Papers in the March 2018 issue of the Journal cover advances in telecommunications technologies and regulation, historical events, and book reviews. Looking more widely, telecommunications consumer protections are vital and there needs to be a timely response to the rapid rise in complaints recently reported by the TIO. The Journal would welcome contributions on this and other topics.
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.
The NBN can make a difference both in terms of the geographical availability of broadband access and in the maximum access speeds provided. We find that the NBN will extend fixed-line broadband availability only marginally. In terms of access speed, we find that a further 17% of the population will have access to 10 Mb/s downstream and a further 65% of the population will have access to 25 Mb/s.
Centralized mobility management (CMM) is widely used in current mobile network technologies. One problem related to CMM is a single point of failure. In this paper, we propose a distributed mobility management (DMM) solution with handover operations for SDN-enabled mobile networks.
Two historic papers from a special issue of the Journal in 1981 featuring the new Black Mountain telecommunications tower in Canberra.
This study addresses Blackhole and Selective Forwarding attacks in the RPL routing protocol. Test experiments are used to provide a proof-of-concept of the validity that the developed Trust-based RPL protocol provides a comprehensive defence (simulation and testbed) against Blackhole and Selective Forwarding attacks.
Roger Banks passed away in January 2018. He retired as Telecom Australia?s Director of Business Development in 1988. This obituary outlines his life from the early days in Victoria, through his career with the PMG and Telecom, to his post-retirement contributions as a board member and supporter of engineering education.
A historic paper from the Journal in 1961 summarising the investigation and selection of Crossbar Switching Equipment for the Australian Telephone Network.
?Telegraph? Todd was celebrated for his achievement in planning and organising the construction of the Overland Telegraph Line from Adelaide to Darwin, linking Australia to the outside world. Yet Todd himself has remained a shadowy figure, eluding a series of biographers for more than a century after his death. This article identifies the increasing availability of biographical resources over time and reviews the challenges which biographers faced in bringing to life the career of a great pioneering Australian.
In 2017 a new biography, Behind the Legend - The Many Worlds of Charles Todd, by Denis Cryle, was published. Cryle has written an engaging book that is thoroughly researched and referenced. It will appeal both to historians and to the general reader without expertise in any of the scientific or technical fields inhabited by Todd.
A new book, The Weatherman from Greenwich: Charles Todd ? 1826 to 1910, promises to be a biography of Charles Todd, telecommunications pioneer in Australia. The title is, however, misleading. Most of the book is devoted to social influences in England and South Australia that may have shaped Todd?s early life. Todd?s early technical experience in England and his first activities in Australia are briefly sketched. Readers seeking a fuller account of Todd?s life and achievements should look elsewhere.
On 29 November 1967 at 2:19 pm (local time), a small scientific satellite named the Weapons Research Establishment SATellite (WRESAT) was launched from Woomera, South Australia. Australia was the third country in the world to launch a satellite into space from its own territory. This paper is the author's personal account of his part in the project.
This article establishes the relationship between the condition of Australian broadband services and Australia?s history of broadband regulation. It reviews research on the effects of regulation and industry concentration internationally, which indicates that the effects of widely deployed policies are often small or undetectable. Penetration and quality are strongly affected by technology factors.
