Title: RE: A89: Me distributing roms.

My understanding is that an OC192 is equivalent to 192 T3 lines.  One T3 line is about 45 mbit/sec, therefore you come up with a grand total of 8640 mbit/s.  Just a quick divide by 1000 yields 8.64 gbit/sec, roughly.  I know the number isn't exact, but should be oftly close.

I believe his math is wrong. The OC256 that at&t is laying across the
atlantic to connect the 2 continents is a 2 gbit line which would roughly be
~200meg/s
the quick conversion for (g)(m)(k)bits/s is to just add 2 zero's and reduce
to a lower letter if nessessary.
for example. a 56kbit modem like an x2 is really 5.6 kilobytes max
downstream
and a 384k/s downstream dsl would be ~38.4 kilobytes /s
a 1mbit cable line would be 100kilobytes per second. etc.
I may not know how to do anything but hello world in asm but networking I do
know =]

How did you calculate that?
