Two Australian tech businesses, Shelde and Revolution IT, have merged to form Ampion to offer locals the capabilities of a global systems integrator that also has the skills of a specialist boutique provider.

The merged entity has shown its prowess right away, winning a contract with Australia Post, beating Capgemini in the process.

A statement from Ampion said Revolution IT was known for its expertise in quality assurance, while Shelde excelled in cyber security and digital engineering.

Ampion chief executive Jamie Duffield, said: “Ampion is engineering focused. Our Australia wide team delivers specialisation at scale with three integrated service streams across software assurance, technology security and digital transformation.

“In today’s fast-paced and rapidly evolving market, organisations need to deliver on their digitisation strategies at an ever-faster pace in order to stay competitive, but speed requires expert insight and extensive practical experience to deliver safe execution.

“The key to remaining competitive, relevant and successful is through reducing complexity and delivering quality customer experiences, in a secure and timely manner. Ampion has the combined skill set and breadth of practical experience to support its clients in meeting these challenges and helping to successfully accelerate their digital aspirations.

“We have the local scale and expertise to deliver large programs of work and are a safe and trusted alternative to the multi-national system integrators. Australia Post recognised this and recently appointed us as its testing services partner, a four-year commitment to continue its impressive digital operation transformation."

Former Shelde chief executive Bruce Williams, the head of the Enterprise Solutions Group at Ampion, said: “The need for innovation is imperative in this new climate. The specialist needs of our clients are continually increasing. We offer them a trusted partner with the insight and practical knowledge needed to deliver organisational transformation with

The company said it would bring to the client’s table collective experience of more than 26 years of working with some of Australia’s leading organisations, and the power of more than 600 consultants across Australia. Ampion retains long-standing clients of both companies.

The launch of Ampion in Australia follows the merger of Shelde and Revolution IT in 2019 and is backed by Pemba Capital Partners, leading investors in the Australian and New Zealand technology sector.

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.
