 Abstract:     It's BeerSIG time!
               'What's BeerSIG?' I hear you ask! BeerSIG is a social
               gathering, and an opportunity to get together with
               like minded people and share a social pint.

               This month we're back at The Duxton at O'Connor shops.

 Location:     The Duxton
               8 Macpherson St, O'Connor ACT 2602


 Time:         19:00 - 21:00 (or when it finishes)

 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

 Food/drink:   Pizza and soft drink/juice. Come hungry, and bring
               about $6-$7 to cover the cost of your share if you
               want some.
