The article reports on the launch of the Aggregation Services Router 9000 Series by networking giant Cisco.

Cisco is marketing the router as its first edge entry in the zettabyte era, a term the company coined for the growing Internet Protocol (IP) traffic payload that will hit carrier networks in the next four years.
