Corporations indicate that Vista not a priority

A new survey of senior management and IT executives from small and large organizations indicates that market adoption of Windows Vista will be a long and drawn out process, with many companies having no immediate plans to migrate to the new Microsoft operating system.

A survey conducted by research group IBRS in conjunction with iTWire in July 2006, received 253 reponses, including 38% IT executives, 29% CEOs (all from small companies) and 7% systems admistrators.

The survey covered organisations of all sizes; 59% had <99 desktops, 17% had 99-1000 desktops and 24% 1000+.

When asked when they intend to migrate to Vista; 9% said they will adopt it short after it is released; 10% after service pack 1; 16% as new hardware is installed, 12% only when XP expires and 38% said they do not have any plans to adopt Vista.

Only 17% of the respondents had an agreed strategy; 23% had talked about it but not agreed to a strategy and 61% had not even looked at the issue.

According to the IBRS report, which will be released this week, corporations are aware of Windows Vista, however with less than 20% or survey respondents having an agreed to strategy for dealing with the migration, Vista is not a high priority.

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.
