Is Cisco's New Announced Router Really Enough?

_damnit_ (1143) writes "With 100mbps home internet service being promised by nearly every consumer provider in the coming years and with Google floating the idea of 1Gbps trials, is Cisco's newly announced product really enough to satisfy the bandwidth needs of the coming internet? With talk of the CRS-3 having a capacity of 322Tbps and 100Gbps fibre trials at AT&T it sounds like it unless the ISPs deliver faster speeds quickly and the "Next Big Thing" comes along to gobble bandwidth. Are there good sites out there which show the current and projected utilization of the backbones? Are we all destined to be sitting on 1Gbps pipes to the home/office with backhauls that can't come close to handling the traffic as we see now with some wireless providers?"
