The virtual world is more involved in the evolution and progress processes compared to the real one. This being said, a group of experts has been working on a major breakthrough, designed to upgrade the internet with a better, stronger, faster and steadier connection, bringing it directly on our devices. The new discovery will not only make our connections to the internet work faster, but will also make it come at a more affordable price.
Researchers have managed to increase the maximum power and distance at which optical signals can be sent through optical fibers. Thus, data transmission rates are increased for the fiber optic cables that serve as the core of the internet via cable, landline and wireless networks.
The new report detailing the innovative inner workings of our virtual world was released last Thursday and can be entirely read and analyzed in the Science magazine. With the new improvements, networks will be able to carry even greater amounts of data at much lower costs.
The internet became an immense pile of information that demands ongoing improvement to keep the pace with the speed at which data appears and travels. However, the optical fiber transmission is limited too, like everything else in our world. Provided one boosts the power to its maximum potential, the beams of laser light responsible with carrying data will start interfering with one another until the signal completely degrades and information gets lost in a void.
Optical fibers work with information transmitted via carriers that operate across a range of wide and diverse frequencies. The more laser light is beamed through our cables at a faster pace, the higher goes the amount of interference between carriers. Worst case scenario, we reach the fatal point where all signal becomes so distorted that decoding fails.
Even if fiber optic signals are limited in terms of the amount of power that can be used to deliver them, engineers try to show the world that most limits actually start and end in our minds alone. Impossible is nothing and internet is everything nowadays, so the limits can be turned into nothing in a moment of genius spark. We’re expecting the ultra-fast internet to come soon and make our lives unfold at a better, faster, stronger pace.
