Alcatel-Lucent?s visiting Strategic Marketing Director, Customer and Market Insight ,Marc Jadoul will deliver a public lecture on IoT and Smart Cities at the University of Melbourne.
It has been shown that high-speed broadband Internet access enhances GDP growth. But Australia?s broadband speed lags well behind other advanced and even emerging economies. In April 2009, at the time the National Broadband Network (NBN) was announced, Australia?s average broadband download speed was ranked 39th in the world. And while the rollout of the NBN is now being ramped up, Australia recently slipped to 59th place.
This MEMBERS ONLY event incorporates a sandwich lunch and the TelSoc's Annual General Meeting followed by a lecture about the nbn Satellite program presented by Gavin Williams.
Where are the key areas of technology innovation going to occur? What opportunities are there for Australia and Australian companies? Why should we be optimistic about future changes? And what will Telstra?s place be in all this?
The Internet of Things (IoT) has been reported as ?the most over-hyped technology. This presentation will refute that claim, present a guided tour to some of the key concepts and technologies of IoT, explain the distinction between the Internet of Things and the Internet of Everything, look at the importance of government taking a lead role in IoT, and present some real world use cases that demonstrate real practical applications for IoT.
Warren Lemmens will introduce a set of key principles supporting the operational market structure and processes for this future environment, together with the key multi-party relationships and interdependencies to ensure Australian telecommunications services sector can maximise its ability to grow and capitalise on the strategic and economic potential of the digital economy.
The TelSoc would like to invite all members and industry professionals to celebrate the end of year 2015. There will be little in the way of formalities, just a focus on getting as many people as possible connected around any topic of interest.
Based on well-founded economic modelling, this presentation will show there are substantial benefits arising from the roll-out of Australia's National Broadband Network (NBN). The presentation will also explore some of the issues around the bandwidth requirements for services and look at short-term effects during the NBN?s construction phase.
Laureate Emeritus Professor Rod Tucker will provide an overview of competing broadband technologies, and address the question of what Australia needs to do to become a world leader in broadband connectivity.
