NEW YORK (CNNMoney) — In a world where we’re constantly connected and video sucks up an ever-growing chunk of precious bandwidth, Internet service providers are getting desperate for ways to crank up their speed.

Networking challenger Alcatel-Lucent (ALU) is about to give them what they want.

The company announced Tuesday that it has developed the “7950 XRS,” a core Internet router that is capable of speeds up to five times faster than those of its nearest competitor. Just one 7950 XRS router can deliver 16 terabits of data per second. That’s about 2.5 million HD video streams every tick of the second hand.
