Abstract: It's BeerSIG time!

like minded people and share a social pint.

Title: Commissioning an undersea cable.
Tim Rayner, AARNet
Abstract: Ever wondered what it takes to 'turn up' a new undersea
cable? do you wonder how they power all those repeaters?
Is it just a bunch of 9V batteries joined together?
Come along to this month's talk and hear Tim talk about
why there is good noise and bad noise on an undersea cable,
how do you maintain diversity when there's only one ocean,
and find exactly how far away a 600Gbps test continues to
really be 600Gbps (or 400, 300 or even 200Gbps).
Venue: Room N101
Computer Science and Information Technology Building
The Australian National University
