Di Data's contact centre survey goes online

Dimension Data, has opened participation for its 11th annual benchmarking survey of contact centres around the globe for the first time putting the questionnaire, and subsequent results, online.
Di Data promises that the survey will provide a set of best-practice standards and benchmarks around staffing, training, performance, technology usage, budgets and development plans.

Participants must have a contact centre with 20 or more agents and will receive free access to the survey findings, as well as a new, online comparison tool that will enable them to assess how their contact centre operations stack up with those of their peers. The survey results will also be made available to non-participating organisations for a fee.

"When we polled participants of our 2008 Benchmarking Report, 86 percent said they participated to compare their performance to that of competitors and peers, and identify opportunities for cost reduction and performance improvement," said Martin Dove, Dimension Data's managing director of customer interactive solutions. "Organisations that participate in the 2009 study will be able to easily benchmark the performance of their operations in a world of intense competition and tough targets."

He added: "Last year's respondents also said that the greatest barriers to gaining maximum value from the benchmarking exercises had been the inability to compare results across specific criteria. Publishing the report online and offering a comparison tool will address some of these obstacles by making results easier and more convenient for participants to access."

The 2009 report is expected to summarise responses from more than 500 contact centres in 36 countries across five continents. Interested organisations can visit www.ccbenchmarking.com and register to participate. Submissions will be accepted until March 31, 2009.

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.
