Accessing Internet at 640 Gb/s?

University of Sydney physicists have developed an optical chip that could potentially improve 'Internet speeds to up to 100 times faster than current Australia's networks.' According to the Sydney Morning Herald, these chalcogenide glass photonic chips will be very cheap to produce as they're based on plain glass. As said the lead researcher, 'we are talking about networks that are potentially up to 100 times faster without costing the consumer any more.' He adds that these chips could be scaled to operate at data rates approaching 640 Gb/s -- the equivalent to transmitting approximately 17 complete DVDs per second! These chips could be commercially available in 5 years with the possible first network deployments in Japan. But read more...

The cores (or tiles, which seems to be a new alternative name for the same thing) will talk to each other over a ring network, unlike the 80-core research Polaris chip that's been widely shown off.
