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.
