Researchers Shatter Bandwidth Record Using Existing 4-Core Fiber Cables

Researchers at the National Institute of Information and Communications Technology (NICT) in Japan have achieved greater than 1 Petabit per second (Pb/s) data transfers using 4-core fiber with standard cladding. The key advance, facilitating this new transfer speed record, is the transmission system’s support for optical bandwidth exceeding 20 THz. This beefy bandwidth comes largely…
