Fujitsu and Cisco Introduce IP/MPLS Core Router for Japan

Fujitsu Limited and Cisco Systems launched sales in Japan of a four-slot model of the co-branded "Fujitsu and Cisco CRS-1" Carrier Routing System. The new router model delivers the same 40 Gbps of switching capacity per slot as other models in the series, providing a total switching capacity of 320 Gbps. It also uses the same I/O modules and forwarding engines as existing 8-slot and 16-slot models.

Under a strategic partnership announced in December 2004, Fujitsu and Cisco offer customized solutions that take into account the particular requirements of the Japanese market.http://newsroom.cisco.com

  • In September 2005, Cisco Systems introduced a compact version of its CRS-1 Carrier Routing System designed for deployment at regional Points of Presence (POPs), MSO hub locations and data center peering sites. The new platform is especially aimed at broadcast IPTV services and offers a multistage switch fabric with native multicast capabilities.
