Researchers at TU Eindhoven and the CREOL university in Florida announced they sent a record amount of data over fibre optics. Their research was presented in the journal Nature Photonics. The researchers achieved a throughput speed of 255 Tbps (net 200 Tbps) over a fibre cable 1 km long. On a single frequency on one fibre a speed of 5.1 Tbps was reached (net 4 Tbps). The top speed was achieved through multiplexing 50 frequencies on a 50 GHz grid. The researchers expect it will take around five years for the technology to be ready for commercial deployment.
