A Russian scientist said Tuesday that fiber optic networks would be able to send data at speeds of up to one petabit (1,000,000,000,000,000 bits) per second within a decade.

MOSCOW, November 26 (RIA Novosti) – A Russian scientist said Tuesday that fiber optic networks would be able to send data at speeds of up to one petabit (1,000,000,000,000,000 bits) per second within a decade.

That would be at least 100 times faster than current networks using quartz-glass cables, said Yevgeny Dianov, who heads a fiber optics institute at the Russian Academy of Sciences.

Multicore cables are faster, he told the academy’s presidium, noting that one petabit per second had already been reached via a 12-core cable in an experiment last year.
