NBN Co has completed a successful proof of concept of Infinera's XR optics point-to-multipoint coherent optical technology.
Mr McGuire might have advised graduate Dustin Hoffman to get into plastics back in the 1960s, but it's a good thing PacketLight's founders decided that fiber optical transport solutions were the ideal way to deliver our fantastically elastic present and an even more amazing future still before us.
GUEST CONTRIBUTION As the explosion in the capacity demands of data-hungry applications outpaces current high-speed transport abilities, 400G is a promising new technology that supports an immediate need in fibre optics with comparatively low operational expenses (OPEX) and smaller footprint.

As the explosion in the capacity demands of data-hungry applications outpaces current high-speed transport abilities, 400G is a promising new technology that supports an immediate need in fibre optics with comparatively low operational expenses (OPEX) and smaller footprint.
Nokia Bell Labs has claimed a world record with its researchers setting the record for the highest single carrier bit rate at 1.52 Terabits per second (Tbit/s) over 80 km of standard single mode fibre -- the equivalent of simultaneously streaming 1.5 million YouTube videos – or four times the market’s current state-of-the-art of approximately 400 Gigabits per second.
The trans-Pacific Southern Cross NEXT Cable has now entered the construction phase with the project achieving CIF (Contract in Force).
Vodafone New Zealand is claiming a world first live deployment of a 400 gigabit per wavelength optical system which it maintains is a major step in future-proofing its national transport network.
Australian-listed infrastructure provider of dark fibre connectivity services, Superloop (ASX: SLC), is investing in the initial phase of Project Red Lion, an initiative to extend its network to some of Singapore’s most strategic commercial buildings.
iiNet has been contracted by the Tasmanian Government to deploy Internet access services across the state’s public sector.
The worldwide FTTx optics market is being driven to record levels on the back of a number of positive developments in the China market, including FTTH network deployments by China Mobile and network builds by China Telecom and China Unicom.
Nextgen Networks has secured a deal with mining company Roy Hill to provide high-speed data connections between the miner’s communications system in Port Hedland and its Perth-based remote operations centre.
Fibre optics networks vendor Nextgen Networks has appointed former AAPT CEO David Yuile as Managing Director.
Ericsson and Telstra have demonstrated transmission of data at 1Tbps per wavelength over 995kms of Telstra's existing fibre between Sydney and Melbourne - a tenfold increase on the best that current technology can manage.
Security video specialist Axis has announced a new camera designed to operate in desert conditions, plus a ruggedised analog encoder for tough - though not quite so demanding - environments.
Huawei Australia has expanded its relationship with Finisar Australia - the Australian arm of global optical fibre transmission company Finisar - with a MoU covering several new types of wavelength selective switches (WSS), and is trialling Finisar technology that paves the way for 1Tbps per wavelength fibre in the future.
There's no shortage of communications capacity at Melbourne Park, home of the Australian Open. And there's plenty of redundancy built into the facilities.
Industry analyst Ovum has released a list of its predictions of the top telecoms trends for 2011.
An expanded supply agreement between Huawei and NSW-based Finisar Australia will see an increase in the local manufacture of a key component of fibre optic networks.
