We are in the twenty-first century, and anything can happen these days within a blink of an eye. And it is expected that it is going to be even faster, courtesy of the Terahertz network which is reportedly going to make an appearance within a short while. And the Terahertz Network is something that has left the scientists across the continents in a state of craziness as it is believed that if it makes an appearance in the daily chores of a common human being, we are going to get a new definition of faster networks.
The reports have suggested that if put to practical usage the Terahertz network is going to transmit data at a much swifter pace than what we have today. The terahertz band is parked between the Microwave and visible light. And it has the capability of transmitting data at a pace higher than that of 100 Gbps.
Not only that, the Terahertz band has usage even in the field of physiology. It is reported that this band has the capability of screening cancer which sounds really out-of-the-world at this moment of time. But at a distant future, the Terahertz band is something that is going to become the in-thing. It also has the capability of detecting explosives and producing images of much higher resolution. These are the things that come as an addition to the primary usefulness of the Terahertz band which has the capability of transmitting data at a much-enhanced pace as we have mentioned earlier.
Regarding the Terahertz network, Minora Fujishima at the Hiroshima University has been quoted saying that, “We usually talk about wireless data rates in megabits per second or gigabits per second. But we are now approaching terabits per second using a plain simple single communication channel. Terahertz could offer ultra high-speed links to satellites, which can only be wireless.” Minora Fujishima from the Graduate School of Advanced Sciences of Matter has also told that this could work as a catalyst to a better in-flight network connection speed.
So this indicates at a much faster wireless connection in the coming days. For the time being, it can be used only for the purpose of research which is going on surrounding this across the continents. Use of the Terahertz band at this point in time for any sort of commercial purposes is strictly prohibited and is subject to any legal action. For further discussion regarding how this band can be put to use in distant future, is scheduled to take place at the World Radiocommunications Conference in 2019. Until then, we need to keep on waiting eagerly for an update on the upcoming Terahertz network.
