Consensus Awards: Innovation shines through lockdown with two major winners


While there weren't as many companies winning richly deserved awards as you'd normally see, the Consensus Awards tradition has continued during unprecedented times, albeit with the same kind of restrictions and Zoom meetings we've all had to endure.

Two highly innovative Australian technologies have won awards in the first round of Consensus Awards in 2020, one a Consensus Software Award and the other a Consensus Innovation Award.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, presentations, evaluations and final assessments were conducted via Zoom to 12 Consensus Judges, with full details at the Consensus Awards website and linked to directly in the headings below. The second-round of Consenus Awards for 2020 opens at the of October and we'll have an article here with all the details - which will also be at the Consensus site.

About the Consensus Awards

Consensus has conducted well over 1,200 assessments of technology innovation since 1999 and has a pool of 180+ independent judges across nine different Awards Programs. 

Former Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull, who has presented the Awards on two occasions said: “The Consensus Awards have a history of celebrating some of the most cutting-edge and innovative Australian tech companies, counting world-famous firms Atlassian and WiseTech Global as former recipients. I have no doubt that this year’s recipients will follow in their success.”

Julian Day, Founder & CEO of Consensus said, “We are very happy with the most recent winners of our Awards during the lockdown due to COVID-19. It goes to show that you can’t keep a good Aussie down! We live and breathe technology innovation and it’s great to see the tradition continue in these unprecedented times.”

The Winners receive global recognition. Each of them receives assistance from Consensus to promote their win to their specific target market. Consensus quite rightly claims to be the world’s most successful awards program with 89% of the Winners of Consensus Awards since 1999 going on to be extremely successful world-wide.

Julian added: “We can confidently predict that nearly all of this year’s winners will be world-wide winners. Our highly experienced judges get it right, year after year, after year, after year.”

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.
