Australia's foreign intelligence agency, ASIS, is looking for potential recruits to fill tech and other roles in the organisation.

To this end, the Australian Secret intelligence Service has launched a campaign with the moniker "ASIS is interested".

Potential recruits would have to be trained in IT, software development, data science, engineering, cyber security or customer service.

ASIS director-general Paul Symon said in a statement: "In today's society, intelligence operations are enabled by a range of highly technical capabilities. We need to be at the cutting edge of tech to stay a step ahead.

"Technologists arm our operational officers with advanced capabilities and they create technical solutions to complex operational challenges. They have natural curiosity, an analytical mindset and a strong desire to innovate.

"The popular image of a technologist with an intelligence agency might be someone who makes gadgets for the field, but in fact there is a wide range of areas from cyber to big data that are becoming increasingly critical to an agency such as ours."

The agency's last campaign to find employees ran under the name "Most Interesting Job Interview" in 2017 and is claimed to have been a success.

The agency's stated mission is to protect the country's interests by providing relevant foreign intelligence to the government.

Symon said ASIS was looking for people who reflected the agency's core values. "These include integrity, respect and honesty – qualities that every ASIS officer shares. At the same time, we are looking for diversity of thought and diversity of experiences," he added.

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.
