[rawstory/bbc]New Internet tech transmits data at 26 terabytes per second

In a dramatic breakthrough, scientists have learned how to use optical fiber to transmit data over a single laser at speeds that dwarf even today's fastest Internet connections.

Using techniques called "fast Fourier transform" and "orthogonal frequency division multiplexing," scientists at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology in Germany were able to stitch 300 individual data streams into colors beamed by a single laser, which were then picked apart at the other end.

The result of their experiment was a blazing fast transfer rate of 26 terabytes per second.

Impressive technology....

When is this coming to the USA? Because apparently foreign countries seem to be getting faster service for cheaper at the moment

Impressive.... but at what range?


I guess the article writer does not have a background in engineering.... FFT and OFDM are nothing new in themselves. FFT is used all over the place to convert analogue to digital signals. OFDM is used for cellular technology. I assume these techniques are already currently in use in today's fiber optics. It's like saying the they were able to transfer 10Gb/s over copper cable using electricity! What is novel about what this technique?

(BTW, LinPack/Prime95 stress tests comprises of FFT.)

I don't know what we'd DO with that kind of speed. It would be DANGEROUS as a skilled hacker can compromise the entire database of huge corporations/government agencies within seconds! Considering their connection can upload at the same speeds of course... as well as hard drives capable of writing quick enough.

This would be for network backbones.
