The sound you hear is the RIAA and the BPI expiring from apoplexy!
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, …
If you need something doing...based on the figures here:
The demo link was thus able to deliver 'pleasingly sharp' gratification at an impressive 15.6killowrist, and the proposed switch was just a few tissues short of the mythical Megawrist barrier that has eluded desperate boffins so far.
Deutsche Telekom is also one of the providers which complains about their customers using the Internet to much.
I mean think of it. 512 GBits per wavelength per fiber! That's a lot, particularly since Deutsche Telekom is not exactly a company known for having the smartest beans in the pot, and you'd expect that technology to be available in commercial products, soon.
(Ignore the text and just look at the acting, here they are determining phone numbers, the rest of the story is how their boss complains about 2 customers getting assigned the same number)
Same here. No cap on Deutsche Telekom.
Back when I was a tester for SUSE Linux, I would mampf my way through 3-400GB a month with ease. DT never batted an eyelid.
We looked at Fibre, here at work, last year. Telekom wanted around 2K€ a month for 10MB symetrical. I hate to think how expensive that link would be!
"We are very proud of having attained this tremendous transmission performance *over the Internet* under real-world conditions" (my emphasis)
So are they tunnelling photons inside IP packets and sending them over the commodity Internet? Or is there just a shortage of clue in the PR department?
Typical telco exaggeration as in( Subtracting out the error-correction overhead, the total usable bandwidth was 400Gb/s ) we should all note that Gb/s is the abbreviation GigaBYTES per second and bits is done with a small g. Typical telcos trying to slip in a factor of 8 times more than reality just like with the ATT 4G Lite which is really 3G. We did a spoof of this stuff called MEGA BS in Telcoland = http://www.ideapete.com/megaBS.html
