Kogan seeks to lure ‘data heavy’ mobile users with latest plans

By

Online discounter Kogan has kept up the market pressure to lure mobile users to its services with the launch of a new deal on mobile plans which it claims sets a new “value benchmark” for mobile access.

Under plans announced on Thursday, uptil May 31 Kogan is pitching to  “price conscious” mobile customer access to all of its 30-day pre-paid plans for $4.90,including what it  says is an “extra large” deal that provides for 14GB of data plus unlimited standard national calls and text.

According to David Shafer, executive director at Kogan Mobile, the new offer marks the cheapest deal per megabyte of data that the company has offered.

“The new offering represents an opportunity for Australians who are looking for affordable mobile data to try out a trusted network.

“We’re using our smartphones more every day. Whether we’re texting, calling, or streaming and downloading content, Australians are relying on our phones, and the last thing we want to worry about is bill shock at the end of the month.

“Kogan Mobile provides a low-cost way for Aussies to remove the worry caused by mobile phone bills – with unlimited national talk and text, and a huge data allowance, there is no need to risk spending more than you were expecting.

“Best of all, for $4.90, there is now an easy and inexpensive way for everybody to see why hundreds of thousands of Australians are making the switch to Kogan Mobile.”

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.
