Cisco has announced an upgrade for its ASR 9000 series of routers, doubling its density and giving it a capacity of up to 400Gbps per slot.


In combination, the ASR 9000 and the line cards will be able to deliver capacity as high as 6.4Tbps.

The router also incorporates a dedicated video streaming module, which allows content caching, ad insertion and fast channel change.


“Successes like these are indicative of Cisco delivering a highly versatile product to the market and one reason for its increase in market share in the carrier Ethernet router space this quarter,” IDC analyst Eve Griliches said.
