Cisco, the world leader in networking equipment, is all set to announce the Next Big Thing for the Internet, this March. The new technology would enable communications service providers to offer more advanced, high-speed Internet connections.
Cisco has refused to reveal-out exact details but their recent plans and announcements lead to converged, faster networks.
UPDATE: Cisco CRS-3 Announced, Boosts Internet Backbone Speeds to 322 Terabits.
Recently, U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) announced that it plans to enforce faster Internet speeds as part of its National Broadband Plan to be unveiled next month, on March 17, according to which bare-minimum Internet data transmission speeds of 100 mbps to 100 million homes within a decade, 96mbps up from current 4mbps. Though, that’s big, it still is far less than what Google is offering with the new Gigabit Internet experiment.
Cisco said on Wednesday it will unveil technology on March 9 that will “forever change the Internet.” On its website, it claims “What’s possible when networking gets an adrenaline boost.”
The upcoming technology would be a significant step-up towards making the IOS-model mould to something even better than current high-end Modular IOS-XE, XR. This would hit Juniper where it hurts the most: 100 Gigabit switches, Routers.
The technology would help telecom service providers like phone companies offer better, high-speed Internet service. A Great push for mobile internet is more expected as Cisco steps further in 4G LTE which would enable phone companies and corporations manage their networks and enable faster, more stable Internet connections.
The wait is on, stay tuned @taranfx for updates.
