Juniper (and competition) FTW!

Light Reading - Optical Networking - Juniper Upgrades the Core - Telecom News Analysis:
"Juniper Networks Inc. (Nasdaq: JNPR) came out today saying it's upgrading its T series to 250 Gbit/s per slot.

That appears to be a pre-emptive strike against Cisco Systems Inc. (Nasdaq: CSCO), which is said to be readying an announcement involving per-slot capacity of 120 Gbit/s. Cisco's plan could involve an upgrade to the CRS-1, rather than a wholly new box. (See Rumor: Cisco Prepping CRS-1 Successor.)"

It's great to see that the carrier-class (not to mention edge) router wars are still alive and well!
