Well, depends on lab stuff or stuff you can buy. Nobody yet knows the
theoretical max as you can jack up the power until things start melting and get
more bandwidth. And you can use goofy modes too. I have heard estimates of 10
petabits per second as something achievable.
This real world system did 1.25 terabits per second.

Subject: [AFMUG] Fiber maximum throughout
What is the current max throughout that can be sent over a single or two
strands of fiber? I'm assuming 100g x dwdm ? Atleast 100 x 10gbps?
