ZTE shows off 1.7TBps network
Chinese telecommunications company ZTE has demonstrated an optical fiber network transmitting at a blazing 1.7TBs!
The network which uses Wavelength Division Mutiplexing separtes data into different wavelengths and transmits them over the same optical fiber. In the demonstration, ZTE made use of 8 different channels, each transmitting at 216.4Gbps and covered a distance of 1,087 miles over standard optical cables.
Don’t hope of this coming to an ISP near you within the next 5 years though.
