AVG signs three year deal with Sony Mobile


Online security firm AVG has announced a three year partnership with Sony Mobile to be the exclusive provider of mobile security to its customers.

In the US and UK Xperia Z3 series smartphones and tablets will include AVG’s flagship AVG AntiVirus PRO for Android app, while those devices will launch in Australia this month.

They already boast key features like waterproof casing and PS4 compatibility, but Sony can now also tout a free 180 trial of AVG AntiVirus Pro.

Xperia users will receive a free 180 day trial of the AVG AntiVirus PRO for Android app, after which they can either purchase the annual subscription to keep the enhanced features or opt for the default 'AVG AntiVirus FREE'.

“The popularity of consumer apps, device proliferation and the bring-your-own-device trend in the workplace means we are spending more time on our connected devices and entrusting them with a broader range of personal and financial data. As a result, more people now expect to put in place security protection when they purchase a mobile device, whatever they plan to use it for,” said David Ferguson, General Manager Consumer & Mobile, AVG Technologies.

“AVG is already looking ahead to a future with AVG Zen where smart, connected devices in the home and personal devices like wearables could also be protected. With this vision of the Internet of Things starting to become a reality, people are confidently getting online through smartphones and tablets and providing AVG’s security apps will give Xperia device users peace of mind.”

AVG said its AntiVirus FREE for Android was the first mobile security application to exceed 100 million downloads on the Google Play Store. AVG's apps are available for download here.

Preorders for Sony's Z3 range are now open.

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.
