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.
This month's TelSoc lunchtime lecture follows the TelSoc AGM. It includes Gary McLaren and Bob James discussing the status of NBN today. Is it back on track, or could a yet another path emerge? The 3 major reviews of the NBN have now been delivered and provide much to discuss.
The NBN was born out of political controversy. The burgeoning digital economy demands ubiquitous future-proof broadband access to return its dividends of massive social benefits, service delivery and productivity improvements, and global business opportunities. But not everyone foresees the benefits nor is comfortable with the costs. Mike Quigley addresses the challenges and the lessons learned in managing the largest infrastructure project ever undertaken in Australia. Mike was awarded with the Charles Todd Medal for 2013 at this event.
The National Broadband Network is one of the largest infrastructure projects in Australia?s history and will forever change the telecommunications landscape in Australia. The NBN is expected to deliver high speed broadband services to all Australians no matter where they live, and through it, structurally reform the telecommunications sector.
