Two-hundred and fifty-five terabits per second equals about 32 terabytes per second. At that speed, you’re moving more data than can be found online currently. What’s the secret? Multi-Core optical fibre. Multi-Core may one day replace single-mode fiber optics. Replacing millions of miles of fiber sounds about as bad as replacing millions of miles of fiber. The old saying, “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” comes to mind. When 32k resolution movies hit the world we might be seeing multi-core roll out, until then single-mode has got your back.
Whether you’re uploading your TB hard-drive at 31 milliseconds or downloading a movie at .003 milliseconds, the future for data looks very fast.
