Scientists achieve new speed record on Internet2

Posted on Tuesday, September 07 2004 @ 00:00:37 CEST by


Scientist at CERN have successfully achieved a new land-speed record on the new internet2. The researchers were able to send 859GB of data in less than 17 minutes at a rate of 6.63 gigabits per second, a speed that equals the transfer of a full-lenght DVD movie in four seconds.
The transfer experiment was done between the Geneva, Switzerland home of CERN and Pasadena, California, where Caltech is based - a distance of approximately 15,766 kilometres. Furthermore, this is the first time the 100 petabit metre per second mark has been broken. One petabit equals 1,000,000,000,000,000 bits.
