Ring Video Doorbell recalled


The ACCC has issued a recall notice for the second-generation Ring Video Doorbell.

The problem with the Ring Video Doorbell (2nd Generation) is that if the wrong screws are used to attach the doorbell to its mounting bracket, there is a risk of the screws damaging the battery.

If that happens, the result could be fire or serious injury, according to the ACCC.

The doorbell was sold between 3 June and 7 September 2020.

Owners who have yet to install the device should download the new user guide before proceeding.

The instructions in the Ring app have also been updated.

Owners who have incorrectly installed the doorbell by using screws other than the supplied security screws to attach it to the mounting bracket should call Ring on 1300 205 983 or 02 8294 9169.

All known customers have already been contacted by Ring.

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.
