Cisco Systems Inc. will launch a new router today for processing data, voice and video that is built atop its new QuantumFlow Processor. The router is the result of five years’ research and an investment of $250 million.
The new Aggregation Services Router (ASR) 1000 will be available next month in two-, four- and six-rack-unit sizes, starting at $35,000, Cisco officials said.
The ASR 1000 is Cisco’s highest-performance and most efficient router and features instant-on provisioning, said Jonathan Davidson, Cisco’s director of product management for midrange routing.
Its processing power is equal to 19.2 billion instructions in the same time it takes an average person to blink. It supports 160 simultaneous processes and has 40 cores, making it the biggest networking chip yet, analysts said. Source: Cisco to launch ASR 1000 router in Second Life demo
