transmit more than 600 DVDs per second

Lucent claims they have "crushed the previous data transmission record" of 14 Terabits per second. "Combined research teams from the United States and France successfully transmitted a world record 25.6 Terabits per second (Tb/s) of optical data over a single fiber strand, using 160 Wavelength-Division Multiplexed (WDM) channels."

For those of you who need a real world DVD equivalent -- that's enough bandwidth to transmit more than 600 DVDs per second.
