This event is fully booked or has passed.
The NBN was originally conceived as a wholesale layer-2 network that would replace DSL and provide broadband access to the Internet from anywhere in Australia. That was over a decade ago, before the roll-out of 4G mobile networks. Since then technology has moved on, and 5G is now upon us.
Does 5G represent an opportunity for the NBN to offer new wholesale services in addition to its existing layer-2 offerings?
Can the NBN support the roll-out of 5G services in Australia?
This seminar examines two new wholesale services that NBN Co might offer its retail service providers: Cloud networks and 5G hot spots.
Please see below for the Zoom recording of this event.
Dr Bruce Davie, formerly CTO, Asia Pacific and Japan for VMware will provide an introduction to cloud networks and discuss how retail service providers might use them to deploy network services. He will use 5G, which is cloud native, as an example.
Andrew Hamilton, a telecommunications engineer and the 5G lead for the TelSoc Broadband Futures Group will look at ways in which NBN Co might offer a wholesale cloud network and 5G hot-spot services and how they might contribute to the development of the digital economy.
Registration is via Eventbrite, with the "Book A Seat" button taking you to the Eventbrite page.
