Standard Fiber Optic Tech Achieves Record 1.53 Petabit per Second Transmissions

A team of researchers with the Network Research Institute of the National Institute of Information and Communications Technology (NICT, Japan) have achieved a new bandwidth world record over a single, standard-diameter optical fiber.  The researchers achieved a bandwidth of around 1.53 petabits per second by encoding information across 55 different light frequencies (a technique known…

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…
