Danish Delight

Researchers at the Technical University of Denmark have transferred data down an optical fibre at 43Tbits/sec.

Transferring 1GByte in 200 micro-seconds is done using an NTT-developed fibre which is the same diameter as conventional fibre but uses seven threads.

The researchers used a single laser with a seven-way splitter.

The previous record download speed – 32Tbits/sec – record was held by Germany’s Karlsruhe Institut für Technologie.
