TechWiseTV: "Revelution on the Network Edge"

Driven by new data, voice, and video applications, global IP traffic is projected to reach a staggering 29 exabytes a month by 2011: more than 1100 times the volume of just 10 years ago. This puts tremendous pressure on traditional “edge” routers, requiring them to intelligently process millions of digital packets every second without sacrificing performance, reliability, or security. How will your network handle these unprecedented performance demands?

Take a deep technical dive of the new Cisco ASR 1000 Series Aggregation Services Routers with the TechWiseTV team. Discover how this revolutionary solution will completely transform your network edge. Gain valuable insights from its inventor, Michael Beesley, who supervised a team of 600 development engineers for more than five years to develop the ASR 1000, which has the equivalent capacity of 160 Cisco 7200 Routers.

Discover the innovations that make its unprecedented speed, reliability, flexibility, and security possible, including the revolutionary Cisco QuantumFlow processor. Learn how the ASR 1000 will enable you to:

  • Achieve full redundancy in a single platform thanks to its unique Cisco IOS XE Software operating system, which runs a dual copy simultaneously in protected memory space
  • Support multiple services such as high-speed firewall and deep packet inspection simultaneously right on the central processor instead of separate blades or standalone appliances
  • Provision new services remotely with “instant-on” capability
  • Provide true line-rate performance across your WAN even when multiple functions and applications are activated
  • Maximize performance and reduce bandwidth consumption by up to 90 percent for WebEx, web, voice over IP (VoIP), and video conferences
  • Dramatically reduce capital and operating expenses and adapt quickly to rapid changes at the network edge
