Given the current Covid-19 crisis and the greater shift to digital channels by customers, the need for digital accessibility is paramount.

In the video interview which is embedded above, I introduce Greg Barnett and ask him to tell us about AccessHQ, what it does and when it started.

Then Greg explained where the digital experience team sits within Access HQ, and his journey in the world of tech that has led him to his current GM position.

We discussed the state of digital accessibility in Australia in 2020, and whether there's more to do, as well as talking about digital accessibility for those with different abilities and disabilities, whether digital accessibility was being worked on as a core part of the process or whether it was being bolted on at the end.

We looked at what the webinar would cover and who should attend.

We then covered parent company Dialog and what its various arms do, in a nutshell.

After this came a look at where digital accessibility will be by 2030, great advice that Greg has received in life, and his final message to viewers, readers and webinar attendees.

So, if you have a spare 30 minutes to learn about Digital Accessibility on Thursday, October 15 2020 from 1.00 to 1.30pm AEDT via Zoom, you can register to attend free here.

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.
