Birthday party attracts 180,000 attendees on Facebook


Thousands of Facebook users have been left all dressed up and no place to go, after a planned 16th birthday party went viral, with almost 180,000 people 'attending' before the party was cancelled.

The party, for Chatswood girl Jess Cooper, is reminiscent of Corey Worthington's Myspace effort a couple of years ago and was described on the event page as an 'open house' party, a phrase taken a little too literally by punters.

The event attracted guests from not only around Australia but also around the world, and listed the 15 year old's mobile phone number as well as address. It was finally cancelled this morning.

The girl, a Year 10 student, reportedly meant the invitation only for her friends but said in the event that they could invite friends of their own.

If it was to take place, the party surely would eclipse that of notorious party boy Corey Worthington, whose party went viral on Myspace and attracted thousands of teenage revellers.

It remains to be seen whether partygoers will attend Jess's house despite the event's cancellation, and whether or not she will host another party in its place.

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.
