lightning quick download, send data or video stream – via optical fibers: Where the city is already connected to the superfast Internet
<. /> div>
Munich – Crawling Ladebalken, hourglasses and jerky video – for the residents of the Olympic Village that has an end. Your district is just to the fiber optic network of Stadtwerke München (SWM) and its telecommunications subsidiary M-net connected.
with bandwidths up to 300 Mbit per second
<"38" div id = "id_b882e7bc_c423_4c59_90d5_af466bfcf8f7" readability => The – By the end of the 3,000 households superfast Internet connections are available in the village. Fibre connections are many times faster than conventional DSL connections. Because the data is transmitted in the fiber optic cable at lightning speed – without any loss of signal, as is the case with copper cables. This opens up new possibilities: video streaming in high-resolution HD image quality, super-fast uploads and downloads or work in fully functional home office. In order to develop the Olympic Village, SWM has relocated a total of approximately 40 kilometers of fiber optic cable in the past six months.
Currently installed M-net necessary for the traffic network components in the remaining buildings. Most of the Olympic village is already on the network.
The demand for bandwidth is growing steadily. On the one hand, because more and more people use the Internet and the applications are becoming increasingly demanding. If you want, for example, to stream a movie in Ultra-HD quality from the Internet, you need at least 25 Mbit / s – and new, even better image formats are already in the starting blocks

On the other hand, companies are starving for ever faster broadband connections. The economy of the future no longer works without an efficient network, as more and more machines are networked and in our globalized world, more and more data needs to be transported in the shortest possible time. Only fiber-optic networks will be able to meet this huge demand for bandwidth. Stadtwerke and M-net have therefore already in 2009 started to roll out this technology in Munich
Cost:. 250 million euros
There are now more than 50 percent of all households developed in the city, the majority of which lies within the Middle Ring. Have invested SWM and M-net for far around 250 million euros. After: An International Industry Telecommunications Association has designated the Munich fiber-optic expansion as a European flagship project – because in a short period of a very large, contiguous area was opened up

A total of approximately 260,000 km fiber optic came under the earth, which is more than six times the earth’s circumference. In a harness are indeed getting more fiber – but also the length of the conduits in the ground is impressive: With 850 kilometers it corresponds to the distance from Munich to Paris
<. h2> DSL, cable, fiber – What is the difference
What exactly distinguishes a fiber optic cable from the conventional DSL connection or cable
DSL This? technology is based on the old phone lines of Telekom. They consist of copper – and that is precisely the problem. Copper attenuates data signals. In other words, the longer the line, the slower the internet. Traditional DSL connections provide a maximum of 18 Mbit / s
Cables:. Use the cable networks previously only the TV signal has been sent. Meanwhile, voice and Internet data can be sent. But here is copper in the game, In addition, all users share the house line. The more neighbors are online, the faster the bandwidth goes to the basement
glass fiber. glass fiber is the Mercedes of the transmission media. In these lines, the data lawn unrestrained speed of light from transmitter to receiver. In terms of bandwidth’s upward hardly any limits – at least in theory. M-net offers via fiber optic connections already with 300 Mbit / s.
