World Internet Speed ​​Record in Australia

Researchers in Australia have set a global Internet speed record of 44,2 terabits per second, allowing users to download 1.000 HD movies in one second.

A team from Monash, Swinburne and RMIT used a "micro-comb" optical chip that contains hundreds of infrared lasers for transport. data through the existing communications infrastructure in Melbourne.

The highest commercial internet speed anywhere in the world today is in Singapore, where the average download speed is 197,3 megabits per second (mbps).

"There is a global struggle right now to take this technology to the commercial stage, as the micro-comb at its heart is useful in a really wide range of existing technologies," said Dr Bill Corcoran of Monash University. in The Independent.

"I guess we could see devices like ours available in research labs in two to three years and initial commercial use in about five years."

Staying at home from the corona's pandemic has put significant pressure on Internet infrastructure in recent months.

In Europe, streaming providers were asked to downgrade their services in March to increase traffic. The Netflix and YouTube was among those who agreed to reduce image quality for users.

Applying the micro-comb device will alleviate this problem, according to the researchers.

"In the UK, data requirements have more than doubled during the day and special efforts have been made to ensure that connections are reliable," said Dr. Corcoran.

"What this extra use offers us is to take a look at the capacity issues that networks will see in a few years - especially as there will be a thirst for online technologies such as 5G, motor cars andinternet-of- things”More broadly.

"Therefore, we will need new compact technologies such as our nail-sized device to extend the data transfer capacity of our networks thanks to - to reduce space and energy consumption, as well as costs, while increasing overall data rates. Our demonstration also shows that the device we produced is compatible with the existing fiber optic infrastructure. "

The findings were published in the journal Nature Communications on Friday.
