University Corporation for Advanced Internet Development) is a non-profit consortium which develops and deploys advanced network applications and technologies, for education and high-speed data transfer purposes. International Team Lead by the University of Tokyo sets two new consecutive IPv6 records and speed transfer record. The entire network route used in this experiment is IPv6, Jumbo-frame capable.
Operators of the high-speed Internet2 network announced Tuesday that the researchers on Dec. 30 sent data at 7.67 gigabits per second, using standard communications protocols. The next day, using modified protocols, the team broke the record again by sending data over the same 20,000-mile path at 9.08 Gbps.
Dr. Kei Hiraki, professor at the University of Tokyo and LSR team leader said:
These records are final for the 10Gbps network era because they represent more than 98% of the upper limit of network capacity. Through collaboration by a number of institutions, we have demonstrated the ability to overcome the distance and achieve this newest mark.
