Cisco Systems plans detail an announcement Tuesday that will "forever change the Internet."

Now Cisco isn't exactly modest about its statement and presentation on tap for Tuesday so it must have some mojo (or it'll disappoint a lot of us).

Cisco's announcement is planned for 8 a.m. PST and we'll cover it live. The only hint Cisco gave is that its innovation will have a wide impact on consumers, businesses and government.

So what's Cisco going to say?

It's likely that Cisco's announcement will focus on new networking gear to unclog pipes. Best case scenario: Cisco finds some way to alleviate a wireless spectrum crunch with new technology. If not, we'll take something that would double bandwidth in the wired world.

Speculation abounds so if you have a guess sound off.

  • Since it was reported on InformationWeek

    that they are pushing for faster speeds, along with Verizon's 100G trials, and the promises made by Google, I'd say they are entering the broadband speed race.

    • Google Chrome OS will be INSTANT ON

      And they will invest in bandwidth NOT

      • ????

        where did he talked about Windows? he talked about Chrome...


        PS: ChromeOS = worst idea ever.... an OS that you must be connected 100% of the time on the web?

        PPS: ...who needs Instant on anyway? can't you just wait a minute for the OS to boot?

      • Thanks ZeroSignal..

        Makes you wonder if this is the beginning of the end, to bundled service; when you can get everything under the sun from one source!

        It would have to be cheaper to do that however; which is something I doubt.

        Perhaps the satellite providers should be nervous?!

    My guess is that they have found a way to remove all traffic with gratuitous pictures of obama...

    Thereby reducing traffic more than getting rid of spam...

    It cannot be "instant on" unless it is consuming bandwidth and resources before being punched! We have enough resource hogs already!

  • QoS on the Internet?

    It would be cool to have all ISPs adopt gear (switches, routers) that would maintain simple (read "3 levels / realtime, near-realtime & whenever") QoS from start-to-finish -

    This is going to be 80% hype to try to recapture thunder stolen by Google when they announced huge bandwidth testing. The other 20% will be an actual technology rollout for wireless speed increases.

    Cisco plans to IPv6 enable their routers and get it right this time, by fixing BGP. They also plan to encrypt all traffic from source to destination so that networks become borderless? Do I win a coffee mug?
