内蒙快三预测一定牛A decision by the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission to cut the price of the Mobile Terminating Access Service from 1 January 2021 from 1.7 cents per minute to 1.19 cents per minute will bring down the wholesale price of mobile voice services.

内蒙快三预测一定牛The competition watchdog said in a statement that the drop in price paid by a telecommunications network operator to a mobile network operator for connecting calls was the final determination from the ACCC’s public inquiry into terms and conditions on which mobile network operators must provide the MTAS.

“Mobile network operators will be required to charge less for providing the MTAS and that enables providers who rely on the MTAS to pass on the savings in their retail offers to consumers,” ACCC chair Rod Sims said.

内蒙快三预测一定牛The ACCC said the MTAS was an essential wholesale service that allowed consumers on different mobile networks to call each other, and for consumers on a landline to call another on a mobile network. Regulating this service meant mobile network operators had to connect or "terminate" calls from other networks.

“Mobile network operators upgrade their network technology regularly leading to reduced costs, including the cost of the MTAS. We are expecting them to pass on their gains from more efficient technologies to consumers,” Sims said.

内蒙快三预测一定牛The shutdown of 2G networks prior to 2019 had been a major driver in the reduction in the cost of the MTAS in Australia, he added

“We recognise there are retail plans which allow you to make unlimited calls but our inquiry found that a significant portion of consumers heavily rely on voice calls and still pay very high usage charges. These consumers will benefit most from this decision."

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.
