Scientists claim to have set a new record for the fastest internet speed, with the help of which one thousand HD movies can be downloaded in just one second.
According to Sky News, scientists from Australia have claimed that the Internet speed reaches 44.2 terabits per second (TBPS), which is millions of times higher than the average broadband speed in different countries, such as 64 in the UK. Megabits per second.
TBPS Internet speeds have so far been achieved in the laboratory, but the system has been able to work in Australia’s fiber optic network, allowing companies to provide high-speed broadband to customers.
The research team set a new record using existing infrastructure, supported by a device called Microcomb, which replaced 80 lasers in existing telecommunications hardware.
Microcomb is also a laser source and is said to be a single chip made of hundreds of high quality infrared lasers.
Each laser or specific frequency has the ability to use a separate communication channel.
While this may work in Australia’s fiber optic network, it may not be the case in most countries where copper wires are relied upon.
Researcher and Dr. Bill Corkorn of Monash University said that with the increase in homework, social media and streaming as a result of the Coronavirus epidemic, we learned how to increase Internet infrastructure in 2-3 years.
“The current situation shows the extent to which we need to increase the capacity of our internet connections,” he said.
“Our research demonstrates the potential of the fiber network that is currently on the ground, which will be the backbone of communications networks now and in the future,” he said.
“What we are developing will be able to meet the needs of the future. This data will be available for automated driving vehicles and future transportation, helping the pharmaceutical, education, finance and e-commerce industries,” he said. Will be found
The findings were published in the journal General Nature Communications.
