Researchers have set a new 2-way network data transfer rate record of 186 Gbps in order to help work through tons of information spewing out of the Large Hadron Collider.
The researchers at Caltech, University of Michigan, and others have recently cooperated to push the limits of the amount of data that could be transferred in a wide area network. Today the computer experts acknowledge that very large quantities of data are able to be crammed down optical fibres and sent throughout the globe from continent to continent. The speeds in question are apparently equivalent to moving 2,000,000 Gb per day.
Now they expect that new networks could be constructed in order to use the technology in the next few years, most likely within the range of 40 to 100 Gbps. The 2-way connection, both ways reaching 88 Gbps to make up for a combined 186 Gpbs, sent information from ten Dell servers from British Columbia and Seattle through an optical network. This broke the earlier record, set by the same team, which was 119 Gbps two years ago. Moreover, the researchers decided to show the globe spanning potential of the high speed information network, and that’s why data was also sent to some institutes located in Brazil and Korea.
This network will be very helpful in work through the staggering amount of information derived from the Large Hadron Collider at the CERN facility, where the scientists are now trying to work through information that has indicated the presence of the Higgs boson.
Thus far, over 100 petabytes of data has been processed. This is really an outstanding amount of information, which could be compared to a Blockbusters-beating 100,000,000 Blu-ray disks. Meanwhile, the researchers believe that it’s only the start, because experts of the Large Hadron Collider will smash even more particles together.
At the moment, it is expected that the experts in laboratories all over the globe will be able to get their hands on information in order to solve mysteries of the universe rather than having to watch a download bar run as swiftly as an MP3 on a slow dial-up connection. Everything becomes easy our days, and petascale particle physics information can now be transferred to any corner of the world in merely a couple of hours.

|I think its great when I get 1.5Mb/s|
|oh man if i get only 1% of this speed it's more than enough 4 me...thnx sam|

|is there even a word for 2,000,000 Gb's LoL|
Byte, Kilobyte, Megabyte, Terrabyte, Petabyte, hexabyte, Septabyte, octabyte, EtCs...

|thanks sam for the article.read it on gizmodo.|
wish i had such a connection.would b seeding all ET torrents simultaneously...LOL.
|must be for the back bone of the internet|
|May be this is the future of internet !!.|
Thanks for the info.
|I want this connection so badly.... :'(|

|darn mine only gets 88gbps ..hahah|

|may b i have to sue them to get that connection for myself as its highly unfair, double standards :p|
|The essence of FUTILITY is the DANGEROUS practice of KNOWLEDGE without 'TRUTH'...do the math...tic..tic...tic...@@@@@@@@@@BOOM@@@@@@@@@....gameover!|
