Cellphones must make emergency calls when locked

ACIF has revised its technical standard covering cellphones to require that they can be used to make emergency calls even when locked.

ACIF says this will be important in situations where the person dialling is not familiar with the phone, for example, where a mobile phone user is involved in an accident and a passer-by picks up the locked handset to call for help or where a child at home uses the mobile phone of an incapacitated parent to call emergency services.

The standard has also been updated to include handsets such as screen-based devices like Personal Digital Assistants (PDAs) that have touch screen keypads.

Another section of the revised standard introduces new requirements to limit the sound output of mobile phones to prevent damage to users' hearing.

The standard is being forwarded to the Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) for registration and once registered will become mandatory.

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.
