This public forum aims to critically examine the concept of metadata and its potential advantages and disadvantages in fashioning the networked society. The forum will bring together a panel to define metadata, explore its uses and probe its limitations.
The National Broadband Network (NBN) is a nation building project that will underpin Australia's telecommunications and broadband services for the next thirty years. This presentation will provide details of the technologies being used to build the NBN and discuss the opportunities for new technologies and engineering advances to enhance the NBN over time whilst reducing the rollout duration and cost.
A comprehensive review of current and new technologies for back-up power in the telecommunications industry and a discussion about how the use of hydrogen cell technology is set to grow rapidly in the Australian market place.
Pine Gap has been operational since its first satellite, Rhyolite 1 was launched on 19 June 1970. The facility has been instrumental in signals intelligence collection during the two Iraq wars, the Balkans conflicts, and Afghanistan after the 9/11 attacks and the subsequent ‘war on terror’. It’s presence in Australia has been a topic of debate for over 40 years.
Software is becoming increasingly pervasive in modern day living. We have been witnessing dramatic changes and improvements in our lives courtesy of software-based devices and systems.
Light emitting diodes (LEDs) can be modulated at frequencies in the megahertz range for carrying high data rate signals up to 1Gbit/s. Known as Visible Light Communications (VLC), this technology can be used in association with radio frequency communications (eg. Wi-Fi or cellular networks) or as a means for data broadcasting. LEDs can also enable very accurate indoor positioning capabilities based on Visual Light Positioning (VLP) technology. This presentation ...
The next disruptive trend arising from ICT technologies will be a societal phase transition as we move to a fully connected world in which a vast number of machines and devices distributed around the planet collect, store, process and exchange information to enhance our daily lives - The Internet of Things. It has been predicted that the number of such devices could be over 100 billion virtually ...
The shape of the Coalition’s NBN is becoming clearer, but what will this mean to competition? The market is in a state of evolution bordering on revolution, with challenges for all players big and small. Much will depend on how they respond. The regulators can heavily influence the outcomes for both competition and consumers; but should regulation be limited to ensuring the NBN is not able to exercise its monopoly power? The trick will be to not stifle the competitive forces and technical advances sweeping our telecommunications and media industries.
