Researchers create world’s fastest wireless network that hits 100 gigabits per second

Fraunhofer’s Millilink chip, with III-V transistors capable of switching at 300GHz.

Researchers in Germany have combined photonics and electronics to create a world-record-breaking wireless network that can send and receive data at a heady 100 gigabits per second (Gbps). This beats the same team’s previous world record of 40Gbps. At 100Gbps, or a transfer rate of 12.5 gigabytes per second — ten times faster than Google Fiber — you could copy a complete Blu-ray disc in a couple of seconds.
