Atug calls for Government funded alternative network

The Australian Telecommunications Users Group (Atug) has called on the Government to fund a telecoms network as the only solution to what it says are intractable problems resulting from Telstra's ownership of the current access network.

In its weekly opinion column, Atug says: "The Government should use its funds, in conjunction with State Governments, funders and industry...to create infrastructure competition at the wholesale level."

It says the outcome of this approach would be "a national, open access, network company which sees access seekers as customers, not competitors."

Describing the plan as "bold and imaginative" Atug says: "more of the same is not going to work. The government will be playing cat and mouse with a company [Telstra] determined not to be regulated and consumers and businesses not getting the telecommunications services and prices they ought to be after 15 years of competition."

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.
