Internet speed to get doubled, courtesy Cisco

How many time shave you complained about slow internet? Chances are, almost always.

Well, that won't be the case any time soon.

Cisco recently shared their plans of doubling internet speed in the near future. The tech company came up with this solution to enable wireless carriers and internet search providers to manage the in-demand need for video streams, social networks, and app downloads.

New Specifications

The new core router technology, known as "CRS-X," will provide speeds of 400 Gigabits per second -- and that's just for one slot on the router's rack. Each rack is scalable up to 6.4 Terabits per second, and the entire CRS-X system is capable of nearly 1 Petabit per second if multiple racks are set up in tandem.

That is insanely fast ; double anything that currently exists on the market.

A single CRS-X rack will be able to provide streaming HD video to every New
Yorker simultaneously, Cisco claims. A full, multichassis setup is capable of downloading the entire printed collection of the Library of Congress in a split second and can stream every movie ever created in about a minute.

Core routers sit at the epicenter of the Internet, serving as the traffic cops at the biggest intersections on the busiest data highways. They connect visitors' requests to sites like Google , Netflix and Facebook and they send data back to the right place in return.

They're a crucial part of the Internet backbone, and one that Cisco has a comfortable lead in. Cisco has 750 CRS customers, selling 10,000 systems to date, and it commands a roughly 65% share of the core routing market. That's more than double No. 2 Juniper's (JNPR) share.

The Future

Cisco says the CRS-X will help customers prepare for the "Internet of Everything," a much-discussed (but yet-to-arrive) world in which household items, cars and even clothing will connect to the Internet. Instead of connecting 4 million devices simultaneously, carriers and ISPs may soon need to connect 40 million items at the same time.

Though the CRS-X won't go on sale until the fall or even begin shipping until
the end of 2013, customers are already saying they're impressed. Mike Haberman, vice president of network operations at Verizon (VZ, Fortune 500) Wireless said the new CRS system will help the nation's largest wireless provider meet its service demands "well into the future."

If Internet traffic is going to triple over the next five years, as Cisco predicts, we're gonna need a bigger boat.

Well, thank you Cisco! S7JTV3JR9ZS6
