Scientists Have Successfully Developed New High-speed Fibers With Transmission Speeds Up To 1Pb Per Second.
Dec 05, 2018

The fiber research and development team consists of scientists from Macquarie University in conjunction with Hokkaido University in Japan and the National Institute of Information and Communication Technology in Japan.


This new high-speed fiber is identical in size to current conventional fibers, and each fiber is almost as thick as human hair.




The transmission speed is 12 times that of the current fiber:


At present, the transmission speed of each large submarine cable is around 100Tbps. This is a technical reason and not the operators do not want to build a larger capacity.


Therefore, the most direct effect of this high-speed fiber of up to 1Pb per second is the rapid increase in the capacity of submarine cable in the future to reduce the repeated construction period.


In terms of capacity, the new high-speed fiber is 12 times faster than the current standard fiber transmission speed, so the submarine cable will soon move to the Tb level.



The research team said in the media sharing:


Due to the growing demand for streaming video and the development of artificial intelligence technology, Internet data transmission and usage have been exploding exponentially.


However, the high-speed fiber diameters before this have generally increased, and the increase in diameter means that the fiber is more susceptible to damage to the fiber body due to bending and pulling.


The new high-speed fiber developed this time is almost the same diameter as the standard fiber. The narrow diameter means it is not easily damaged and can also save construction costs.


The new high-speed fiber will be used by the Australian National Broadband Network to build metropolitan area networks and large-scale submarine cable projects.


Unit conversion prompt: 1Pb=1, 024Tb=1, 024,000Gb=1,024,000,000Mb (1B=8bit, note that all are small b is not B)
