Internet2 set to get even faster

0 comments

Internet2, which runs parallel to the regular Internet, will deliver a massive 10Gbps when a new particle collider in Geneva comes online, probably next year. 

The network's current 10Gbps is already many times faster than current Internet connections.
The new particle collider will be able to send data simultaneously on 10 different wavelengths to achieve the expected 100Gbps throughput.
The company that runs Internet2, Level 3 Communications, plans to further quadruple the bandwidth to 400Gbps within the next year and a half.
