Guinness World Records Recognizes Cisco Router

Thu Jul 1,12:33 PM ET

By Ben Klayman

CHICAGO (Reuters) - The same book that boasts the world records for most glasses balanced on a chin, the tallest snowman and longest continuous clapping session, now includes Cisco Systems Inc.'s (Nasdaq:CSCO - news) new machine that directs Internet traffic.

Guinness World Records certified Cisco's CRS-1 router as the highest capacity Internet router at 92 terabits -- 92 trillion bits per second -- of total throughput. That makes it the first networking technology to be recognized by Guinness World Records, which has tracked record-breaking achievements around the world for almost 50 years.

The CRS-1, which Cisco unveiled in May, is capable of downloading the entire printed collection of the U.S. Library of Congress (news - web sites) in 4.6 seconds, as opposed to a dial-up modem transfer rate that would take 82 years. It is designed for telephone companies to deliver data, voice and video services over the Internet.

Does this mean my new Porter Cable 863 is already obsolete?
