Gartner rates Telstra tops for IP-VPN

Research company, Gartner, has rated Telstra the number one IP-VPN provider in Asia. The assessment criteria include: reliability, performance, support installation and repairs, range of options and pricing.

In its report, Gartner says: "Telstra has...significantly improved its support capabilities, one of its weak points in the past, because of its geographic distance from the key regional hubs. It has increased local support in key markets, improved its processes, and built new support systems to improve its network and service management capabilities."

Gartner also praised Telstra's joint venture capacity wholesaler, Reach saying: "Reach is strong in high-capacity services, because of its superior regional connectivity, especially for links to China...Reach has good geographic reach. It also has abundant capacity, which translates into better network performance..

Telstra says, globally it increased the number of IP-VPN customers by 53 percent in the past year and that Telstra Global Business overall grew 67 percent last year.

Telstra says it now has over 225 multinational corporation (MNC) customers using its global IP-VPN, including such blue-chip names as Bloomberg, Hewlett-Packard, Sun Microsystems, Morgan Stanley and Woodside Petroleum.

Now’s the Time for 400G Migration

The optical fibre community is anxiously awaiting the benefits that 400G capacity per wavelength will bring to existing and future fibre optic networks.

Nearly every business wants to leverage the latest in digital offerings to remain competitive in their respective markets and to provide support for fast and ever-increasing demands for data capacity. 400G is the answer.

Initial challenges are associated with supporting such project and upgrades to fulfil the promise of higher-capacity transport.

The foundation of optical networking infrastructure includes coherent optical transceivers and digital signal processing (DSP), mux/demux, ROADM, and optical amplifiers, all of which must be able to support 400G capacity.

With today’s proprietary power-hungry and high cost transceivers and DSP, how is migration to 400G networks going to be a viable option?

PacketLight's next-generation standardised solutions may be the answer. Click below to read the full article.
