How are nbn users actually using the Internet and what is needed to meet this?

Wednesday, 20th June 2018

Non-members: $20.00; Financial members: FREE (discount applied when logged in).

This event is fully booked or has passed.

This is an online live stream of this year's TelSoc HSO to your mobile, tablet or computer .  The live stream will be provided using Zoom (see for technical details relating to your device) and the access details will be distributed by email the day before the event.

Each year TelSoc hosts the Henry Sutton Oration in Melbourne to commemorate the distinguished Victorian scientist, engineer and inventor from Ballarat, Henry Sutton - who is scarcely known, but had a string of accomplishments and innovations in many areas.

We are pleased to have as the Orator distinguished innovator and technologist who has given a previous oration, but is now in a new and challenging role - Ray Owen, CTO of NBN Co.

Ten years from its inception, nbn now has 3.8m active users; this provides NBN Co with an extraordinary ability to see how the Internet is actually  being used. The presentation will analyse the statistics, growth expectations for traffic and the nbn responses to meet the technology evolution on the multi-technology mix to support this growth.

Henry Sutton has an astounding list of accomplishments in many areas: electricity, lighting, telecommunications, motoring, flight, radio, printing, photography --- a genius in any terms and a good complement to Charles Todd as a legend of early Australian telecommunications.

The online stream for this event will be set-up from 12pm. The formalities will commence from 12:30pm and finish at about 1:30pm.

Note: this is a FREE benefit for TelSoc financial members.
