fibre optic cables on pcb circuit board

13th June, 2022 (0 Comments)

Following last year’s successful lab tests, Nokia has brought their future 100G PON (Passive Optical Network) technology to be showcased at the “Fiber Connect” event in Nashville (USA). The new kit is capable of delivering full fibre 100Gbps speeds in downstream on a single PON wavelength in a real-world environment.

7th June, 2022 (10 Comments)

A team of network researchers from the National Institute of Information and Communications Technology (NICT) in Japan has done it again after they achieved the “world’s first” successful data transmission of 1.02 Petabits per second (Pbs) in a standard cladding diameter (0.125 mm) multi-core fibre cable over a distance of 51.7km.

New-mmW-5G-and-6G-beam-steering-antenna-design

6th June, 2022 (8 Comments)

A team from the University of Birmingham‘s School of Engineering in England has developed a new beam-steering antenna for future 5G and 6G mobile (mobile broadband) networks, which claims to have achieved “vast improvements in data transmission efficiency” via a range of frequencies that are “inaccessible” to existing technologies.

20th May, 2022 (0 Comments)

Scientists have found a way to further improve the detection of earthquakes by harnessing the unique properties of existing subsea fibre optic cables – specifically their repeaters, which straddle the ocean floors between countries and are used to carry vast amounts of data. The study used the 5,860km EXAI cable between the UK and Canada.

Signal tower service concept

18th May, 2022 (12 Comments)

Telecoms giant BT (EE) has begun to trial a new “hyper-sensitive quantum antenna technology using excited atomic states,” which represents a new way of detecting radio waves that could find much weaker signals than conventional receivers and thus boost the capabilities of future 5G mobile (broadband) and IoT networks.

12th May, 2022 (22 Comments)

South Korean tech giant Samsung, which has historically played a major role in the development of new mobile network technologies, has this week published some of its early research findings into the future 6th Generation (6G) of mobile broadband technology and set out what sort of technologies it may incorporate.

28th April, 2022 (34 Comments)

New research from the University of Cambridge – supported by BT and Huawei – has attempted to identify the theoretical limits of Openreach’s standard UK copper broadband lines (unshielded twisted copper pairs), while harnessing up to 12GHz of spectrum. The result is faster speeds are possible, but full fibre is still the future.

Stratospheric Platforms Picture Above the Earth

3rd March, 2022 (6 Comments)

Cambridge-based company Stratospheric Platforms has announced the “world’s first” 5G (mobile broadband) transmission from Earth’s stratosphere, which at 45,000ft managed to maintain the signal for 5 hours and achieve a broadband download speed of 90Mbps to a retail Smartphone on the ground.

3rd December, 2021 (10 Comments)

The Royal Astronomical Society (RAS) has warned that new Low Earth Orbit (LEO) based ultrafast broadband satellites, such as from SpaceX’s Starlink and British-registered OneWeb, will have a “significant” impact on radio astronomers and could put at risk hundreds of millions of pounds of UK investment in space research.

world broadband internet speed

10th November, 2021 (0 Comments)

The UK Government will today launch its election manifesto as part of efforts to secure a seat on the governing council of the International Telecommunications Union (ITU), which will give it more of a say in future standards (broadband, satellite technologies etc.) and the allocation of global spectrum (mobile etc.) etc.

satellite internet transmission dish

8th November, 2021 (3 Comments)

The 5G RuralDorset project, which is testing various 5G based mobile voice and broadband technologies alongside existing fibre cables, claims to have achieved a “world-first” by demonstrating satellite backhaul from a 5G Standalone network (i.e. using satellite to keep the connection live when terrestrial mobile fails).

BT Openreach Fibre Optic Digging Robot

8th November, 2021 (5 Comments)

Telecoms giant BT has confirmed that they’re working with the UK university sector and other utilities to develop and trial a new range of robots, which they hope could be used by Openreach and others to help speed up the rollout of gigabit-capable Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) broadband ISP networks and fix them when broken.

censored access internet

25th October, 2021 (25 Comments)

Several major UK broadband ISPs, including BT, EE, Plusnet, Sky Broadband, TalkTalk and Virgin Media (VMO2), have been ordered by London’s High Court to block six more streaming websites after they were found to be facilitating internet copyright infringement (piracy).

14th October, 2021 (28 Comments)

Budget broadband ISP TalkTalk has this week updated their list of blocked websites (i.e. those where they’ve been told to do so by the UK High Court) to include a number of new sites that, following an injunction secured by the Motion Picture Association (MPA), were found to be facilitating internet copyright infringement.

Nokia-Prototype-5G-360-mmWave-Device

13th October, 2021 (3 Comments)

Nokia claims to have moved closer to turning multi-gigabit speed capable 5G mmWave broadband for homes into a reality by developing a new type of “very high gain antenna” with a “360 Field of View,” which they say can overcome at least some of the usual signal propagation issues.

5th October, 2021 (17 Comments)

UK ISP BT and partner Toshiba have today announced that they intend to build the “world’s first” quantum-secured metro fibre optic network between commercial sites in London, which will adopt ultra-secure communications via the use of Quantum Key Distribution (QKD) and Post-Quantum Cryptography (PQC) encryption.

24th September, 2021 (5 Comments)

A team of Japanese scientists working at Keio University have managed to develop a solution for “error-free” plastic (polymer) optical fibre cables, which can solve some of the cost, delay and heat generation problems that have tended to restrict their use. Data speeds of 53Gbps (Gigabits per second) were achieved.
