Almost every Aussie cellphone a smartphone by 2015


Smartphone penetration in Australia is forecast to rise from 50 percent of users today to 90 percent by 2015, some 18.5m devices in total.

According to market research firm Telsyte, by 2015 nearly 90 percent of mobile phone users in Australia will have a smartphone as their primary mobile device.

Telsyte expects the iPhone to dominate until around 2014, with Android taking increasing market share. However it counters this by saying: "Telsyte research shows that platform lock-in is becoming more prevalent as users often intend to purchase the same platform, or brand of device in future purchase cycles.
According to Telsyte research director, Foad Fadaghi, "The movement from a device mentality to a platform and application mentality in consumers is a game changer for the industry that was once just focused on moving boxes."

While Android and Apple vie for market dominance, Blackberry is expected to maintain a niche following among consumers. Telsyte, oxymoronically, "predicts Nokia to be a dark horse with its adoption of Windows Phone 7."
Telsyte says that the explosion in smartphone usage will have a profound effect on the media industry. It expects that many online publishers in Australia will have more people using smartphones to access their content than those using computers.

 "The inflection point will occur sometime during 2014 and could result in more traffic and revenue generated by smartphones than online, depending on the nature of their offerings. Online publishers will need to fundamentally re-organise and re-engineer their businesses for this post-PC world," Fadaghi said.

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.
