Paired Fibre Beams Boost Range and Speed of Fibre Networks to Colossal 400Gbps | Ultra High Definition Television (UHDTV) |

Some clever research into boosting fibre optic speeds has managed to increase the range and capacity of fibre, thanks to sending two data streams down the pipe instead of one.

In a paper bewilderingly titled Phase-conjugated twin waves for communication beyond the Kerr nonlinearity limit, researchers put forward their concept, which involves sending a pair of signals down a fibre connection, one a mirror of the other.

When combined at the other end this allows the tech to better compensate for signal noise.
