Cisco ushers in “next-generation internet”, routing platform scales up to 332 Tbps/s [Video]

After a momentous announcement yesterday that it would unveil something today that would "forever change the internet", Cisco has introduced its internet changer, the Cisco CRS-3 Carrier Routing System.  Let's just say that it won't quite change your world, but it'll deliver your slice of the internet quite a bit faster.

"The Cisco CRS-3 triples the capacity of its predecessor, the Cisco CRS-1 Carrier Routing System, with up to 322 Terabits per second, which enables the entire printed collection of the Library of Congress to be downloaded in just over one second; every man, woman and child in China to make a video call, simultaneously; and every motion picture ever created to be streamed in less than four minutes."

So it's faster, but only by three times the speed.  That's not enough to be labeled life-changing in my book, but it certainly will be appreciated.
