Australia researchers introduce an internet speed record of 44.2 Tbps

In these crucial times, when high speed internet has become a necessity for all those company employees working from home or the students studying through online courses, Australian researchers have achieved a breakthrough in the bringing forth the fastest internet speed, hitting 44.2 Tbps, or for a more clear reference, 1000 HD movies a second.

It has been reported that a team of researchers from three Melbourne universities claimed that the world’s fastest internet speed would facilitate faster networks with heightened capacity in the near future. These researchers, who are currently employed in RMIT, Swinburne, and Monash universities used a micro-comb to substitute over 80 individual lasers inside a fiber optic cable with one chip.

Apparently, the speed test was conducted with a specific fiber optic network used by research and education institutions, with the transmission being sent from RMIT laboratory in Melbourne’s CBD to Monash University’s Clayton campus via a 76.6 kilometer loop of fiber optic cables.

The record breaking internet speed has been achieved through use of a single optical chip and has been claimed to shatter all the previous records of fastest internet speeds, that was 30.1tbps. Moreover, the chip used for the latest test is said to have utilized over less than half the spectrum. One of the major facts associated with this internet speed is that it is nearly one million times the speed a consumer currently gets on the most proclaimed NBN bundle.

According to reliable reports, the latest development is taking a huge band of internet users off the network and releasing them on a similar network chip which operates relatively faster and effectively. Along with communicating large amounts of data, the chip also utilizes less power and consumes less space than existing methods owing to its integrated nature. This integration of network and systems is estimated to offer huge returns on investment.

This massive development in the field of technology, by Australian researchers would enable the country to lead the world in speed of internet in the upcoming years if it takes massive advantage of the humongous internet penetration worldwide.

However, whether this advancement will really accelerate the region’s technology growth curve, is still a question of concern for the people.
