ABC widens reach of its international TV service

By
Australia Network, the ABC's international television channel, will be able to reach viewers beyond its existing Asia-Pacific footprint to in the cable neighbourhoods of the South Asian region and new markets such as the Middle East and India under a new satellite access agreement with Intelsat.

Australia Network has added access to the PAS-10 satellite to its agreement with Intelsat. Intelsat will also provide Australia Network with turnaround services from its leased teleport facilities in Singapore. According to Intelsat, "Prior to this contract, Australia Network only had available a single time feed. Intelsat's enhanced fleet and teleport facilities now enable the broadcaster to transmit its programming in three prime time feeds covering the Pacific island nations, Asian land mass and South Asia region."

}"As Australia Network was seeking wider distribution in the region, we needed a service provider that would enable us to accomplish multiple business goals with one turnkey offering, and Intelsat provided that solution," said Ian Carroll, CEO of Australia Network.

Australia Network claims that its services are presently available in 15 million homes in 42 countries across the region and in more than 200,000 hotel rooms. Screening programs specifically produced for regional audiences, it "draws on the vast inventory of programming available from both the ABC and Australian commercial television networks and independent production houses from around the world."

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.
