Europe and Japan are working on 100Gbit/s-internet

The European Union and Japan stabbing together money for research into optical connections at a rate of 100Gbit / s. The EU puts € 1.5 million in research. How many Japan pulled out is unknown. The survey runs until 2016.

The Strauss -project, the high-speed optical links should make it possible, and announced Thursday by both the European Union and Japan supported. In addition, research conducted in collaboration with universities and companies from both Japan and Europe, such as the University of Bristol, the Fraunhofer Institute, the University of Osaka and Fujitsu.

The aim of the project is not to operate the connections are via a speed of 100Gbit / s they also inexpensive and energy-efficient. In addition, the Ethernet protocol can be used for data transfers. For the physical link layer optical cables should be used, which in practice means that it will happen. Via fiber

For the project to be developed, such as switching nodes and the necessary software, but the project will also deal with more abstract issues, such as the design of the architecture. Include concrete products

According to the European Commission will research the Internet connections that are 5000 times as fast as the average internet speed in the European Union. Which is at present 19.7 Mbit / s. The study will take up to 2016, after which it probably take years before the new infrastructure can be used.

The fast network infrastructure is not the only joint research project of Japan and the European Union. Another research project, led by the Fraunhofer Institute, should lead to better use of frequencies, so that mobile data connections are faster. In another research aims to smart meters to connect with each other. A total of 18 million euros in projects inserted.
