Proximus and Huawei break world record for data transmission

Comments

Together with the Chinese company Huawei, Proximus has achieved a world first by transmitting data at a speed of 1 terabit per second. The test was conducted on the backbone of the Proximus network.

In this connected world, operators have to keep investing in their network. After conducting research Proximus, together with Huawei, found a way of transmitting data at a faster speed, more specifically at 1 terabit (= 33 HD films) per second. This was achieved in the backbone – the central network – of Proximus. The world record was an initial test of new technology. A lot more research will need to be done to make this speed available to customers as well.
