Telecoms architecture to boost data speed and cut technology costs

Telecoms architecture to boost data speed and cut technology costs
An EU-funded project, FABULOUS (FDMA Access By Using Low-cost Optical Network Units in Silicon Photonics), has created innovative new components to be used in digital telecommunications including digital radio, television and internet that are lower-cost and more efficient than currently existing technology. The project has demonstrated that its technology will allow higher bit rates – the speed at which basic units of information are processed - in computing and digital communications.
