Over 40 Terabits/s across more than 1800 kilometers : Verizon, NEC claim fiber speed records

Verizon and NEC said they have successfully sent the highest-capacity transmissions for regional and long-haul distances over field fiber.

 The two companies said tests showed that by expanding from one band to two bands, the C-band and the L-band, the two firms were able to transmit 40.5 terabits per second for a long-haul distance of more than 1,800 kilometers (1,118 miles) and 54.2 Tb/s over a regional distance of more than 630 kilometers (391 miles), using Verizon’s fiber loop outside Dallas. The achievement was accomplished by tightly packing optical channels in the two bands of the optical fiber spectrum, the two firms added.

Cloud open doors for telecoms

"In addition to connections, for carriers, jumping into cloud computing offerings can be a way to make additional revenue with services. “Many have stepped up to provide end-to-end cloud solutions,” DeCarlo pointed out. “Telecom companies have more than just the network; most also have significant data center infrastructures and deep expertise in virtualization. They can leverage this to create complete end-to-end cloud solutions, particularly in areas like IaaS.”

 

Indeed, there are opportunities available for carriers that decide to include cloud in their portfolio. DeCarlo highlighted that cloud services could give carriers more than just a source of replacement revenue for services whose margins are declining rapidly. “On-demand service can introduce a whole new set of prospects to the carrier’s services and open up new market growth sectors to the provider,” she said."

and this time, we're not talking backdoors (see Barracuda's SSHGate)
