Our guest this week on A Series of Tubes is Dr James Kershaw, product manager at junior telco Nextgen Networks.
Nextgen is marching to a slightly different drum in its enterprise services: while most carriers have focussed on rolling out all-IP national networks, Nextgen has built a national VPLS (Virtual Private Label Switched) network.
In this interview, Dr Kershaw talks about the reasons behind Nextgen's choice of technology, and why the carrier believes a transparent end-to-end Ethernet LAN makes life easier for its customers.
Also on the show this week, we're joined by Neville James, channels and marketing manager at our sponsor, Nortel Australia-New Zealand. He's talking about Nortel's green computing initiatives.
