Scientists achieve 3.28 terabits per second
Scientists have managed to transfer data at 3.28 terabits per second (420GB) over three sections of 100 kilometers each.
The scientists at Bell Labs have managed to interconnect via amplifiers over three sections of 100 kilometers each, to realize a data transmission of 3.28 terabits per second (420GB). The whole thing was tested under laboratory conditions because a new type of fiberglass that had not been developed for series production was used. At the moment our fiber optic networks are only fast 10 gigabit/s per channel.
