Cisco Introduces a Simpler Way to Build Internet for Zettabyte Era

On June 7, 2011, Cisco announced several major advancements to its Cisco ASR 9000 Series Aggregation Services Routers. These new changes are a direct result of nV technology (Network Virtualization) and are expected to greatly improve capacity and performance with the next-generation Internet.

The Cisco ASR 9000 Series will now include the Cisco ASR 9922 Router and high-density interfaces for the network edge. The Series will also include Cisco ASR 9000v for the network aggregation layer. These new additions will allow high-speed connectivity for businesses and residences through a single system.

Cisco also stated that the Cisco ASR 9000 system will have superior network capacity that can handle 96 terabits per second. This is 36 times faster than competing products, and will support up to 84,840 Gigabit Ethernet (GE) ports.

The Cisco ASR 9000 Series is also expected simplify network operations and lower general operating costs by up to 70 percent. This will be accomplished through plug-and-play capabilities, inexpensive configurations, a single point-of-service management, and features that are quick and easy to deploy.

Furthermore, Cisco will be greatly simplifying the design and deployment of their services for global service providers. Cisco Integrated Services Module (ISM) with Cisco nV technology will allow carrier-grade IPv6 deployment through a single touch point, and Cisco Videoscape technology will use Cisco Integrated Service Module to cache and monitor video feeds.
