Dimension Data sells out of education business


Dimension Data has sold its education provider business in Australia to the Australian College of Training and Employment (ACTE) Group.

The global ICT services giant announced the sale of its Dimension Data Learning Solutions (DDLS) business, for an undisclosed price, on Thursday.

A brief statement from the company says, “education remains an important part of any IT project” and that it will continue to partner with ACTE Group.

Dimension Data Australia has developed a best-in-class business and technology consulting and services company and will continue to focus on that core business while further accelerating expansion into newer areas such as managed services and digital, while also capitalising on the transformational opportunities offered by IT-as-a-Service,” the statement says.

In May, as reported by iTWire, Dimension Data announced an exclusive Australian partnership with Ellucian, a leading global provider of higher education software and services, to sell and deliver Ellucian’s portfolio of software and solutions, and provide consulting and implementation services, supported by its recently acquired consulting service, Oakton.

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.
