Um: http://pr.fujitsu.com/en/news/2000/09/25.html

Multiple Tb/s on a single fiber...

Of course, I don't have any idea what they are going to do with the data
when they get it there either ;-) (i.e. issues with memory, buses,
processor speeds, etc.) Or, for that matter, how they are going to get
that data out of any silicon chip...   But, I assume these are planned
for after we are doing all optical computing, right?  ;-)
