Digital bank 86 400 has unvelied what it claims is the first consumer-facing feature developed using Open Banking product data, a real-time comparison graph of savings interest rates.

In a statement, the bank said it was using product data available from participating banks under the consumer data right to provide an easily understandable set of statistics.

"Due to dynamic market conditions, it's not always easy for consumers to compare the interest rates on different saving accounts," said 86 400 chief executive Robert Bell.

"This leads to apathy and a situation where too many Australians have their hard-earned savings netting them next-to-nothing in interest.

"We believe this is the first example of Open Banking product data being used to provide Australian consumers with greater transparency and choice.

"Rates are arguably the most important consideration when selecting a savings account, but often the most confusing.

"We're removing the effort of comparing different options by showing how the savings rates of each of the majors compare with 86 400.

"This is just one way that we are helping Australians take control of their money, and means they can easily find the savings account that best suits their needs."

The bank said it was looking to build additional products based on similar data. It has also published APIs for its deposit and lending products, which are now available to developers.

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.
