Cisco Unveils Content Networking Capabilities

Cisco Systems Inc. introduced Cisco Web NS 4.0, a new service networking layer which transparently and intelligently directs traffic to enable more efficient and cost-effective delivery of Web content and e-services.

Cisco Web NS 4.0 enables an Internet that performs content-based switching and routing, dynamic content distribution and replication, and the ability to deploy a global content networking infrastructure across the Internet.

Cisco Web NS 4.0 is supported on the family of Cisco 11000 Series Content Service Switches. New content networking innovations include distributed and scalable proximity services that allow service providers to offer content delivery networks for large-scale global deployments; user-tailored Web services that enable e-businesses to direct users to servers optimized for their preferred device types, browsers, and languages; content-request remapping; and domain-specific request processing for online businesses.
