    Speed A Go-Go! (GOOD LAWRD)

    OC192 - 9.6 gigabits per second (4 OC48s)

    Isn't that kind of connection meant to be split amongst hudreds of computers? So I doubt it would go that fast... not to mention, I don't think any household computer can read 9.6g/second and not melt.

    I could be wrong, but... yeah...

    Bandwidth != latency, you'd still be bogged down by response from the server you're contacting. You'll get better burst speed on good servers for a few hundred thousand dollars a month. Personal T1s are pretty much the bee's knees until the structure of the internet shifts.

    That didn't even go into the internet backbone or explain how it works. They just pretty much said "its better" and not why. Fail.

    OC-192 has been around for awhile now. Usually, these make up the backbone of major networks, which is pretty much their only application. They are meant to be broken down, not used for dedicated bandwidth. Basically, and OC-192 would be the link between 2 major hubs of activity....like New York and LA.

    Even if you had an OC-192 as a dedicated connection, keep in mind that any transfer is as fast as the slowest client involved. For example, if the data you are transferring is coming from a host that is on a T-1, it doesn't matter that you have an OC-192, you will only get a max of 1.54 Mbps, as this is the fastest the T-1 connection can upload the data to you. The only way you would ever reach 9.6 Gbps is if the transfer was over a dedicated physical peice of fiber, of which both the A and Z side are equipped with OC-192 DAC's.

    If its the speed that impresses you...hold onto your socks. 9.6 Gbps is nothing compared to the current record of 101 Gbps.

    All that, plus your network card and processor couldnt handle those speeds, thats your biggest bottleneck right there.

    I remember reading an article where they are testing to have broadband available through the common electric socket you find in your house.


    Tried to find the original press release but all i could find is this.

    Pretty cool if you ask me, but pretty slow

    10 GB cards are not rare (we use them vast majority of time in the printing world), and you'd be surprised at just how much your PC can really handle.

    But yeah, good luck on getting a personal OC-192 :D
