Researchers have set a world record for Internet speed of 1.8 Pbit/s
An international team of researchers from the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) and Chalmers University of Technology (Gothenburg, Sweden) has developed a surprising Internet speed, setting a record as the world’s first Internet speed of over 1 Petabit Per Second (Pbit/s).
The experts used only 1 laser and 1 optical chip to achieve this speed. This data transmission method saves energy consumption.
In the test, the team achieved an internet speed of 1.84 Pbit/s, which is almost twice the world’s internet speed. 1 Petabit is equal to 1 million Gigabits.
It is more than 20 times faster than the Internet speed of the US government’s ESnet6, which was created for scientific research.
The data transmission speed is now faster than the record internet speed of 1.02 Pbit/s set in May this year.
This new technology will be more useful in designing future communication systems and will enable us to create high-capacity transmitters and receivers.
