Specular Networks, developped a 360G switch for CISCO back in 2005 using 90nm... way ahead of anybody. Unfortunately, product was too advanced for the market and company got killed. CISCO kept the design. I don't think CISCO is behind in term of technology...

@goafrtit, I agree with you that Cisco may be done this decade untile unless they come up with some unique product. They sold their flip mobile business sometime back. And now this announcement by ALU will put pressure on Cisco. Cisco is in really bad shape.

It's aggregated bandwidth.

@ muna: these routers are placed at the edges of the aggregation networks where all the data collected from the different routers will be exchanged with other router. A breakthrough new Al-Lu and this will make the share of Cisco much lesser in the future.

could you please explain me the application of this router .........is it for internet application , if so , why we need so much data rate ? Even having datarate in the range of 1oombps is quite good for my laptop to run larger video file.

400bps. what will they use that for. This is incredibly fast. ALU is coming back to life and Cisco may be done this decade.

This is a mind blowing announcement by Alca-Lu, the kind of memory support is remarkable in the industry, I am seeing it for the first time. Also this kind of edge router if deployed efficiently by the ISPs will surely help improving the people access internet.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
