Obviously with the boom in online video consumption, some network hardware and software providers are seeing strong growth in purchases of networking equipment to deliver online video. There is an interesting post on Gigaom which details the fact that Cisco Systems is selling a lot of its top-of-the-line CRS-1 routers.
"The San Jose-based router and switch maker said that the total global cumulative shipments of CRS-1 Routers have doubled in less than nine months, rising from a total of 900 units shipped through June 2007 to more than 1,800 units shipped through March 2008. Cisco predicts that the Internet video traffic will be twenty times the traffic in 2006."
