fibre optic cable spectrum colours

27th October, 2014 - 4:50 pm (3 Comments)

A team of Dutch scientists working at the Eindhoven University of Technology have built a new type of fibre optic cable with seven cores (traditional cables often have only a single core for laser light to travel down), which has enabled them to push an astonishing data speed of 255Tbps (Terabits per second) over a single 1km long link.

Austrian ISP A1 Telekom (Telekom Austria Group) and Alcatel-Lucent claim to have connected the first customer in the world to a domestic copper telecoms network using G.fast (ITU G.9700/1) technology, which some predict could eventually replace BT’s up to 80Mbps capable Fibre-to-the-Cabinet (FTTC) service in the United Kingdom.

Electronics giant Samsung claims to have successfully delivered record setting Mobile Broadband speeds of a staggering 7.5Gbps (Gigabits per second) using a prototype of their next generation 5G technology, with the uninterrupted speeds falling away to 1.2Gbps when the service was tested while travelling at just over 60Mph (Miles per hour) on a 4.35km long racetrack.

The joint £94m BT and Connecting Devon and Somerset project in England has successfully used a “pioneering new” 4 kilometre microwave radio link to help supply capacity for an FTTC (up to 80Mbps) equipped Street Cabinet in the remote Devon village of Northlew, which would have otherwise required the installation of an expensive fibre optic cable.

Samsung are next year aiming to become one of the first companies to commercialise the potential of last year’s officially approved 802.11ad standard for WiFi wireless networking, which could eventually deliver speeds of up to 7 Gigabits per second (Gbps) using the unlicensed 60GHz (57-66GHz) radio spectrum band.

BT and Huawei have successfully harnessed a “record spectral efficiency” of 5.97bit/s/Hz in order to deliver super channel speeds of 3Tbps (Terabits per second) over an existing 359km long fibre optic link using commercial grade hardware and software in a real world environment.

A team of scientists working at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) has broken a new record after they were able to use a single laser to transmit data speeds of 43Tbps (Terabits per second) over a single fibre optic cable, which is important because this kind of setup is arguably reflective of a real-world environment.

Telecom giant Alcatel-Lucent appears, perhaps to the dismay of fibre optic campaigners, to have given the traditional copper telephone line a new lease of life after its Bell Labs research division claimed to set a new world record by delivering “ultra-broadband” speeds of 10,000Mbps (Megabits per second) over the aging infrastructure using a prototype technology called XG-FAST (G.fast2?).

Telecoms giants Ericsson and Japanese operator NTT DOCOMO have taken their experimental 5G based Mobile Broadband technology a step forward by conducting one of the first live, over-the-air, demonstrations of the new service running at speeds of 5.8Gbps (Gigabits per second) using the 15GHz band of radio spectrum.

5g mobile broadband

16th June, 2014 - 9:47 am (3 Comments)

The next generation of 5G based Mobile Broadband services, which could deliver speeds of up to 10Gbps (Gigabits per second) or more, appeared to come a step closer today after Europe and South Korea signed a new deal that will see both working jointly towards a global definition of the new standard and to cooperate in research.

Birmingham-based Aston University in England has launched a new £1.5m international project called Petabit Energy Aware Capacity Enhancement (PEACE) that aims to “significantly improve bandwidth” and “reduce energy consumption” on our major fibre optic networks, which carry over 99% of all network and Internet data.

The Cloud, a public wireless Internet hotspot operator owned by BSkyB (Sky Broadband), has noted how similar technology to that already used in wifi networks could soon help everything from Smartphones to possibly even electric Cars get recharged while surfing the Internet and without needing to be plugged in.

People concerned that wireless radiation from mobile services operating in the electromagnetic spectrum (radio), such as those used for Mobile Phones and Mobile Broadband (e.g. 900MHz and 1800MHz), can rest a little easier today after an 11-year long and £13.6m UK study found “no evidence” of biological or adverse health effects.

Mention words like Microwave or Radiation and some people will instantly conjure up frightening images of nuclear disasters, three headed dogs and of course.. Justin Bieber. The latter is particularly horrifying but not when it nearly scuppers a seemingly harmless rural broadband project (the wireless aspect not Bieber).
