Konica Minolta new MD now on deck

By

Recently appointed Konica Minolta Australia managing director Yohei Konaka has now officially taken on his new role.

COVID-19 delayed Konaka's official appointment, so for the past six months he has been working remotely with outgoing managing director David Cooke and the executive team. Cooke will stay on for another two months in a consultancy role, helping Konaka with employees, customers and partners either face-to-face or virtually.

Konaka has been with Konica Minolta for 20 years, most recently holding a senior role in the company's digital workplace business in Japan, and has also held sales and strategic planning positions in North America.

"I look forward to taking on this role and continuing to drive the legacy that Dr David Cooke has left, as well as looking at ways to drive Konica Minolta Australia into the future," said Konaka.

"There is no doubt that the global pandemic has resulted in a challenging and changing business environment, and it is important for Konica Minolta Australia, and its customers, to consider the way forward from here to ensure success."

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.
