The September 2018 issue provides a mix of public policy debate and technology contributions. Policy papers cover fixed broadband adoption and economic growth in ASEAN and a framework to demystify machine-to-machine spectrum regulation. A technical paper on bitmaps and bitmasks provides an insight into the latest tools and techniques, and an historical paper looks at communications for the America's Cup.

This paper provides a review of selected design and security aspects of 5G systems and addresses key questions about the deployment scenarios of Next Generation Radio Access Networks in Australia. The paper concludes with a discussion on the potential benefits of a telecommunications security assurance centre to improve the whole-of-life security assurance of critical telecommunications infrastructure and why it is important for the Australia telecommunications sector.

This study explores causal relationships between fixed broadband penetration, gross capital accumulation, the degree of urbanisation, and economic growth, using panel data from 9 ASEAN member countries in 2003-2016.

The evolving M2M/IoT landscape cuts across diverse verticals and embraces a range of networks and devices. This diversity leads to varied and dynamic requirements, which make regulatory policy formulation a daunting challenge, especially the regulation of spectrum. This paper considers how a regulator should look at demand, supply, and utilization of spectrum. The study details available policy levers (e.g. spectrum fees, sharing regulations, License Authorization Model).

Australia’s politics, insular policies and categorisation of fixed telecommunications as a natural monopoly have made Australia a global laggard in the provision of broadband services. The return of government ownership of telecoms infrastructure in the form of the National Broadband Network and the continuing lack of investment in fibre infrastructure highlight the political and policy failures.

Accelerating the signature matching function is essential to perform Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) at line rates. The conversion of the signatures into the Deterministic Finite Automaton (DFA) enables performance of this function at linear time. However, since the DFA is extremely storage inefficient, it is compressed before being stored in the memory. This paper considers decompression approaches to improve signature matching throughput.

A fascinating paper from 1961 contrasting the technical and general differences in providing telecommunications services in Europe, North America and Australia.

Two historic papers from a special issue of the Journal in 1986 featuring the communication requirements for the America’s Cup 1986/87 challenge in Fremantle.

This work examines the implications of autonomous coordination of multiple UAVs on routing techniques and network architecture stability. The paper proposes a solution where routing techniques and UAV autonomy algorithms are integrated for improved global network efficiency for both ad-hoc and infrastructure-based scenarios.

This paper explores flow-based load balancing of network traffic on multi-homed hosts. The approach is a client-side-only solution, and can there­fore easily be deployed. The paper specifically explores flow-based load balanc­ing for web and video traffic use cases.

This article reviews law enforcement/national security access and use of metadata, considering the privacy impact of the revised metadata retention and collection framework introduced in 2015. The review reveals that, after 2015, no comprehensive study was undertaken in the following areas: how location information is generated and exchanged in the IP-mediated LTE network, and how mobile devices are tracked and create more precise location estimates, in the legal and policy context of the exceptions and privacy safeguards introduced after 2015; the discretionary powers of the agencies to use personal and sensitive information to identify inquiries and investigations to pursue and enforce the law.
