Oh thats great.I always wanted to downlaod Hd movies but with slow net connection,its not been possible.So its great that IBM has managed to increase the net speed to 160 GB/s.Ah I want to have that now and most probably I would have that soon.Great now I can download HD movies in just 1 second hurray!.
Another surreptitious insult to Microsoft, of course.
“The most difficult part of the whole project was installing Windows on Sigbritt’s PC,” said Jonsson.
wow.... i dont even know what to say to that.... that is crazy you could send like the whole contents of a computer in a second lol.
now hackers could be high speed(download the victim's pc in 1 second)
Considering the united states has yet to provide high speed broadband internet to most of its citizens, I don't see this as an economical for some time to come. I suspect that it will initially be used for short distances in office building data networks and such. Personal use of this technology is currently reserved for the likes of Bill Gates and will be for some time to come. Cool to think about though!
How to deal with the last mile? I think that's the question.
For those of you who don't know why I was surprised at the mentioning of "the last mile," here's a quick cap on what this means:
Last-mile technologies are the mediums that separate outside access lines to the cables that go to your DSL/cable/fiber modems and introduce what is called "the last-mile problem." Basically, the technologies that connect the consumer to the network we know as the Internet are incapable of processing/feeding the transfer of data from access lines as quickly as it is actually received, so the performance of the entire system is bottle-necked at that last-mile technology. This is mostly physical limitations of the hardware, but some ISPs actually limit the transmission bandwidth speeds within their modems. (I believe Verizon limits their bandwidth and charges its customers for a simple modification to the modem itself to allow higher speeds for their FiOS service. Some cable ISPs may do the same.) This means that with a bit of know-how, you can access better speeds with physical changes to the hardware (whether it be a switch, a jumper, or even a whole different component to lessen these restrictions).
Anyway, I suppose that this wouldn't be bottle-necked since the modem hardware itself would be a special build allowing for that kind of bandwidth to jump back and forth. In the case of the Swedish woman's ultra-fast connection, they were actual routers designed for that sort of speed (with hardware using a new sort of modulation/demodulation method).
I'm sure that this will only be available to people and/or entities that have the money for a dedicated line. But our speeds are getting up there. With the exclusion of last-mile technologies, Verizon FiOS offers 15MB/s of upload/download transfer rates.
I got to say, I remember the dialup days, then I found cable, and fell madly in love....Now that I have fiber to the curb, 15mbps up and down, well.. I'd probably leave my wife for 160gb/s. LOL
