelligence on the traffic and application trends that guide service providers’ business decisions.
Blaupunkt has a new car radio that can stream Internet stations over 3G, which allow users to tune in to any of about 16,000 stations from around the world.
The “New Jersey 600i” and “Hamburg 600i” radios, which are the first such in the world according to the company, are on show at this week’s Cebit trade fair in Hanover, Germany. By connecting over Bluetooth to a cell phone, the radios access a 3G Internet service and then stream almost any station that’s online. The radios work with the MiRoamer Internet database to grab information about available stations, and then your favorite programs are just a couple of button clicks away.
Beyond the price of the 3G data service it’s free to connect and listen to stations online.
