Ahead of the Christmas shopping season, Bankwest, a division of the Commonwealth Bank, has added a "Look Who's Charging" service to its mobile app, allowing users to see their purchases at a glance.

The bank said in a statement that the new feature would enable any user to immediately recognise a purchase instead of puzzling over the vendor.

The new service can be invoked by the touch of a button and displays more detail for both credit and debit card transactions.

Bankwest executive general manager, Technology and Transformation, Andy Weir, said the new service was introduced as a direct result of customer feedback.

“We continually speak to our customers and we’ve heard them tell us one of their main sources of frustration and stress is when they have to dispute a transaction," he said.

“This new digital service will offer our customers the ability to self-serve - something they tell us they want to be able to do time and again - and find out where their money’s gone.

“More often than not nothing sinister’s occurred and the confusion’s arisen because of the trading name of the business. With this new service the customer will be able to see enough detail to alleviate any concern they may have."

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.
