World’s Fastest Internet Of 178 tbps Recorded, Can Download Entire Netflix In 1 Sec – Insiderfolks, The fastest speed was set by researchers at the University College in London.
A peak Internet transmission speed of 178 terabits per second (tbps) was reached by a team of engineers at the University College London ( UCL). At this point, all of the Netflix material could be accessed in only one second.
The team consisted of Dr Lidia Galdino (UCL Electronic & Electrical Engineering) who was the main researcher in collaboration with two firms, Xtera and KDDI Science.
The new speed is four times higher than the previous maximum Internet speed of 44.2 tbps achieved in Australia in May.
Researchers from Monash, Swinburne and RMIT universities have successfully measured and reported the highest data speed on the Internet from a single optical device.
However, current internet rates have been reached by sending data across a far broader spectrum of light colors or wavelengths than is usually found with optical fibers.
Researchers also integrated the multiple amplifier technology required to improve signal strength over this broader spectrum and maximized pace by creating new Geometric Forming (GS) (patterns of signal configurations that allow maximum use of the distance, brightness, and polarization properties of light) and tuning the properties of wavelength.
The benefit of this strategy is that it can be extended cost-effectively to current networks by updating the amplifiers installed on optical fiber roads at 40-100 km intervals.
At this point, it will take less than an hour to retrieve the data that was the first picture of a black hole in the universe.
The current pace obtained is similar to the theoretical limit of data transmission established by American mathematician Claude Shannon in 1949.
Dr Galdino said: “Regardless of the COVID-19 issue, internet traffic has risen dramatically over the last 10 years, and this entire rise in data demand is attributed to the cost per bit dropping.
The advancement of emerging technology is vital to continuing this move towards lower prices whilst fulfilling potential data rate demands that will continue to grow, with apps that will change people’s lives as yet unimaginable.
