Holey Optochip capabilities
- The raw speed of one transceiver is equivalent to the bandwidth consumed by 100,000 users at today’s typical 10 Mb/s high-speed internet access.
- Or, it would take just around an hour to transfer the entire U.S. Library of Congress web archive through the transceiver.
- The transceiver consumes less than 5 watts; the power consumed by a 100W light bulb could power 20 transceivers.
