IBM Promises 400 Times Faster Internet


Recommended Posts




A new technology from IBM promises hyper-fast and energy efficient connections to the Internet,as fast as 400 gigabits per second.


Scientists in IBM Switzerland just unveiled a prototype tiny chip for an energy efficient analog-to-digital converter (ADC), that’s 5,000 times faster than the average U.S. connection, or 400 times faster than Google Fiber.


This is fast enough to download a 2-hour ultra-high-definition movie (about 160 gigabytes) in seconds!


The latest version of the chip, developed by IBM with researchers from Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne in Switzerland, is only a prototype right now and was presented at the International Solid-State Circuits Conference (ISSCC) in San Francisco.
