Researchers at Japan’s National Institute of Information and Communication Technologies (NICT) have nearly smashed the internet speed record: 319 terabytes per second.
a Engadget He writes that the Japanese team of researchers “smashed” the Internet speed record, reaching an impressive level 319 terabytes per second (terabits per second).
In August last year, a team of British and Japanese scientists managed to achieve a transmission of 179 terabytes per second. The newly acquired brand is almost twice the size of the 2020 brand.
The results of the experiment were reveal On June 11 at the International Conference on Fiber Optic Communication.
Engineers used new optical fiber cable technology to set a new record. According to Gateway, the team sent data over this type of cable — a laser with 552 channels of different wavelengths — to simulate a transmission distance. Three thousand kilometers No signal or speed degradation.
Experience allowed to demonstrate the capabilities of a fiber optic cable with Four cores (instead of just one), a technique that can be easily implemented in existing systems to increase speed.
“It is hoped that these fibers will allow transmission of a large number of data in the short term,” wrote the authors of the scientific article, citing them. Motherboard, adding that innovation can lead to future communication technology, Already after 5G.
