8:40 Rod Drury
Talking about Google, Microsoft and Apple mostly. A bit of Xero advertising and demoing. Showcasing how AJAX and other web technologies bridged the user and browser to fully-featured online apps. Thin-client model. Lobbying for government to help providing high capacity backbone network capabilities in the country. Short discussion.
9:25 Dr. Michael Peeters “Copper futures:
Next Generation Broadband from Alcatel Lucent perspective. About crosstalk cancellation, and copper length estimation. Lots of talking about how to use copper networks, especially for DSL.
Really fast paced technical presentation.
10:25 Paul Teal, Canterbury, broadband Research in UC
The team: prof. Peter Smith, Dr. Mansoor Shafi
Physical deployment of DLS cables, 40km underground cabling, FPGA-based algorithms deployments for crosstalk cancellation.
10:30 Question and Answers for the morning session.
10:35 coffee break
11:00 Christopher A White “Idea propagation in organisation”
Quantitative model for goals and idea propagation. Hierarchical Simulation tools and examples,
– wrong team
– inadequate resources
– ip issues
– late to market
– and only really few lead to dsruptive innovation
Standard modelling technique:
active blocks with input and outputs
composition of active blocks (agents)
behaviour of agents coded as state-machine
combining knowledge model, topology, and simple agent behaviour (as
Grand Challange Challange select a challange that can be worked on
within 5 yeor timespan, that would be a sound business proposition and
that would be inspiring for the neighbours and benefit society.
idea -> resources -> market -> feedback to idea again -> -> innovation
11:45 Peter Komusarczuk, Victoria University
NGNs, Graduate and undergraduate -> industry
summer of code, summer projects for students in industry
GrowWellington, TechNZ, Computer Society Inc.
Community: Silicon Welly, Unlimited Potential, CreativeHQ,
13:30 Workshop – Applications
Comments about the slides: Take it beyond the middleware and switching technology, and more into application enabler space,where academia, telcos and application developers are working in a unified ecosystem.
– messaging (MMS, SMS, e-mail)
– call control, conferencing,
– subscriber profiles
– ease of access
– ease of use
– per lookup/message
– per event (notification)
Discussion about standards, and standarizing APIs
outsourcing the ecosystem building and community building to outside
– e-home, and home automation
– health apps
– energy research
Aggregation and randomisation as a possible revenue generator.
15:00 Coffee break
– signal grooming, noise cancellation, local loop unboundling
– cable plans, trial sites,
– should look to progress Chris’s work across NZ Unis to establish any common grounds in Research
– Potential to take Telecom’s existing work in qualifying ideas and feeding into Chris’s work to extending capability looking to develop predictability
– forming a community of interest, building a Wiki/DB with ideas and who is doing what
– stimulating the process of establishing and grooming ecosystem. Focus on developers.
– develop demos and apps that are key to NZ (health, food, land use, tourism)
– application challange – run a nation-wide challange for everyone
– with the help of Bell Labs, industry and academia try to look into the future and come up with potential future apps/technologies/enablers
– Trial Wireless Network Guardian
– managing E2E service quality
– guarding against DoS attacks
– efficient resource utilisation
– Application Testbed
– future customer demands
– in home services, apps
– Physical layer
– Cognitive networks/Radio
– Dynamic pricing mechanisms, spot market pricing
– mechanisms to aid resource allocation, self-organisation, capacity,
– Remote/Rural coverage
– Network Coding (Bell Labs/Massey)
– Network optimisation
15:50 Closing speech by Frank Mount
What matters for me (in NZ). Symposium in NZ for NZ.
