New router has enough bandwidth to allow everyone in China to make a video call at the same time.

PC World: Yesterday, Cisco unveiled a new router with 322 terabits per second of bandwidth. That's enough bandwidth to allow everyone in China to make a video call at the same time. The CRS-3 could also transmit every motion picture ever made in 5 minutes or download the entire printed collection of the Library of Congress in 1 second.

Cisco says the new router is a response to the growing transmission of video over the Internet. "You are moving from a messaging platform to a video platform," said Cisco Chairman and CEO John Chambers. Predicting that Internet video will grow 200-500 percent per year, he added, "The Internet will scale faster than any of us anticipate."

Prices for the CRS-3 start at $90,000.
