Most people won’t have given much thought as to how their email gets from A to B or how that video arrives from YouTube. It just comes down the broadband connection which is plugged into the router next to the phone (or somewhere like that). Right?
Well today the worlds biggest router manufacturer, Cisco, announced their latest and greatest product. It isn’t something that you will want to plug into your phone line though because it would take up most of the living room and there wouldn’t be enough room left for the sofa.
It would also be a bit of an overkill because this router, the CRS-3, is powerful enough to handle up to 322 Terabits1 per second, which is roughly a hundred million times faster than the average UK broadband connection speed!
