GraysOnline to acquire DMS Davlan


The Grays eCommerce group is to acquire B2B platform DMS Davlan, an established auction business in the key agricultural vertical and one of Australia’s premier asset management companies.

The online retail and auction group has announced it has reached an agreement to acquire the business of DMS Davlan, with the deal expected to be completed by the end of June.

Under the deal, Grays will take over DMS Davlan’s national network encompassing key regional and remote area with 15 branches throughout Australia, seven of which are regionally based.

Around 25 DMS Davlan employees will move cross to GraysOnline with completion of the acquisition. The staff are located around Australia with the main concentration being in Wagga Wagga, Brisbane and Sydney, while others are located in Cairns, Townsville, Moree, Adelaide, Mildura, Shepparton and Northam (WA).

Staff moving across to DMS Davan will be led by Richard Skellern, located in Wagga Wagga, and Lance Smith, located in Brisbane, who will both report to Gray’s Adam Scharer, Executive General Manager B2B.

The acquisition follows on from Gray’s recent acquisition of Bryan Andrews Auctioneers in Christchurch, New Zealand, the relocation of the company’s Victorian business into a larger, brand new facility and expansion of its main facilities in New South Wales, Queensland and South Australia.

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.
