GULF, March 17, 2010 – Cisco today announced a major advancement in Internet networking -- 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.

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. It enables unified service delivery of Internet and cloud services with service intelligence spanning service provider Internet Protocol Next-Generation Networks (IP NGN) and data center.  The Cisco CRS-3 also provides unprecedented savings with investment protection for the nearly 5,000 Cisco CRS-1 deployed worldwide.

AT&T, the world’s largest service provider, recently deployed the Cisco CRS-3 in its production network in a successful completion of the world’s first field trial of 100-Gigabit backbone network technology.  The trial advances development of the next generation of backbone network technology that will support the network requirements for growing number of advanced services being deployed by the world’s largest service provider to consumer and business customers, both fixed and mobile.
