MODE-GAP, the European collaborative R&D project funded under the European Commission’s 7th Framework Programme, which aims to provide Europe with a lead in the development of the next generation internet infrastructure, is to present its latest results with thirteen papers at this month’s OFC conference and exhibition (17-21 March). The project, which is investigating a possible solution to the capacity crunch by using multimode fibres to increase the transmission capacity, consists of key European organisations drawn from industry and academia.

Capacity double that required for world’s population to be on simultaneous phone calls
Nokia Siemens Networks, and a consortium of R&D partners, have successfully demonstrated a capacity record using light to transmit information down commercially deployed multi-mode optical fiber. The demonstration* achieved a 6-fold increase in optical data speed to 57.6 terabit per second (Tbps), compared to 9.6 Tbps speed available with today’s commercial systems. The technique employed spatial multiplexing over solid-core multi-mode fiber. This capacity breakthrough has been recognized at the European Conference on Optical Communications (ECOC).
