ICT business opportunities in Russia: Austrade


ICT businesses keen to expand their international sales should consider the opportunities available in Russia, with its high-growth economy, emerging consumer class and expanding construction industry, according to Austrade.

An upcoming series of seminars in Australian capitals aims demonstrate the breadth of opportunities that exists in the Russian market and explain how Australian businesses can access them.

"Businesses in ICT sector seeking to take advantage of Russia's economic growth rate of almost seven per cent annually over the past six years can learn a great deal at these market seminars," Moscow-based senior trade commissioner Gregory Klumov said.

"Like any export market, doing business in Russia requires perseverance. But the time is right for Australian ICT companies to achieve significant export deals."

Indicators of Russian economic opportunity (all statistics sourced from DFAT)

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.
