IBM is trying to set a Big Data speed record with a technological advance that increases Internet transfer rates.

The boost comes via a device that can transfer big data between a data center and the cloud four times faster than current technology, IBM claims. The company presented the device -- a new analog-to-digital converter -- at the International Solid-State Circuits Conference in San Francisco in early February.

The device, yet unnamed, is a lab prototype, but a previous version has been licensed to Semtech Corp., a supplier of analog and mixed-signal semiconductors. That company is working on advanced communications platforms expected later this year.
