Global energy management company Schneider Electric has appointed Philippe Rambach as its new Vice President of Industry Business.

A 15-year industry veteran, prior to his appointment Rambach was VP for Schneider Electric in France, working across the company’s Variable Frequency Drives Business and the Intelligent Electronic Devices Business. He also worked with Areva T&D before it was sold to Schneider and has also held senior posts at Johnson Controls, and Sagem (Safran group).

In his new role, Rambach will oversee Schneider’s operations in mining, minerals and metals, food & beverage and water/wastewater.

Stephen Coop, Zone President Pacific, Schneider Electric said the next few years are “crucial for Rambach as Schneider Electric develops synergies across the multiple solution and service domains of its organisation, while at the same time implements an aggressive growth strategy for its products.”

“As Australia’s economic environment moves through a significant period of change brought about by factors such as commodity prices, social / environmental pressures, and a shift in global demand for Australian products and resources, industry is increasingly looking to optimise existing assets,” Coop said.

“Philippe’s appointment will help Schneider Electric deliver best-of-breed solutions and products that can help manufacturing and critical infrastructure operations to maximise the performance of their existing plants and facilities.

“Philippe is a strategic and passionate leader with a wealth of experience and proven capability across Schneider Electric’s global businesses. His appointment will benefit Schneider Electric’s customers, partners and employees and ensure that Schneider Electric is best placed to help industry manage the changes ahead.”

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.
