Cloud platform and services firm Versent has appointed former AWS ANZ managing director Paul Migliorini as a non-executive director.

The ANZ operation of AWS is claimed to be the biggest cloud business in the ANZ region.

In a statement, Migliorini said: "During my time with AWS, Versent was a crucial partner and I have been impressed by the team’s expertise and customer-focused approach.

"[The year] 2020 has been a period of immense change and it’s a critical time for many organisations – businesses need to find better and smarter ways to operate and Versent are the experts in helping them do that.”

Before he worked with AWS, Migliorini was the chief executive of IWG (formerly Regus) for ANZ, where he developed and ran a portfolio of more than 80 workspaces across the region.

His other jobs have included managing director at BT (ANZ and ASEAN) and leadership roles at Motorola and Ernst & Young in Australia and across Asia.

“Paul is a proven leader and his guidance and extensive network will support our growth as we continue to evolve and expand into new markets over the coming months,” said Thor Essman, chief executive and founder of Versent.

“The COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated the technology modernisation imperative for many organisations and Versent’s expertise in helping these businesses transform has led to significant growth for the business.

"We’re delighted to have a leader of Paul’s capability and expertise join the board.”

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.
