  • Fastest residential uplink in the world!

    This is crazy 40 gigabytes per second uplink ,now that is something we need for the new PoE2 release.

      Dude, you'd have a 1 ping EVERYWHERE.

        Uh, no.

        You'd have a fast ping to the other end of the first hop, and then you'd be at the mercy of the backbone and the connection at the remote end.

        Think of it as having a 16-lane driveway. :D

          Yes, but the point is that they successfully proved it in application, which means that it is very possible to do. Sooner or later more people are going to rig this kind of thing up and then the market will be forced to compete. So even if you're at the mercy of the backbone and remote end as you say, you're still functioning at a much higher capacity than before.

          So sure, at first you might not have a 1 ping everywhere, but give it some time for the demand to reach peak levels and watch the speeds go up. Look at the fiber-optic revolution and the bandwidth speed increases its brought. All it takes is clever marketing. Get a couple major companies like SUN and Microsoft on a 40G/s uplink and the fallout will make cable companies cry.

            I love how it took an individual to create this and not some giant software corporation. For his sake, I sure as heck hope he legally protected his technology. Truly amazing stuff.

              Also keep in mind that latency and bandwidth are two separate things. Latency (ping) is how long it takes the data to travel from one place to another. Bandwidth is how much data you can move from one place to another. Sure, they're closely related with our existing technology, but they're really two different things...

              For instance, I might have a 1ms ping to the guy that lives next door to me, but if he's got a dialup connection, I'll be able to download "Debbie Does Dallas" much faster from the server in Sweden that is sitting on an OC3 connection to which I ping 200ms.

                The key to this is that the routers are 1240 miles apart. My DSL provider says I have to be within something like 3000 FEET to get a decent signal.

                This is absolutly huge news for those living in the boonies.

                  Can someone here at TG figure this out. We need to have the fastest gaming community in the world.

                    the most difficult part of the process was installing the Windows operating system on Ms Lothberg's PC.

                      For the love of all that is good...it's not 40 gigabytes. It's 40 gigabits. 8 bits = 1 byte. So you actually only have 5 gigabyte theoretical transfer limit (not that she'd ever reach that limit).

                      As for fiber-optic connections, in some places you can get faster if you're willing to fork out the premium to get it.

                      Most cities have a fiber-optic backbone, so theoretically, you could just tap into that and BAM, you have a lightning fast connection and possibly 1 ms ping!

                        Ping is a measure of round-trip time. To get 1 millisecond ping, you have to be within 0.5 millisecond of the remote node in speed-of-light terms.

                        Here's an article that puts some real numbers and distances to it:

                        http://royal.pingdom.com/?p=143

                        To get 1 ms ping, the distance has to be less than about 75 km. And that's assuming pure bounce of photons in a vacuum, with no router delay or reduction in speed of light from copper, air, or other media in the path.

                        As Cing points out, fiber gets you lots of bandwidth, but it does nothing for your ping.
