Alcatel-Lucent gets the record for fastest undersea data transmission
Transoceanic data is a big business which may be about to be sped up thanks to a team’s research at Alcatel-Lucent’s campus near Paris, who have broke the world record for fastest undersea data transmission.
Researchers at the site from Bell Labs sent data at speeds of 31 Terabits-per-second (Tbps) along 7200km; three times faster than previous commercially-available cables.
This was achieved over a span of 100km (the distance between amplifiers.)
