NetComm partners with Telefónica on global IoT supply deal

By

Australian wireless broadband equipment provider NetComm Wireless has secured an IoT Device Supply Agreement with Spain-based global telco Telefónica which it says extends its IoT reach to more than 2500 enterprises worldwide.

Under the agreement, the ASX-listed NetComm will supply a range of 3G/4G M2M/IoT devices including the 4G M2M Router (NTC-140); 3G M2M Router Series (NTC-6200) and its 3G Serial Modem (NTC-3000).  

NetComm general manager M2M Philip Micallef says Telefonica is driving digital transformation on a global scale with a focus on IoT innovation as the need for smart remote communication between business assets and machines becomes ever more critical for enterprises globally.

According to Micallef, both Telefonica and NetComm Wireless have received notable recognition for IoT innovation with NetComm having received the Australian communications industry's highest accolade for IoT innovation, the IoT Innovator ACOMMS Award.

He also noted that Telefonica appeared for the third year running in the "Leaders" quadrant of Gartner's report "Magic Quadrant for Managed Machine-to-Machine Services, Worldwide" published in October 2016.

In February this year NBN Co, the company building Australia's national broadband network, announced it had placed a $28 million order with NetComm for the supply of distribution point units.

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.
