Tech21 toughens up iPhone 5, Galaxy S4

By

Mobile phone protection specialist Tech21 has launched what it claims to be "the world’s most advanced screen impact protection" for the iPhone 5 and Samsung Galaxy S4.

Tech21's $29.95 Impact Shield screen protector for the iPhone 5 and Samsung Galaxy S4 has multiple layers in order to combine several desirable features that are not available from a single material.

A hard top layer spreads the impact and has the ability to self-heal minor scratches.

The middle layer - made from a BASF polymer used in military-grade bullet-proof glass - absorbs the impact.

A soft base layer further absorbs the impact, with as little as 20% of the original force reaching the phone's screen.

In addition to impact protection, this combination of materials is said to provide excellent optical clarity, a thin film, and a gloss finish.

"Tech21 wanted to apply its innovative Impactology technology to screen protection, and spent two years studying the wear and tear of devices and looking for the best available materials and ingredients specifically focusing on optical perfection to create Impact Shield," said CEO Jason Roberts.

Impact Shield is available at Vodafone stores.

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.
