Oki opens Sydney demo centre


Printer manufacturer Oki Data has opened a product demonstration centre in Sydney.

Oki is arguably not the first company that springs to mind when you think about printers and multifunction devices - players such as Epson, HP, Lexmark and Fuji Xerox get much more limelight.

But Oki is mounting a new push following its recovery from last year's earthquake in Japan and flooding in Thailand which disrupted production. Part of this effort is the opening of its new Australian headquarters in Macquarie Park, Sydney, which incorporates a product demonstration centre.

"Our new demonstration centre has been designed to help potential customers meet the challenges they face with their printing solutions," said Dennie Kazuo Kawahara, managing director of Oki Data Australia.

"Live demonstrations will help users watch the power of our solutions and see different equipment in operation while our experts explain what is really happening. Additionally, we will use the demonstration centre to help customers evaluate the savings they can realistically expect from a proposed print management solution," he added.

The facility, opened this afternoon by Oki Data president Takao Hiramato, will also be used as a training centre for customers and partners.

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.
