Xinhua: China Reached 100 GBPS Inter-Satellite Communication Speed

Xinhua News Agency reported that Changguang Satellite Technology Co., Ltd. has successively completed high-speed inter-satellite laser communication tests at rates of 10 gigabits per second (GBPS) and 100 GBPS. During stable link establishment, the communication bit error rate was 0. The satellite also successfully transmitted high-resolution remote sensing images between satellites, marking China’s first achievement of inter-satellite laser communication at a super-high speed of 100 GBPS for high-resolution remote sensing image transmission. According to Xinhua, the satellite company has also developed technology for high-speed communication between satellites and ground stations on earth.
