Spatial multiplexing achieves a data rate of 5.1Tbits/s on a single wavelength on one fiber.
By employing compact waveguide multiplexers and energy-efficient digital signal processing algorithms, the researchers demonstrated the viability of spatial multiplexing to reach a data rate of 5.1 terabytes/s on a single wavelength over a single fiber. Amezcua Correa said that by combining this approach with a system of using 50 wavelength carriers on a dense grid, a gross transmission of 255 terabytes over the fiber link is achieved.
