Summary:
Bell Labs researchers have demonstrated transmission of a trillion bits of information per second -- 10 billion over each of 100 wavelengths of light -- over 400 kilometers, or nearly 250 miles. Their experiment uses an experimental Bell Labs ultra-wideband optical-fiber amplifier, which was itself demonstrated less than a year ago.

MURRAY HILL, N.J. – Underscoring Lucent Technologies’ competitive edge in the communications marketplace, scientists from Bell Labs, the research and development arm of Lucent Technologies, have reported the world’s first long-distance transmission of a terabit (trillion bits) of information per second over a single strand of optical fiber.
