Thats actually pretty dam cool, wonder how the hell he got rid of cross talk, on standered phone cable?
Saying that, its not like we can utilise this straight away, as the exchanges Im sure would need to be upgraded.
A very intresting forumla though.
It's a lot easier to upgrade the exchanges than the cabling infrastructure. Especially as it's still copper technology. It might not take much at all.
oh, i hope this comes out soon. any cable of fiber won't come out as far as i am in the country.
Maybe some form of Fast ICA or PCA.
Good on him, he's just printed his ticket to retirement.
One of my uni tutors will not be impressed, This is exactly what his reasearch group has been working on. Hes quite a proud man.
Clever, so each user will get a unique "signature" spectrum to maximise connectivity. His comment about "cutting off" a user if they are affecting the network, will need to be addressed. Can't have those WOW players cut off part way through a raid
Not sure how the guy did it, but some damn good shielding and things as simple as twisting the cables go a long way to help. Might not be as cost effective as working out the maths but meh! Also, not wanting to sound like the cynic here, but do you ever think we'll see these advances? Also why use this "super copper" when fibre optic has zero cross-talk interference, a faster propegation delay and is a more secure medium for communication?
Because fibre isn't already in the ground across the country, and the hardware to cope with optical fibre is very expensive and complex, thanks to the massively fast switching frequencies and usually multi-band comms...
considering what they charge now for 8Mbps in the Uk I'd hate to think what they would charge for 250
It's all relative. 8MB costs what it does because of where it falls in the pricing bracket, not because it has a number 8 in it.
Well as long as the guy doesn't go mad, and charges a sensible amount of money for everyone to use this technology, I'm sure we'll see it coming in the next few years - even if the ISP's don't give us 250MB BB, they can use it to extend the life of the copper transmission systems until they save for a complete conversion to fibre...
Now do you really think the uk will ever get fiber? certainly not to the curb (or not for a very long time) however if BT get there arse in gear we may get it to the wireing cabinets or the local exchange.
Personaly I think WIMAX may provide a better and cheaper alternative, to the people who dont live city center atleast.
One day the UK will end up on proper fibre, not for a long time, but until then we can have the speedboost from this guy's research.
Fantastic breakthrough! Makes me think of this though:
I simply love things like this, its great. A student, not a multi company.
I’m not so sure, A: it’s already in place B: it was paid for a long time ago. That said; never underestimate or rule out pure greed.
Now we got max bandwidth, how about max storage:
