Researchers at Deutsche Telekom's T-Labs have blasted bits at impressive velocity down a single optical fiber, breaking the previous long-distance data-transfer record by more than a factor of two.

The bit boffins achieved a 512 gigabits-per-second transmission rate over a single optical fiber from Berlin to Hanover and back, a distance of 734 kilometers. Subtracting out the error-correction overhead, the total usable bandwidth was 400Gb/s – enough, T-labs points out, to transmit a stream of data equivalent to 77 music CDs in one second.

Now I wonder who would want to do that? ;)

This tremendous transmission performance was reached using innovative transmission technology with two carrier frequencies, two polarization planes, 16-QAM quadrature amplitude modulation and digital offline signal processing for the equalization of fiber influences with soft-FEC forward error correction decoding in the receiver


Ah, yes.... That sounds reasonable. And I am sure they could further increase the performance by recalibrating the deflector beam and rerouting auxiliary power from the warp drive through the plasma conduits.

Make it so.

Hope they remember.. "don't cross the streams"..

I'm just shivering with anticipation of all those lovely rich media sites I can put up! :)

This could be, if implemented, a very good thing. No changes in infrastructure and higher throughput.

That's the exciting part. No need to lay new fiber as it works with existing, just replace the equipment at the end points. That makes it much more likely to see some of this actually happen in the not too distant future.

Plug that into this bad boy [theregister.co.uk] and we can start transporting matter. :-P

From where I live, what infrastructure? LOL.

I keep reminding myself that Telefonica España is, I believe, second largest telecomunications business in the world. Bit of a joke really..... unless, like me, you rely on them!

Much easier just to reverse the polarity of the neutron flow.

Add this new IBM kit to the mix and golly gee!

Need to get a lot of data - and I mean a lot of data - around your system? Look no further than this new chip from IBM: a part capable of shifting one trillion bits every second.

It's only a prototype, of course, but the part Big Blue marketing bods are calling the Holey Optochip can, claim the companies' spin merchants, transfer 30,000 HD movies a minute - eight times faster than current optical transceivers can manage.

Don't you guys know anything? If this is going to work you have to reinforce the structural integrity field by diverting power from life support.
