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.

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.

Papers in the June 2018 issue of the Journal cover what to do with the National Broadband Network when the rollout is completed, Unmanned Aerial Vehicle communications, energy efficient mobile ad-hoc network communications and a historical look at the Black Mountain Tower in Canberra. With the completion of the National Broadband Network rollout in coming years, there will be an opportunity for substantive wholesale telecommunications reforms. 

This paper considers what the government of the day should do with the NBN after the NBN is built and fully operational in 2022. It discusses four options for the ownership of NBN Co beyond 2022 and describes arguments for and against each option.

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 UAV swarm evolution process of this study creates different data transfer methods depending on the separation of non-swarm devices and the communication range of the swarm members. This paper also explores the resilience of the swarm to agent loss, and the scalability of the swarm in a range of environment sizes.

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).

Two historic papers from a special issue of the Journal in 1981 featuring the new Black Mountain telecommunications tower in Canberra.

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.

Flooding is an indispensable operation in wireless ad hoc networks. The traditional flooding scheme generates excessive redundant packet retransmissions. In this paper, we propose an efficient flooding protocol that consumes less energy, reduces the number of forwarding nodes almost to that of the benchmark, but maintains a high delivery ratio.

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.
