Third Apple Store for Melbourne


Apple's recruitment site is accepting applications for vacancies at an as yet unannounced Apple Store in Melbourne, Australia.

One of the first signs of a new Apple Store in Australia is the opening of applications for various positions on Apple's jobs site. (Just so there's no confusion, that's jobs with a lower case j.)

If you look for retail jobs in Victoria, you'll see applications are open to work at a new store in Melbourne. Interestingly, the location is described as "Melbourne" without a suburb, but the postcode is shown as 3205, which is South Melbourne.

This would seem to rule out some speculation that the store will be located on Southbank - located just across the river from the CBD - as that area has its own postcode of 3006.

Possible locations include the Clarendon Street shopping strip. Apple reseller Computers Now already has a store on Clarendon Street. It used to have a store in the Chadstone shopping centre, but that closed following the opening of the Apple Store Chadstone.

Apple 'Pro reseller' Digistore also has premises in South Melbourne, just over a block from Clarendon Street, but that company's focus on digital media production means it is unlikely to suffer from the arrival of an Apple Store in the neighbourhood - unlike Computers Now, which is likely smarting at the news.

Just because applications are being solicited for employment at the new store, that doesn't mean the opening is imminent. The delay between the two events has been known to be as much as a year.

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.
