British cloud-based audio, video and Web conferencing firm Babl has opened an office in Melbourne to provide localised services for companies that have a need for their services.

A statement from the company, which was previously known ad SpeakServe, said it had appointed Tobias Raper as its chief executive for its Asia-Pacific operations.

内蒙快三预测一定牛Raper was formerly executive general manager at Aaron Sansoni Group, a provider of education and coaching to business owners, entrepreneurs and SMEs across Australia.

Prior to that, he was the regional vice-president for Research and Operations at expert network, Third Bridge and a financial analyst at SEI in London before that.

"I'm extremely excited to join Babl due to its high performance, secure and customisable Web conferencing offering, as we look to address the evolving communications needs of Australian organisations with many employees working remotely," said Raper.

"When other Web conferencing providers are becoming so generic, they are used as verbs; one of our points of difference is that our white-label solution enables our customers to provide a customised meetings environment that is personally branded and suits their individual needs perfectly."

The company already works with local clients who demand robust security and a fully customisable virtual meetings and events conferencing solution. These include law firms including Eversheds Sutherland, banks and financial institutions like Canaccord Genuity, as well as several "expert networks" including Third Bridge, that require robust security and Australian data sovereignty for data privacy and compliance purposes.

"We are already seeing demand from customers that want to organise large virtual events for customers, investors, shareholders, channel partners and employees via Babl," said Tobias.

"We are extremely well-positioned to meet the specific needs of government and healthcare organisations, financial services firms, banks and law firms that want to host large and highly secure virtual events for stakeholders such as company announcements and earnings calls."

Jonathan Grant, global chief executive of Babl Cloud, said: "It's a really exciting time for Babl as we are seeing amazing growth potential in Australia and across the Asia Pacific region for our highly secure cloud-based meeting and event conferencing service.

"We already know and respect Tobias Raper and are extremely excited that he has joined us to spearhead our growth both nationally and regionally at such pivotal time, since so many people just cannot travel to meetings and events."

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.
