SAN JOSE, Calif — The "pipes" of the Internet will be crucial to the success of an increasingly video-rich Internet and Cisco is putting in place a number of solutions, says Scott Puopolo, VP for Internet Business, in this interview with Beet.TV

To frame the enormity, Puopolo cites an Intel study which forecasts some 500 billion hours of video up on the Net by 2015.

Today, we will be covering the relationship between video and the computing and distribution power of the Internet as we cover the GigaOM "Structure" event here in New York.
