NII Succeeds in Achieving One of World’s FastestLong Distance Transmission Speeds

The National Institute of Informatics (Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo; Director General: Masaru Kitsuregawa; “NII,” hereafter) recently conducted demonstration testing of the new protocol called MMCFTP (Massively Multi-Connection File Transfer Protocol) designed to enable long-distance high-speed file transmission over the JGN-X R&D testbed network operated by the National Institute of Information and Communications Technology (Koganei-shi, Tokyo; President: Masao Sakauchi; “NICT,” hereafter). During the testing, researchers with MMCFTP successfully achieved the stable transmission of 1PB (Petabyte; 1PB comprises 1,000TB) of data at approximately 84 Gbps, one of the world’s fastest transmission speeds.
