0.1 terabit/s Ethernet...

While I was happily peering into holes at CERN and admiring the new data centre that'll be distributing a gigabyte per second of data worldwide, others were showing that technology's more than ready to keep up. On Monday, 100 gigabits a second of continuous data was sent over 4000km of fibre cable from Tampa, Florida to Houston, Texas, and back again.
