The Networked Society Symposium showcases the breadth of research occurring at the Melbourne Networked Society Institute. It provides an opportunity to connect, engage and debate the matters essential to the networked society. The symposium also provides networking opportunities with researchers, industry, policy makers and the community. The day includes research presentations, keynote speakers, interactive demonstrations, panel discussions, and plenty of catered breaks in between.
This MEMBERS ONLY event incorporates a sandwich lunch, the TelSoc's Annual General Meeting and a lecture by Rod Tucker - Laureate Emeritus Professor in the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering at the University of Melbourne.
The TelSoc Forum 2017 which was planned on 22-23 November in Melbourne has unfortunately been cancelled.
Bevan Slattery has been exceptional in identifying and servicing up and coming markets, from network connectivity in Pipe Networks, to Data Centres in NextDC to international connections and networks in Superloop and Megaport.
A prime example as Australia’s leading entrepreneur in Telecommunications and IT, he has not slowed down, having founded and played a leading role in four new ventures over the last four years
Bevan has an excellent track record in identifying the upcoming markets so far. What does he think are the key issues over the next few years?
Rod Tucker and John de Ridder have written an open letter to Bill Morrow at NBN Co. proposing (a) that the volume of data should replace bandwidth (CVCs) as the basis for usage charging and (b) that the users should full access to the bandwidth capabilities of the NBN with the number of AVC speed tiers reduced to two.
The availability of telecommunications services are critical to the functioning of society, and even more so during the preparations for and recovery from natural disasters. Importantly, Telecommunications companies need to be key enablers of a society resilient to climate change, and to do so they must be foremost resilient themselves. This is to protect their business (assets, staff and brand), to ensure the risks are financially transparent to shareholders, and to meet the expectations of society.
David Goad presents some of the current IoT design challenges and solutions couched in SIoT that can be used as standards for future IoT designs to reduce Architectural Heterogeneity.
Telstra is rebuilding its networks with virtualisation, orchestration and automation to deliver highly scalable product solutions. Crispin Blackall's presentation will describe the associated network transition and how microservices will drive speed and agility in how we build new products and services.
NBN Co’s is rapidly coming to the realization that it has a PR issue on its hands. Many NBN retail customers are complaining about the quality of their service, and what is particularly frustrating for many customers is that it is not clear who to blame. Do they blame their retail service provi
The True Cost of FTTP
This presentation will discuss the factors significant in household consumers' adoption of innovations and the differences to organisational adoption. It will draw on research identifying a new key factor influencing household intention to adopt high-speed broadband, with a surprising counter-intuitive result from earlier qualitative research.
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 ...
The best way to minimise the value of the NBN is to jerk it around and change direction; the next best way is to build it to a reduced specification. A 93% fibre network is worth a lot more than a network with 60% FTTN, both to a potential purchaser AND to an ongoing owner. The real economic promise of the NBN is the ubiquity of a single, uniform solution.
Oh for a politician with a little vision to see the possibilities!
(... and the gumption to leave the design and build to qualified and visionary engineers)
This article reviews recent developments in global broadband deployments and highlights the growing global dominance of fibre to the premises (FTTP). Australia’s increasing use of fibre to the node (FTTN) has locked the country out of world-class broadband for years to come. If Australia is ever to obtain first-class broadband services, it will be necessary to replace FTTN with higher speed technologies.
The telecommunications industry is growing and changing at a very high pace. The growth is not only in terms of volume but also in terms of changing needs and technology. To keep up with this high pace and fast changing technologies countries need strong legislation and an efficient regulatory system to promote fair competition in industry. This presentation is a review of existing telecommunications’ legislation and regulations in New Zealand.
The Australian Driverless Vehicle Initiative (ADVI) is the peak industry advisory body that services the wide ecosystem of automated vehicle activities across Australia and New Zealand. Noel O’Callaghan, will be speaking on “Driverless Vehicles and how they will impact our roads” and will include details on what’s been happening nationally over the last 12 months and where the driverless space is going, plus impacts on society, regulators etc.
By 2050, the UK, Germany and several other countries will only allow new electric passenger cars to be registered. Toyota will phase out petrol and diesel cars by 2050. If all cars are electric vehicles, the electric-power demand will double.
Jose will explore and discuss Low-Power Wide-Area Network (LPWAN) solutions based on LTE-NB, LoRaWAN and Sigfox for IoT services in the Australia/New Zealand region.
Smarter cities and innovation are on the national agenda, but how does a city get smarter and why does it matter?
