Breakthrough fiberoptic cable 2,500X faster than fastest int

Post #1 by Gregster » Wed Dec 03, 2014 11:30 pm

ernet....

Imagine downloading your favorite flick in 31 thousandths of a second. Such insane internet speeds are now a reality, with researchers rolling out a 255 terabits per second fiberoptic network which could transport the entire Internet on a single cable.

The cable, the joint effort of Dutch and US scientists, is 2,550 times faster than the fastest single-fiber links in commercial operation today.

In real terms, it could transfer a 1 GB movie in 0.03 milliseconds or the entire contents of your 1 terabit hard drive in about 31 milliseconds.

At this speed, a single fiber optic cable could theoretically carry the all the data on the internet at peak times.

But how does it work?

Researchers from Eindhoven University of Technology and the University of Central Florida employed a well-known but still cost-prohibitive technology; multi-mode fiber.

Normal fibre optic cables contain thousands of strands of glass or plastic fibre which are slightly thicker than the thread of a needle. These fibers can, in essence, only carry the light for a single laser.

The multi-mode fiber used by the researchers in contrast, has seven distinct cores in a hexagonal shape which are able to carry just as many distinct signals at one time. What’s more, they are squeezed down into the size of the same kind of fiber optic cables used to support the current transatlantic internet cables.

It will happen but not for a few years I suspect.

I remember our good friend Daemon Cantor aka Sean go into complete detail about this 3 or more years ago.
Funny how then it was generally scoffed at. In fact many of the things he mentioned at a time were either scoffed
at or ignored. Funnier yet we see them coming to fruition. Salute DC .. where ever you are.

Awesome. The future is bright for 'the game'. .c.
