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.)
Lol literally was reading through this thread to see if anyone else knew what they were talking about. Learned about OFDM in my wireless classes last year. This technology is absolutely nothing new.
All they did was use existing technology and apply it to the different colors of light in fiber optics. So just went from copper to fiber.
