Verizon Successfully Tests 10Gbps Fiber Optic Network


Recommended Posts

Verizon has announced that its engineers have successfully completed lab and field testing of a new fiber optic network capable of reaching speeds up to 10Gbps. The test was completed from the Framingham, MA Verizon office to a FIOS customer three miles away, but future deployments should perform just the same as "fiber optic transmissions are limited only by the equipment on either end of a connection." The new technology is known as next generation passive optical network (NG-PON2) and offers the potential to increase speeds up to 80Gbps "by simply adding new colors of light onto the existing fiber, each color augmenting the capacity by 10Gbps." Verizon hasn't said when the service will be available or how much it will cost, but has said that it will benefit business and residential customers.
