UFO crash site in France

The world's UFO spotters have crashed the French government's X-Files archive within hours of it going online.

Files documenting more than 1600 UFO sightings over the last 50 years have been released as France's National Center for Space Studies opens its X-Files to the public. The site's server crashed under the load after just three hours as the world's UFO spotters descended on the archive in search of answers.

In what is believed to be a world first, more than 100,000 pages of witness testimony, photographs, film and audio recordings have been published at www.cnes-geipan.fr. Dating back to 1954, the archive will continue to be updated as new cases are reported, says Jacques Patenet - head of the space agency's UFO investigative team.

Fifty to 100 sightings are reported every year, with Patenet's team investigating around 10 per cent. Almost a quarter of reports are classified as "Type D", meaning "despite good or very good data and credible witnesses, we are confronted with something we can`t explain," he said.

Security guards stood watch outside the space agency headquarters as the announcement was made, "to screen out uninvited ufologists."

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.
