Flat out like a lizard drinking – OPPO’s Aussie Emoji


OPPO Mobile Australia has released its collection of Australian emoji, capturing the spirit of Aussie culture in emoji form.

It’s in the form of an Android keyboard app that gives access to more than 40 specially commissioned Australian icons and phrases. These can be shared from within the app itself or via the OPPO keyboard.

"Emojis are part of our modern culture, with our research showing that three out five Aussies believe emoji has now become the universal language for messaging,” said Michael Tran, CMO at OPPO Mobile Australia. “We're excited to be releasing these emojis to be shared across the nation. We know Aussies will love them, and we're already developing new emojis to be included in the next update."

The first round of emoji covers the nation's culture, wildlife and tucker, icons like the Sydney Harbour Bridge, "Stone the Flamin' Crows", Shrimp on the Barbie, and Budgie Smugglers.

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.
