Key Fiber Optic Power and Distance Barriers Broken
Cool! Here's some other Fiber news.
While not the impressive distance...
single super-channel optical transport network (OTN) card with a transmission speed of a pretty hefty 1Tbps, running along Proximus' optical backbone.
The companies claim their approach increases the capacity on a fiber cable by compressing the gaps between transmission channels. "The technique increases the density of the transmission channels on fiber, making it around 150 per cent more efficient than today’s typical 100Gbps core network links," they said.
Now if they could combine them...
