The one thing that everyone craves for is lighting fast internet speed.
Don’t you wish that you can watch non-stop HD movies without buffering? Well the U.K. based company has just shown the way of making this all possible.
In a recent test by Alcatel-Lucent and BT, they managed to achieve the speeds of 1.4 TB(terabits) per seconds and just to give an idea how of speed with 1.4 terabytes/second speed you can transfer 44 uncompressed HD movies in one second. How is that for a speed!
The test was done using complex laser technology, the technology emphasis on better distribution of the present bandwidth and utilizes it in a better way generating the possibility of high speed. Currently the speed of around 1000 MB(megabyte) has been achieved by Google but that would be negligible as compared to the 1.4 TB(terabyte) speed.
The technology is being implemented on the existing fiber network, which would mean that it will be cost effective and the internet bill wouldn’t burn a hole in your pocket. The test has been conducted on a 410km (255- mile) link between BT’s Central Tower and its site in Ipswich and this was the first time such high speed was tested outside of labs in a big environment.
The latest technology complex laser technology does open the pathway for faster internet on future but only concern is with the increase speed which is taken from the same fiber line, the potential of interference and error increase but as per Alcatel-Lucent and BT the test they conducted was successful and clearly shows the new technology is stable and error free.
Let’s hope the technology proves successful on a larger scale and we got a chance to try our hands on that blazing fast internet that we always dream of.
