National Narrowband Network Co, the Australian company building a national narrowband network in Australia for IoT, has appointed former Vocus chief financial officer Rick Correll to a newly created position as director, corporate development.

Correll has worked in financial and general executive roles for a range of companies including Vocus, Austar, News Limited and Ernst & Young and his appointment follows the recent announcement of Newcastle-based entrepreneur Chris Deere’s appointment to the NNNCo Board as well as the appointment of Tony Tilbrook as chief operating officer and chief technology officer.

“As the adoption of IoT accelerates in Australia and globally, NNNCo needs to scale the business effectively to meet that growing demand,” said NNNCo founder and chief executive Rob Zagarella.

“Rick’s deep commercial experience and ability to develop an enterprise-wide approach to building sustainable business will be of major importance as we move forward.”

Zagarella said that during his tenure as chief financial officer of Vocus, Correll was a key driver of the telecommunications company’s journey from pre-IPO state to an ASX 100 company with market capitalisation exceeding $5 bn.

Correll said, “I’m excited to work with this next big technology revolution that will transform the way we live. The information that enterprises and consumers can obtain through connecting their assets with sensors will not only save them time and money, but also improve the quality of life and work for many people.”

“NNNCo’s potential is unlimited. I believe the company can accelerate the take up and value add from successful IoT implementation through its end-to end-product set which allows essentially any IoT device and transmission network to be aggregated for the benefit of the end customer.

“Having proved its business model, NNNCo is now ready to scale the business to meet the mass adoption of IoT. I am looking forward to helping NNNCo anticipate and meet the steps required to scale."

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.
