Japan's National Institute of Information and Communications Technology has unveiled the world's first prototype optical switch with a processing speed of 1 petabits per second.
It is reported by Science Daily.
The prototype uses modern large-scale low-loss optical switches based on MEMS (microelectromechanical systems) technology, three types of the latest multiplex fibers and routes signals from 10 Tbps to 1 Pbps. This is more than 100 times the capacity of modern networks.
The results of the demonstration were recognized by the scientific community at the 45th European Conference on Optical Communication ECOC 2019.
The National Institute is actively collaborating with scientists and industry in the development of new types of optical fiber and high-speed communication for short and long distances, as well as for data center networks. However, for transmitting data at a petabit rate, appropriate switches are required that could accurately control the data flows in networks. Until now, such technologies did not exist.
Petabit - a unit of measurement of the amount of information equal to 1015 (quadrillion) bytes.
It was previously reported that the Japanese company Konica Minolta at the European Leadership Campus-2019 introduced a special mat Projection with Interactive Capture (PIC) with a translation function.
