The world’s fastest fiber was born! Can send 5.4 terabytes per second


Beijing time on August 3, morning news, technical university of Denmark, a research team has been successfully implemented, the use of single fiber and a single laser beam to realize the data transfer rate of 43 -tbps. Use of this technology, the download size 0.2 millisecond time for 1 gb of film.

43 -tbps transmission rate is equivalent to send 5.4 terabytes per second, or 5300 gb of content. Previous data transmission speed record from Germany karlsruhe institute of technology. In 2011, the school’s researchers achieved 26 -tbps transmission rate.

here it is worth noting that the technical university of Denmark by using single fiber and a single laser realized this rate. Theory of data transfer rate than the technical university of Denmark the results obtained. However, the results based on the Internet infrastructure, and this kind of architecture with single fiber, single laser emitter configuration.

technical university of Denmark in the experiment using the multi-core optical fiber and single laser. Multi-fiber multiple transmission of the optical fiber channel are permitted to carry light signals. The school’s researchers used from Japan NTT (33.29, 0.03, 0.09%) of 7 core optical fiber. In fact, NTT has announced that it will deploy the multicore fiber in Japan. Commercial network today the fastest speed of just over 100 GBPS. Therefore, if the technical university of Denmark will lead to the commercialization of research, so the future of Internet speed will increase greatly. (d)
