Cisco unveils new routers

Cisco Systems announced three additions to its 7000 family of routing devices aimed at businesses and service providers. The new 7300, 7603 and 7606 routers can reach up to OC-48 speeds, which moves data at 2.488gbps (gigabits per second). The products, which will ship in October, also support new Internet-based services, such as Internet telephony and virtual private networks, which are inexpensive but secure connections to corporate networks through the Internet. Cisco executives said the new midrange products can be used for corporate networks or the "edge" of service provider networks, where routers sit at the point where private business connections for corporations intersect with the public Internet.
