Siemens Demonstrates 107 Gbits Network

"The demonstration network, which was run via an unnamed telco in the US, transmitted data over a 100 mile (160 kilometre) fibre-optic network. The high speed was achieved by processing data through "purely electrical" means before and after transmission, Siemens said in a statement. Siemens had purely demonstrated an electrical receiver mechanism, but that system still required a converter for transmission."[...]
