A new ad-hoc fibre link lit up yesterday in Auckland to speed research data traffic between Australia and New Zealand.
ASE IT founder aims to build a new market – and free cloud adopters from bandwidth constraints – by facilitating the buying and selling of excess data centre communications capacity.
US researchers have developed a new method of transmitting data across fibre that is claimed could significantly boost bandwidth.
In the face of criticism that it is falling behind on its rollout, NBN Co has stuck with its forecasts for this financial year, while also showing that even more users are choosing to use the fibre network where it is available.
Researchers at the University of Southampton have developed a hollow-core fibre optic cable they say has reduced the latency of data transmission.
Ensuring that the cost of capacity over fibre doesn't go up in the long run will require changes to the way data is sent over the fibre, according to Bell Labs.
The mobile operator has agreed to acquire Cable & Wireless Worldwide for £1.04bn, so that it can offer enterprises converged communications and lower its mobile data costs
Researchers at the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics (MPQ) are claiming a world first with a demonstration of a quantum switching network. The Institute reports data being exchanged successfully "with high efficiency and fidelity" between two quantum nodes installed in two separate labs, connected by a 60-metre long optical fibre.
Deutsche Telekom's T-Labs says the enhanced data technology should allow for single fibre strands with a 24.6Tbps throughput
The National Broadband Network Company (NBN Co) has heralded the results of a German experiment that achieved a record data transfer rate of 26 terabits per second (Tbps) over a single fibre optic cable, stating that this demonstrates the longevity of the technology.
A group of researchers has broken transmission records by sending 26Tbps of data over 50km in a second, carried on a single laser beam via fibre cable
A University of Southampton-led project has won £7.2m in funding to find ways of boosting the amount of data carried by a single fibre and raise broadband speeds a hundredfold
The changing face of mobile networks and the slow rise of superfast broadband Britain...
iiNet today revealed it would provide Tasmanian NBN customers with full 100Mbps speeds on all plans and the option of a terabyte data quota to truly get the benefit out of the fledgling fibre service.
Back in 2005 we all knew that Fibre Channel and Ethernet would eventually support transmission rates of 10 Gbit/s and above and now in 2010 that day has pretty much dawned on us. In the excitement of those days what was always a concern was that the host’s I/O bus would need to transmit data at the same rate.
At more than 40 years old, Dataram certainly isn't a technology start-up, but the memory company has come up with a new approach to storage optimization that could help midsize companies squeeze out more performance from their existing devices.The technology, called XcelaSAN, is an appliance that works within Fibre Channel SANs to better allocate the most active data to high-performance solid state storage.
Hitachi Data Systems launches two new NAS devices built on BlueArc hardware, offering a maximum capacity of up to two petabytes
A recent report commissioned to take a peek into the benefits of smart technologies has shied away from putting a number on the economic benefits of the government's $43 billion fibre-to-the-home project due to "insufficient data".
How do you manage something that's constantly growing fast, with no end in sight? That's the question many Australian IT managers are currently asking themselves, as they size up their storage and data management strategy going into 2009. Unfortunately, there's no easy answer.
