NBN

The NBN (National Broadband Network) is a Federal government initiative aimed at improving national internet speeds in an increasingly digital age. The NBN commenced its 3 year Australia-wide rollout plan in June 2013. NBN Co (a wholly-owned Commonwealth company that has been prescribed as a Government Business Enterprise) was formed in 2009 and contracted to implement the NBN.

What does this mean?
According to the Department of Broadband Communications and the Digital Economy: “the NBN will provide high-speed broadband access to all Australian homes and businesses through a mix of three technologies: optic fibre, fixed wireless and next-generation satellite.93 per cent of Australian homes, schools and businesses will have access to the NBN through optic fibre to premises, capable of providing broadband speeds of up to one gigabyte per second.”

This large-scale, Australia wide endeavor will connect 93% of homes, schools and workplaces with optical fibre (fibre to the premises or “FTTP”), providing superfast broadband services to Australians in urban and regional towns. The remaining hard-to-reach 7% will be connected to the NBN by fixed wireless and satellite technology.

The Federal government estimates that “more than six million homes and businesses will be able to access or be in progress to receive NBN services by mid-2016.”

Cloud Computing

The “cloud” has become a household name in the past couple of years, but what does it actually mean and what can it do for your business and home? According to info-world.com: “Cloud computing encompasses any subscription-based or pay-per-use service that, in real time over the Internet, extends IT’s existing capabilities… Cloud computing is at an early stage, with a motley crew of providers large and small delivering a slew of cloud-based services, from full-blown applications to storage services to spam filtering.” Howstuffworks.com describes what cloud computing does: “In a cloud computing system, there’s a significant workload shift. Local computers no longer have to do all the heavy lifting when it comes to running applications. The network of computers that make up the cloud handles them instead. Hardware and software demands on the user’s side decrease. The only thing the user’s computer needs to be able to run is the cloud computing system’s interface software, which can be as simple as a Web browser, and the cloud’s network takes care of the rest.” An everyday example of cloud computing, that most people have encountered, can be found within web-based email accounts like, gmail, hotmail and yahoo.
