The networking giant has designed its new four-slot CRS-1 for hub locations shared by multiple service operators, as well as regional hubs and data centre peering sites.
The CRS-1 scales up to a maximum throughput of 92Tbps and offers 40Gbps internet connectivity.
It is designed to handle next-generation networking applications including video on demand, internet telephony, data networking and mobile services.
"Extending throughput and capacity that enables high-speed premium services like video and IPTV are service providers' primary objectives," said Tony Bates, general manager of Cisco's Service Provider Routing Technology Group.
"Cisco developed the four-slot CRS-1 in direct response to requests from our service provider customers which wanted to deploy the 40Gbps CRS-1 with a smaller form factor and less capital expenditure per deployment."
BT is standardising its next-generation network infrastructure on the CRS-1, and Cisco said that the operator has been testing the new four-slot models.
The four-slot CRS-1 will be available in November at a starting price of $160,000.
