How New Fiber Networks Could Operate at Optimal Speeds

Researchers at the University of Southampton in England have produced optical fibers that can transfer data at 99.7% of the universe’s speed limit: The speed of light.

The researchers have used these new optical fibers to transfer data at 73.7 terabits per second — roughly 10 terabytes per second.

That’s at speeds 1,000 times faster than today’s state-of-the-art 40-gigabit fiber optic links, and at much lower latency.

Positive Impact of HEVC Video Codec on Global Networks

New video codec to ease pressure on global networks

A new video coding standard, HEVC, was agreed to by ITU members. The new codec will considerably ease the burden on global networks.

The new standard, known informally as “High Efficiency Video Coding” (HEVC) will need only half the bit rate of its predecessor, ITU-T H.264 / MPEG-4 Part 10 “Advanced Video Coding” (AVC) — which currently accounts for over 80 percent of all web video.

HEVC will unleash a new phase of innovation in video production spanning the whole ICT spectrum, from mobile devices through to Ultra-High Definition TV.
