The Register claims that Cisco is going to release a new family of low-end routers today. There aren’t a whole lot of details on the new 1800/2800/3800 series yet, but the low end of Cisco’s line could use a lot of cleanup. There’s apparently some rumor about Linux-based line cards, but I’m not exactly sure where that’s coming from. I wouldn’t be surprised by a Linux-based IDS module for the new devices, I guess.
