A successful trial of 100 Gigabits per second prototype transmission equipment has just been completed on the Southern Cross twin cable network. This was demonstrated during extensive testing of the latest 40 Gbps equipment from a number of suppliers in readiness for the next Southern Cross capacity expansion targeted for 2012. Southern Cross currently uses 10 Gbps transmission equipment.“Southern Cross continues to invest and build ahead of demand, to support new innovation and broadband growth,” says Ross Pfeffer the Southern Cross Sales and Marketing Director.
Amazing things are happening to expand bandwidth. We have also seen new ultra-thin graphene material made by IBM which will transform how we transfer data. We are talking about more innovation in wireless transmission technologies.
