Ever wondered: Where, what and how customer premises devices are tested? What a simulated home of a lounge, bedrooms and entertainment room with fixed wire and wireless devices look like? Are you interested to look at example of how services to home are connected via pit and pipe for copper and fibre? Would you like to learn about NBN and Fibre To The Premises Network Termination Devices?

The strategic advantage in Cyber security remains with the attacker rather than defender. To complicate matters, there is a trend towards a quite different set of threats which the current suite of countermeasures are not well designed to address.

The Telecommunication Society of Australia is grateful to the following sponsors for supporting the Society and its journal the Telecommunications Journal of Australia in support of a well-informed telecommunications industry.

Today there are more mobile phones then there are people. Technologies including mobile payments, augmented reality and M2M communications are changing the way we interact with people and devices.

This presentation describes numerous solutions and applications SAP has developed to address some of these emerging concepts.

The Telecommunication Society of Australia (TSA) has served the Australian telecommunications industry as its learned society since its initial formation as the Telegraph Electrical Society in 1874, in response to enthusiasm for the then new engineering science of electrical telegraphy. Since then the Society has evolved in response to the industry?s growth through successive phases of industry restructuring: the introduction of telephony by the private sector (1880); nationalization following Federation of Australia (1901); the passing of the Postmaster-General Department?s monopoly role (1902?1975) to the arms-length government business Telecom Australia (1975?92); and the introduction of competition with the staged privatisation of Telecom Australia?s successor, Telstra, in 1991, 1997 and 2005.
Throughout its 137-year history, the Society has kept industry members informed of new developments in network infrastructure, products and services, regulatory changes, end user experience and policy issues, through a combination of lunchtime lectures, major industry networking events, and the publication of newsletters and journals, most especially (since 1935) the Telecommunications Journal of Australia.

This presentation provides an example of how the Cloud can be utilised to quickly establish an international business with inherent cost and performance advantages. It also explains why delivery of web content via the Cloud will become a mainstream way of conducting business for industries ranging from Banking to Television and beyond.

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.
