Both IBM and Chalmers are pioneers in their respective fields. I would guess that the cable will be a Fibre cable and but i am not sure about the laser wavelength.

First of all how did they verify the data rates? What equipment did they use? What BER did they get?

At 26 GHz you need at least a 78 GHz oscilloscope to see the third harmonic. I'd sure like to see an eye diagram.
