Achieved a New speed record in fiber optic cable 57 Gbit / s
Currently the fastest cable network are based on optics, information is passed along the glass fiber, the performance so impressive that it`s hard to imagine that you can transfer in one second
You need evidence that the boundaries of modern optical technologies for data transfer constantly get innovative ideas and updates Can you imagine that Researchers from the University of Illinois reported that they set a new record for data transmission over fiber optic cable – 57 Gbit / s without packet loss or error.
More important, the experiment was conducted at room temperature – do not use any of the above methods of cooling, to attain this speed. Even when the temperature jumps to 85 degrees Celsius, the technology is able to provide 50 Gbit / s without any difficulties.
Researchers expect that the application of these new achievements, mainly in data centers, in places where there is a need to transfer large amounts of information, all the processes can exchange data much faster. The real challenge will be ensuring the real functioning of this technology to work over long distances, to prepare the infrastructure for the flow under 4K videos and all the extra bits that come with this increasingly widespread format. The research team, they led by Professor of computer and electrical engineering, those that are younger than this assistants Nick Holonyak and Curtis van.
