UK Researchers Break Speed Record for Network Transmission

  2. 2. INTRODUCTION  Michael Marlowe serves as the new director of strategy and vice president of new markets for Chasetek in Columbus, OH. An experienced telecommunications broker, Michael Marlowe helps customers in Columbus, OH, and throughout the world connect with vendors that meet their high-speed network infrastructure needs. In 2016 scientists at University College London created new fiber-optic technology that delivers data at 50,000 times the UK’s average download speed (24 megabits per second). Data transfers at 1.125 terabits per second, making it possible to download a complete, high-definition television series in just a fraction of a second. The fastest fiber-optic cables on the market today can only transmit 100 gigabits per second. The new technology functions by transmitting 15 light pulses simultaneously at different frequencies, which are then processed by a special receiver. The developers are calling it “super-channel” technology and claim that it will revolutionize broadband access. Their next plan is to test its ability to transfer data across the UK’s thousands of miles of fiber-optic cables.
