Broadband Speeds to Be 2000 Times Faster Through Optic Fiber

November 14, 2012, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Wouldn’t you love to play with broadband speeds that are 2,000 times faster than what you have now? If things work out fine, you might get to see that happen very soon.

For, a group of scientists at the Bangor University in Wales have been reported as having developed a technology to achieve this effect.

The innovation is apparently a commercially affordable means of using Optical Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OOFDM) over fiber optic lines that would be capable of delivering super fast broadband ISP speeds. The speeds hinted at are 2,000 times faster than the services offered in the present scene.

This project is not the first to deploy OOFDM. If you are wondering how it would work, let us tell you the service splits a laser down to multiple different optical frequencies, and then the data can be broken up and sent in parallel streams through various frequencies.

By deploying the new technology, scientists believe that network installation and maintenance costs for ISPs and equipment would fall considerably.

This would be made possible with the use of low-cost components and real-time OOFDM transceivers installed on the already deployed fiber networks.

So, if this wireless broadband  project takes off fully, home and business users will be at a greater advantage.

The promised broadband speeds would allow downloading and uploading 2,000 times faster for lesser prices too.
