Marketing services company Salmat has achieved Google accreditation and appointed a new head of search in a move designed to beef up clients’ online marketing activities.

Andrew Lane, who has 12 years’ experience in handling online marketing and sales strategies, first in the telecom industry, at Vodafone and O2 UK, and then Vodafone Hutchinson Australia, takes up the new role.

Salmat chief operating officer – Digital,  Ian Harris, said the investment demonstrated the importance of digital in clients’ marketing mix and would help drive further growth in Salmat's digital business following the recent completion of the purchase of e-commerce experts Netstarter.

“Andrew joins us with significant digital experience and will oversee all activities related to digital and performance marketing to help our clients amplify and optimise their online visibility and grow their revenues. As an expert in this field, he will work to ensure best practice in the development of effective strategies and smart campaigns, and be on the cutting edge of industry updates and changes. Andrew has the experience and knowhow to lead the charge and inspire the team. We’re excited to welcome him.”

Harris said Salmat also recently achieved the Google ‘Premier Partner’ status by meeting Google’s highest standards and criteria for qualification transparency and customer service.

Google launched the Premier Partner Programme last year to recognise agencies which follow best practices and deliver excellence to businesses, advertising with their products such as search, video and display.

The programme connects Google’s experienced marketing partners with businesses seeking experts to create, manage and optimise their digital marketing.

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.
