Alcatel-Lucent Invents 400GB Routing Chip

Alcatel-Lucent has just invented a new FP3 chip in the latest of a packet-processing chip series that can route traffic as fast as 400 gigabits per second! The new technology launched Tuesday, June 28th, 2011 and is expected to take on Cisco Systems and Juniper Networks in the future.

The new tech will handle the IPv6 addresses that are scheduled to roll out next year, very well. If you consider that the 100-Gigabit Ethernet standard was approved just last year, it’s amazing to learn of the speeds that new technology brings.

Comcast CEO Shows Off 1Gbps Internet Speeds

Brian Roberts, the CEO of Comcast, has recently shown off the next-generation cable broadband technology. The new broadband would deliver speeds over 1Gbps to homes. As you can see in the video below, Roberts demonstrates himself downloading 23 episodes of the TV show, 30 Rock in just under two minutes.

Comcast boasted that it is the largest broadband provider in the United States and that the company has big plans for the future. Currently, the technology was only tested on an eleven mile cable network, but it proves the potential of the company as they expand coverage throughout.

Comcast Offer 105Mbps Internet Speeds

In Internet speed terms, 5Mbps is a good connection, one should be able to play first person shooter videogames on it without any problems, movies and music download at a reasonable rate. A 10Mbps connection is really fast and will allow you to download gigabytes of data, say if you’re downloading a full featured game, over night. Being able to download 15GB of data in one night still impresses me. Comcast has announced today that they are delivering 105Mbps connections to over 40 million homes around the United States.

IEEE Approves WiMax-2 Blazing Speeds

According to PCWorld, The Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers has approved IEEE 802.16m, the next generation of WiMax. Expected speeds of this new technology are greater than 300M bits per second. If you’re unfamiliar with WiMax technology, the term stands for Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access and is a telecommunications protocol that provides both fixed and mobile Internet access.

The current revision provides up to 40M bits per second. The IEEE 802.16m is also termed WirelessMAN-Advanced or WiMax-2. It has been reported that the new standard was…
