Internet & Networking Cisco Systems today introduced its next-generation Internet core router, the CRS-3, with about three times the capacity of its current platform. "The Internet will scale faster than any of us anticipate," Cisco Chairman and CEO John Chambers said during a webcast announcing the product. At full scale, the CRS-3 has a capacity of 322Tbit/sec., roughly three times that of the CRS-1, which was introduced in 2004. It also has more than 12 times the capacity of its nearest competitor, Chambers said.

There is a clue in the name: the Carrier Routing System.

This is a device designed for ISPs and the companies who run the core Internet backbones. What business could possibly want the kind of speeds that this router can provide?
