Hi Chanj, I agree with you. The cost of replacing or upgrading the existing system in many countries could be one of the biggest hurdle to overcome. Instead of upgrading the existing, it would be better to lay a new network, correct? This might take some more time in some countries. By the way, can we achive more than 10Mb/s on CAT3?

There will be more bandwidth hunger applications in the foreseeable future. Any improvement in any area will indeed a great help. One of the biggest challenge today is still the last mile. To replace all last miles copper may not be so cost effective. Any new technology to address high speed delivering through regular CAT3 cable w/o substantial degradation?

It is great to see such break through. Just don't know how much it costs. Will this solution be cheap enough?

Hi Kris, I don't remember or might have missed such news about any previous successful attempt of 100Gb/s transmission over 800 miles. Could you please direct me to any link you might remember?

InP based photonic circuits sounds cool. But 100Gb/s transmission over 800 miles had been shown in the past using soliton technology. Am I missing something here? Kris
