SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Cisco Systems, Inc. (Nasdaq:CSCO - News) today announced that Guinness World Records has certified the Cisco Carrier Routing System (CRS-1) as the highest capacity Internet router ever developed at 92 terabits (92 trillion bits per second) of total throughput, designed to afford up to 100 times more capacity than previously available. The Cisco CRS-1 becomes the first networking technology to be recognized by Guinness World Records, which is the authority on record-breaking achievement around the world.

Cisco's CRS-1, announced in May 2004, is a new class of routing system designed for telecommunications service providers to deliver next-generation data, voice and video services over a converged Internet Protocol (IP) network. This system is ideally suited for large-scale, high-bandwidth applications such as video on demand, online gaming, and real-time interactive services. The IP router, introduced by Cisco in 1984, is the foundation of the public Internet and one of the most important technologies of the past 20 years.

"Cisco is proud to have Guinness World Records recognize the Cisco CRS-1 as the world's highest capacity Internet router," said Tony Bates, architect of the CRS-1 and vice-president and general manager of Cisco's Carrier Core and Multiservice business unit. "The technological advancement of the CRS-1 will provide the capability for Internet services and applications that have never before been available on such a large scale. Millions of people can now look forward to a new suite of exciting, multimedia services both at work and home."
