Researchers at Japan’s National Institute of Information and Communication Technology broke the previous record of 1.01 petabits per second with 10 TB. It currently stands at 1.02 petabits, or 127,500 gigabytes per second, which is good for streaming over 10 million simultaneous 8K videos.

This odd speed is even more impressive when you consider that this is possible with four superfine optical fibers. After a few adjustments, the custom cable is compatible with the existing fiber optic infrastructure. To achieve this speed, wavelength division multiplexing was used, where the frequency range of 20 terahertz could be reached. This is divided into 801 channels through which data is transmitted. In addition, amplification and modulation technologies are used to obtain a stable and strong signal.

The transmission system used.

With the frequency of testing by NICT, this record is unlikely to be broken again in the near future.
