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.

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.
