The Internet is facing "capacity crisis" and not enough of the fiber 2015.05.06
 According to the British "Daily Mail" reported, British scientists warned that, as the demand of data the Internet will face "grow with each passing day, the capacity of crisis", may have reached a limit in 8 years, the company may increase communication cable to temporarily ease the problem, but it may mean a sharp rise in the cost of the internet.

In May 11th, the Royal Society will convene the relevant senior engineers, physicists and communications company meeting, to discuss the matter, hoping to put forward effective solutions. Professor Andrew Ellissaid the meeting of the joint organizers, the rapid development of Internet TV, streaming media service and more powerful computer, greatly increasing the current communication infrastructure pressure. In 2005, the fastest speed broadband network is 2000000000000 / sec. Now, 100000000000000 / sec speed everywhere.

Fiber soft, transparent, less than the thickness of a human hair so fine. The information is converted intolight, send into the fiber, and then be reduced to information. Experts warn, the laboratory provides data show that, to our laptop computer, intelligent mobile phone and tablet computer to send information and optical fiber cable capacity within 8 years will reach their limit. Internet Co may be able to solve this problem by constantly laying cables, but this may lead to increased cost. Next, we either pay double fee, or endure afrequently dropped network.

Ellis said: "the era of knowledge economy, people's demand on data now, we may not be able to grow with each passing day, keep up with the demand in the footsteps of data. Unless this creative and subversiveideas,, we only watched the sharp increase of the cost."

In addition, Ellis also warned, data transmission will consume a large amount of power, "the Internetconsumption can compete with airlines, accounting for about 2% of the energy consumption in developing countries, this is only the data transmission energy consumption, coupled with the computer, mobile phone,TV and other power, can be accounted for 8% of the total energy consumption. If the fiber quantity is increasing it, then, within 15 years, our energy will be exhausted."

However, not all people think things are so serious. British Telecom Optical research department and a visiting professor at University of Essex Andrew Rod insisted, scientists will propose solutions.

Rhodes will also attend the annual meeting of the Royal Society, he said, the data stored in the "server farms", rather than allow the transmission, may ease the pressure. He said: "the Internet does not collapse,there are a lot of bandwidth available."

A spokesman for the British Royal Society said: "with the demand for online data sharply, communication network is facing a potentially disastrous' capacity crisis'." The experts will discuss a number of issues,including why we will face a "capacity crisis"? What measures can be taken to avoid the crisis? If we may be completely indifferent will have what effect? In addition to the discussion of the data, a limited supply ofnetwork neutrality and Internet problems such as high cost of the end.
