The ACCC is inviting comment on a discussion paper relating to Telstra’s migration plan that involves what is known as the ‘pull through’ process. Telstra says it may need to use this process to connect some premises to the NBN.
Broken Hill, in the far west of New South Wales, has been selected as the location for an NBN satellite ground station that will play a crucial role in providing Australians in isolated areas with access to fast broadband.
Over the last few years, telecom operators have started to introduce packet based networks and thus two letters became the most pronounced ones: ‘I’ and ‘P’. This being said, the migration to a packed based technology invariable comes with a lot of interrogations and changes. Our company Oscilloquartz had to adapt our offering and services to propose new tailored solutions for our customers.
Nutanix’s Complete Cluster turnkey platform employs VMware’s core virtualisation technology and Fusion-io flash for cost-effective virtualised Hadoop deployments that demand high IO performance and rapid capacity expansion without the need for a SAN or NAS.
Visualisation capability on Fluke Networks OptiView XG Tablet gives network engineers an instant view, reducing troubleshooting time.
Spirent Communications now offers enterprise IT managers and network system developers the ability to validate at scale the performance and security of their advanced network virtualisation and virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) deployments.
VSS Monitoring has introduced a suite of NPB appliances and software capabilities which are claimed to deliver the industry’s only fabric-system approach for enhancing global visibility and operational performance for network monitoring and security systems.
The complexity of combined business IT systems has lead to a proliferation of hardware installations. When adding a major new software system, the safest option has often been to install it on its own dedicated server, rather than risk unforeseen problems from resource conflict or software compatibility with other software systems. Thus data centres evolved with ever increasing numbers of servers, many running at as little as 5 to 10% capacity, contributing to the fact that IT power consumption already has a larger carbon footprint than the airline industry.
