EU wants 10Gbps optical Internet everywhere !?

EU Project Title: Roadmap for Broadband Optical Internet Access Towards 10GBit/s Everywhere

Summary: This project will carry out a focused road-mapping study, with the aim of identifying promising routes forward in achieving the ambitious goals of Photonics21. The study will seek the solutions which show the most promise of cost effectiveness, are future proof (i.e. allowing bandwidth evolution and infrastructure reuse) and allow simple interfaces which can be standardized. The results of the study will be made available to UK industry in order to maximize the opportunities for the UK in the next stage of development,

Partners: Oclaro (lead), Ericsson, CIP, BT, Gooch and Housego, Cambridge University, Swansea University, Essex University, UCL.

BAD HARDWARE verdict: Chances? Well , do not expect it at your home so soon. In 1998 I used 28Kbps connection . In 2008 2 MBps. In 2018 probably 200Mbps. Of course by then 10 Gbps for companies might be a goal. Please note that single one optical core is able to carry up to 1000 10Gbps channels.
