Tata Communications will deploy Cisco's Aggregation Services Router (ASR) for its next generation ethernet network service throughout India.
"We are looking forward to working with Cisco on the deployment of the Cisco ASR 9000 to efficiently deliver new communication services throughout our nationwide footprint," said John Hayduk, CTO, Tata Communications in a statement.
Ethernet technology is used to connect computing devices with each other.
Cisco said the ASR platform is 36 times that of competing products and can support 96 terabits per second transmission of data. ASR platform can stream recordings of all Super Bowls, World Cup and Cricket World Cup matches, ever played, in less than a second.
It will allow approximately 43 million people to watch a high-definition video movie simultaneously and download equivalent of 180,000 DVDs in a minute, explained Cisco in a statement.
Cisco in one of its reports has predicted that the number of network-connected devices will be more than 15 billion, twice the world's population, by 2015.
