Cisco lands second big ASR 9000 router customer

Cisco has landed a second big customer for its ASR 9000 router: Deutsche Telekom AG, reports Light Reading. (Verizon Wireless was the first big customer.) The publication sniffed the news out from a Cisco video published today entitled "DT and Cisco ASR 9000: Capacity and Capability Enable Advanced Services" (See below).

If you don't want to watch the whole 3 minute video, here's the nuts and bolts, from Light Reading:

DT senior executive vice president Wolfgang Schmitz talks about using the ASR 9000 to simplify the company's networks, especially when it comes to the delivery of video. The company also intends to merge business and residential services onto the router, rather than keeping the traffic in separate networks."
