Japanese Internet Speed Achieves 32 Billion Kbps

A new optical technology being tested in Japan. Fierce, technology is able to reach speeds of 30 terabit per second (Tbps) or more than 32 billion Kbps. (Strictly speaking 32,212,254,720 Kbps, based on conversion via Google).

The test had been conducted by KDDI R & D Labs with the National Institute of Information and Communications Technology (NICT) in Japan. Tested using the technology called OFDM transmission aka Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplex.

Just to compare, internet connection speed is still far-very far-from that achieved in these trials. Speed of 500 kilobits per second (Kbps), for example, already includes quite normal to use everyday. While the average internet speed in the world, based on final 2008 data, is 1.5 Mbps or 1500 Kbps.

The speed of 30 terabit per second is approximately equivalent to 32 billion kilobits per second. At this rate, the data can be sent per second to reach 3.9 million MB, or nearly 1,000 pieces of DVD movies per second.

The test was conducted at a distance of 240 kilometers, that is not just a short distance test. KDDI plans to commercialize this technology in 2012.

If this can happen, anything you can do via the Internet very quickly. Wow, amazing !!
