Google gives its Apps an update


Google has announced some significant changes to its Google Apps collaboration tools, including a new plug-in for Microsoft Office.


The new plug-in was announced late last week in a Google blog post, and is available worldwide, allowing users allowing users to add a plugin for Office that will allow integration with Google Docs.

'The plugin syncs your work through Google's cloud, so everyone can contribute to the same version of a file at the same time,' said the company.

'Learning the benefits of web-powered collaboration will help more people make a faster transition to 100% web collaboration tools.'

Google also launched a '90-Day Appsperience' program which is 'a way for companies that currently use cumbersome legacy systems to see how web-powered tools help their teams work together more effectively.'

Essentially, businesses can pay a small fee to gain access to a 90-day free trial of Google Apps.

'Companies trying Google Apps can use the new collaboration dashboard in the Google Apps control panel to assess the value of our tools,' the company said.

'The dashboard provides data on how people are using Apps to collaborate more efficiently without the hassles of document versions, check-in/check-out or attachments."

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.
