Infinera hits record transatlantic cable speed of 26 Tbps over Marea cable

Tuesday 26 February 2019 | 10:21 CET | News
Infinera announced that a team of its researchers have achieved new transatlantic fibre-optic cable speeds of 26.2 terabits per second over Marea, a 6,600 km cable between Virginia Beach, Virginia and Bilbao, Spain. Using an emerging approach for how the light signals are transmitted – called 16QAM modulation – the team nearly doubled data capacity and approached the theoretical limit for such a transfer, said Infinera.
