On Tuesday, Yevgeni Dianov, head of a fibre-optics institute at the Russian Academy of Sciences (RAN), said that fibre-optic networks would be able to send data at speeds of up to one petabit (1 quadrillion bits) per second within a decade, which would be at least 100 times faster than current networks using quartz-glass cables. He told the RAN presidium that multicore cables are faster; Dianov noted that researchers already reached one petabit per second using a 12-core cable in an experiment last year.
