Visa invests in Stripe to support global expansion Featured

By

Visa has formed a strategic partnership with mobile and online payment provider Stripe to support new technologies and online payment experiences for merchants, developers and consumers worldwide.

Visa has made a financial investment in Stripe as part of the new alliance which will allow Stripe to accelerate its international expansion, particularly in emerging markets, accessing Visa’s global footprint through its acquiring and issuing partners.

Visa executive vice president, innovation and strategic partnerships, Jim McCarthy said that working together, the companies will enable a global payments solution for new ecommerce experiences like ‘buy buttons’ and other new innovations to come.

Visa says Stripe will also be one of the first beta partners to connect to its network capabilities via APIs and SDKs, offering their developer community access to payment and risk management services, Visa’s tokenisation service and security technologies.

Visa and Stripe have said they will offer an expanded set of capabilities to the developer community and the payment ecosystem worldwide.

McCarthy said “given the explosive growth of new commerce experiences enabled by a global developer community, Visa is expanding its strategic relationships across the payments ecosystem.”

“We are very excited to work with Stripe and leverage our combined assets to broaden our offering to new types of merchants and developers globally.”

Stripe CEO and co-founder Patrick Collison said Stripe aims to give developers the tools they need “to create the most secure and novel buying experiences.”

“Our partnership with Visa will accelerate our ability to expand to markets around the world, and give developers even more control over the end-to-end experience. We’re very excited about the potential.”

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.
