Researchers Aim to Deliver 100 GBit Optical Internet to EU Households

According to an article published on Science World Report, a European team of researchers is exploring new ways of using fibre-optic technology to deliver ultra-high-speed internet access to even the remotest locations in Europe, at less cost and with less impact on the environment. It is ambitious, but innovative solutions are needed to strengthen Europe's digital economy and provide jobs.

After a period of analysis, the researchers announced that their proposal is to (re)design and later demonstrate a “complete end-to-end architecture and technologies for an economically viable, energy efficient and environmentally sustainable future-proof optical network”.

“Simply put, the plan is to save Europe billions in broadband infrastructure costs, and provide cheaper, faster and greener access to job-creating internet services in areas where they are most needed,” explains project leader Marco Ruffini of Trinity College Dublin’s Telecommunications Research Centre (CTVR).
