Vatcher vaults in to top job at Avaya ANZ

By

Communications vendor Avaya has appointed Simon Vatcher as its ANZ managing director.

"Simon's experience in the communications and telco industries in Australia and abroad ensures we can enable organisations and their employees to connect, collaborate, and ultimately better service their customers at this time of heightened need," said Avaya vice president for East Asia and the Pacific Sami Ammous.

"With a renewed local strategy focused on long-term, high value relationships with customers and partners, our ANZ business is poised to provide the market with tailored solutions that make them truly agile so they can adapt quickly, and deliver exceptional experiences for their teams and customers under any conditions."

Vatcher joined Avaya from Optus, where he held several senior roles, most recently that of vice president.

He previously served two stints at Excellis as managing director, worked as a client executive at Logica, held director-level roles at Fujitsu, and as technical services director at JPMorgan Chase.

Earlier in his career Vatcher worked in technical roles at Eurobell, Telewest and Bristow Helicopters.

"My priority is to introduce data-driven growth strategies so that our customers and partners can not only rapidly deploy our comprehensive communication solutions but maximise the benefits they gain from those capabilities in shorter time scales," he said.

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.
