What?? We can transfer data at the speed of 1 Terabytes per second. Let’s talk about the latest and upcoming technology in the field of big data and data transfer. Let us talk about ongoing research which is currently going in this field. Many technicians and researchers are trying to transfer the digital data transfer at extraordinary speed.
With the advancement in technology, the data transfer in speed is successfully reached to 1 Gigabytes per second and even more and in the way research is going, there are even possibilities that data transfer at gigabits per second.
You must have already heard of Li-Fi technology by which it is possible to achieve low cost, high-speed internet at the speed of 10 gigabits per second using LED lights.
What is Li-Fi Technology?
A white light is made up of red, green and blue colors which you must have learned in the primary school. The researchers have done a great advancement in this upcoming technology as they were able to transmit 3.5 Gbit/sec of data transfer through each of the light using a micro LED bulb.
You can also watch this short and amazing video which will be explaining a brief about this technology and its advantages.
Now coming on optical fiber data transfer speed, the maximum speed of transferring data is reached up to 73 Tbit/s. Well some of you must be thinking it is a myth and this speed of transferring data is not possible.
But researchers are trying to transfer data with about 99.7% of speed of light i.e up to 73 terabytes per second using high quality data transfer. Well now in the world of 4G and 5G, it seems possible to transfer data at such a high speed.
Intel’s Silicon Photonic Linc is a prototype built by Intel which is successfully been tested to transfer data at 50 Gbit/s and now they are currently pushing the limits of data transfer.
There are many advancement in the upcoming technologies and computers. We just have to wait for the right time and all new advancements will be right in front of you.
