Just last August, Globe launched the Southeast Asia-United States (SEA-US) cable system that has a design capacity of 20 Tbps
capacity and directly links Asia to the US.
Out of the current bandwidth capacity of more than 16 Tbps
, Globe's "lit-up" capacity is less than three Tbps
as the rest of the bandwidth remain unused due to insufficient last mile infrastructure.
Therefore, considering optical signals in excess of 1 Tbps
multiplexed from ten wavelengths, for example, the new method can process them using just one-tenth of the power or less compared to previous technologies that required a separate circuit to convert each wavelength into an electrical signal and back.
This full-scale multi-terabit transmission, which took place on the Orange optical fiber infrastructure of its operational network during a trial that lasted several weeks, is a world record, not only in terms of global data capacity transported (38.4 Tbps
), but also in the transmission distance (762 km / 472 miles).
in comparison to all TBPs
show highest sorption tendency as after SDS pretreatment TBPs
surface is loaded with the negatively charged groups that provide more attachment sites for Cu (II) ions.
This new optical link, with capacity four times higher than the maximum bandwidth currently available and using 44 wavelengths, can transmit up to 17.6 Terabits per second (Tbps
) of traffic in total.
Mr Ruggeri Telecom explained that the system has a design capacity of 5.12 Tbps
and supported by the new 40 Gbps wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) technology that would accommodate futures ultra-broadband networks.
In Middle East and Africa, average Internet traffic will reach 5 Tbps
in 2015, the equivalent of 4,500,000 people streaming Internet HD video simultaneously.
It will cross the Mediterranean Sea, connecting Darna in eastern Libya with Chania, Greece and will have an initial capacity of 7 x 10 Gbps and a maximum theoretical capacity of 1.2 Tbps
At CERN, the current non-blocking capacity of the core is in the region of 4.2 Terabits per second (Tbps
), and has doubled in the last two years.
By using the latest 40 gigabits per second (Gbps) per wavelength technology, the cable is expected to have a capacity of up to 5.12 terabits per second (Tbps
), and will be further upgradeable to beyond 12 Tbps
with future 100 Gbps per wavelength technology.
