  • In April 2011 at the Optical Fiber Communications Conference in Los Angeles two research groups demonstrated the ability to transfer over 100 Tbps through optical fiber. That’s like downloading 250 Blu-Ray movies in 1 second. NEC Laboratories America reached 101.7 Tbps over standard single-mode fiber using pilot based phase noise mitigation. Sumitomo Electric Industries in Japan reached 109Tbps using spatial division multiplexed signals over a seven-core fiber.  The Sumitomo group sent 97 colors through each of the cores at data rates of 172Gbps (two 86Gbps QPSK signals) over 16.8 km of fiber. The implications of this research is astounding, this means that by 2020 we could have this kind of speed on our home internet connection.  The information superhighway would […]
