How Scientist Achieved 44 TB Per Seconds?

Australian researchers have recorded mindblowing and record-breaking internet data speed. Teams from Monash, Swinburne and RMIT universities have successfully tested and recorded a data speed of 44.2 terabits per second (Tbps) from a single light source.

This research is not just under laboratory conditions, but it has the capacity to support the high-speed internet connections of 1.8 million households in Melbourne at the same time, and billions across the world during peak periods.

The team claimed to have managed the record speeds using existing communications infrastructure where they were able to efficiently load-test the network. They used a new device (pictured) that replaces 80 lasers with one single piece of equipment known as a micro-comb, which is smaller and lighter than existing telecommunications hardware.

Australia is currently placed 62nd in the world ranking of global internet speeds despite having the fourteenth largest GDP. With an average download speed of 43.4Mbps Australian connections is almost five times slower than Singapore’s lightning-quick average download speed of 197.26Mbps.

“And it’s not just Netflix we’re talking about here – it’s the broader scale of what we use our communication networks for. This data can be used for self-driving cars and future transportation" said Dr Bill Corcoran from Monash University, co-lead author of the study.

India currently is at 132nd position with 9.81 Mbps of speed for Mobile Data Speed, and for Fixed Broadband Speed India is at 71st position with 35.84 Mbps of speed, according to Speed Test's Global Index
