Fiber Optics Provide Lightning Speeds Have you ever wondered what it would be like to deliver internet speeds even faster that what we have available today? We all know how it is. Maybe you are playing your favourite game over your internet connection. Gaming uses up many resources and can tend to run slow or seem to skip at some times. Maybe you are trying to download your favourite movie. That movie, depending on your connection speed, can take literally hours to wait for. Perhaps you want to upload a video to YouTube that is a little longer than usual. Well, buckle up, because you are bound to be waiting for a while.
Maybe your issue is that you would just like your pages and email to load up faster, instead of wasting time staring at the screen. Whatever the issue is, a solution may soon be in sight and available at your fingertips. A new technique with data transmission has been developed by the collaboration of Nokia Bell Labs, Deutsche Telekom T-Labs, and the Technical University of Munich.
This new method will be able to carry speeds of one terabit per second all over optical fiber. This new technology will also be able to handle network loads that would normally drag it down. Nokia Fiber Optics will be able to deliver speeds that are about 1,000 times faster than Google Fiber which delivers one gigabit per second. That will make a two-minute movie download with Google Fiber, available in literally seconds. This will allow huge orders to be processed and afford the ability to quickly adapt to the demands of network traffic.
The performance will be hugely improved, bringing us fully into a new digital era of possibilities. While these speeds have been attainable in the past, over long distances, they failed to meet the needs of network loads and traffic. After finagling with the lower amplitudes and constellation points, it seems that the perfect combination has been discovered and will prove to benefit the rate at which communications and operations function today. The technology has been tested in real world situations and has performed very well. As our needs for higher capacity networks grow, it is a huge possibility that this new technique will be available to the general population within the next few coming years.
