Mark Jackson, ISPreview, UPD Scientists Hit 100Gbps Wireless World Record to Aid Rural Broadband, here. Ptown is rural , no? Alfred, prepare the DynaPie Ice Cream Truck. I am ready to trade.
A joint team of German researchers based out of the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Solid State Physics (IAF) and the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) have achieved a world record after they successfully completed a 100Gbps (Gigabits per second) data transmission over a wireless radio network at 237.5GHz. The next target is 1Tbps!
The experiment itself, which is an extension of the €2 million Millilink Project that combined the latest photonic (fibre optic) and electronic technologies, was only achieved over a distance of just 20 metres in the lab. But the teams prior outdoor test using a similar setup was able to hit 40Gbps over a more commercially attractive distance of 1km+ (i.e. between two skyscrapers).
