Scientists push a record 57Gbps through fiber optic lines

University of Illinois researchers report that they’ve set a record for fiber data transmission, delivering 57Gbps of error-free data. And importantly, they sent the data at room temperature — they didn’t have to cool things down to keep those bits going. Even when things got toasty (185F), the technology could still deliver a brisk 50Gbps. – Jon Fingas, Engadget
