Danes Take Back Fastest Data Transfer Title

Aug 6, 2014 |

The team that broke the terabit barrier in 2009 is at it again. This time the High-Speed Optical Communications (HSOC) team at the Technical University of Denmark accomplished a record-smashing 43 terabits per second (Tbps) transfer speed over a single optical fiber with just one laser transmitter. That’s equivalent to a transfer rate of around 5.4 Read more…
