Juniper hopes to boost Net with M40 router

A rapidly growing Internet requires rapidly growing routers, and Juniper last week stepped up to fill the need with an Internet backbone router that can move 40 million packets per second.

The M40 is one of the first routers on this scale, about 10 times faster than Cisco System's 12000. But even faster routers are on the horizon.

By next year, startups such as Avici Systems and Pluris plan to roll out routers that can scale up to terabits per second, a huge step up from the M40's 40Gb per second.
