NetComm sets up US R&D facility

By

NetComm Wireless has ramped up its US market expansion with the establishment of its first research and development (R&D) facility outside of Australia.

The Australian wireless broadband provider has launched the new R&D facility in Sunrise, Florida, following closely behind its recent announcement of a major contract win for its fixed wireless business in the US.

NetComm chief executive and managing director, David Stuart, says the company has experienced “tremendous growth” in recent years and will continue to invest in the R&D resources needed to accelerate the expansion of its business in the US and globally.

“Our new R&D centre will allow us to meet the specific needs of our US-based customers and partners, while strengthening our product design, development and testing capabilities," Stuart said.

The new R&D facility currently employs two teams of approximately 30 experienced software, hardware and radio frequency (RF) engineers.

NetComm says the selection of the Sunrise area in Florida became an obvious choice. “It is a significant technology hub attracting a substantial number of multinational technology based companies and has a large pool of talented telecommunications engineers,” the company says in a statement.

And, in its Australian home market, NetComm has announced the expansion of its R&D facilities in Sydney and Melbourne.

Now’s the Time for 400G Migration

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.
