Space Station prepares for load of supplies from Russians

Progress 26, an unmanned Russian cargo ship, is to be launched  for a trip to the International Space Station to replenish supplies for Expedition 15 members.

The spacecraft is scheduled to arrive at the ISS on Sunday, August 5, 2007 with tons of cargo for the three crewmembers onboard the orbiting research laboratory.

The ship is expected to carry replacement parts for the Russian computer systems that had problems earlier in the year.

Expedition 15 members aboard the ISS are: Russian commander Fyodor Yurchikhin, Russian flight engineer Oleg Kotov, and American flight engineer Clayton Anderson.

NASA TV is expected to carry the docking activities scheduled to begin around 2:00 EDT (1800 GMT), with the docking at around 2:38 EDT.

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.
