The researchers from University College London achieved the new world record for the fastest internet of 178 terabits a second, which is five times faster than the previous world record held by a team in Japan and close to the theoretical limitations of the data transmission set out by American mathematician Claude Shannon in 1949. This means if that data connection were wired to your home broadband, it would allow you to download 22million HD photos in under a second, and download more than 220 4K-quality movies in a second.
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.

To identify the most suitable colo candidates, many users begin with a simple web search referencing the desired geographical locations. Then, to shortlist the options, users generally evaluate candidates on 12 attributes, including capacity, reliability, efficiency, telecom, risk avoidance, managed services, financial stability, expertise, and costs. Factors most important to some enterprises, such as low cost or cloud direct-connect circuit availability, may be less important to others who might be focused on scalability or cooling density instead. Users must prioritize features and benefits when down-selecting candidate facilities for further consideration.
Sumitomo has been awarded a contract for the Stikine Crossing Submarine Cable Replacement Project from Southeast Alaska Power Agency (SEAPA). The project involves replacing a 138kV OF (Oil Filled) submarine power cable with an environmentally friendly 69kV XLPE (Cross-linked polyethylene) submarine cable with ancillary equipment for a fully functional system in the Stikine crossing (approx. 16,700 feet) between Vank and Woronkofski Islands, near Wrangell, Alaska, USA.
The new 5G technology will considerably improve a large number of services and accelerates the digital transformation of an industry. With massive and low-latency connectivity, 5G can revolutionize the robotics industry, especially when it is combined with MEC (Mobile or Multi-access Edge Compute).
Why High-Precision Fiber Optic Testing & Measurement is Important for Revolutionizing Data Transmission & Cloud Storage
