Prysmian, Nokia Bell Labs and the National Institute of Information and Communications Technology have achieved a record-setting 1 Petabit per second transmission over an optical fiber with standard dimensions. The experiment combines highly spectral efficient wideband optical transmission with an optical fiber guiding 15 spatial modes and the use of specific mode multiplexers. The total capacity of the network has been 1 Petabit per second, corresponding to simultaneous 8K-TV broadcasting for 10 million people.
The pandemic changed everything: the way we work, teach, learn, attend conferences, shop and entertain ourselves. If we managed to avoid the virus, it even changed how we consult with our healthcare providers. “In person” became “online” for many of our everyday activities, putting a big strain on the world’s broadband networks. That the current network has been able to absorb all the extra traffic is miraculous, although the bulk of additional video calls, classes and other communications occurred during the day, which lessened the impact.
Everstream will launch fiber cable deployments in seven Midwest markets to support 5G mobile network requirements. The company says the 1,047 route miles of fiber networks will help to connect more than 2,000 macro cell towers in those markets and offer backhaul support.
Companies in the fiber optic connectors market are relying on the rapidly growing 5G networking infrastructure to keep businesses running during and post the COVID-19 era. This explains why analysts at TMR predict that the fiber optic connectors market is projected to clock a favorable CAGR of 7.5% during the assessment period.
