Future Tech 2024: An Interview with John Lindsay (Part 2)

In this issue we continue with our inaugural Future Tech 2024 interview — speaking with John Lindsay — one of the Australian telecom industry’s most prominent technologists. In Part 2 of this interview we speak about encryption, the end of privacy, sensors, Australian Internet services in 2024, and the role of dark fibre.

Over the next 10 years, people are going to care about privacy a whole lot more because they will have had an experience, or a close family member or a close friend will have had an experience, where the breach of their privacy has actually impacted their lives.

The Role of Mobile Apps in Measuring Mobile Network Performance

In November 2013, The Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) convened a Mobile Network Performance Forum.

Market Clarity’s CEO, Shara Evans, was invited to present a paper on “Mobile apps as one possible solution” for measuring mobile network performance.

This video was filmed by the ACMA as part of their live webcast of the Forum.

The Rise Of Enterprise BYOD: A Disruptive Trend or The Future Of How We Do Business?

The world is going increasingly mobile. In 2011 smartphones outsold laptops, and in 2013 numerous analyst firms were predicting that tablets would outsell computers (including desktops and laptops) before the end of the year.

So with the obvious rise in popularity of mobile devices and tablets in society as a whole, it was only going to be a matter of time before these devices became increasingly integrated into the business world.

In this article we present: 13 Factors To Consider When Implementing And Managing A Successful BYOD Strategy

Hot Sector in 2014: Mobile Device Management

The mobile device management market is heating up, and is set to be one of the fastest growing market sectors in 2014.

Mobile Device Management (MDM) software provides enterprises with a policy and configuration management tool for a wide range of mobile devices including mobile phones, smartphones, tablets and ruggedized laptops — typically supporting over-the-air distribution of applications, data and configuration settings over multiple mobile operating systems.

Additional features include the ongoing monitoring of mobile devices, and security features such as the ability to remotely wipe data from a device.

Small Business Telecommunications Service Use and Experience

New research by Market Clarity has found nearly 29% of small businesses owners are suffering the same customer service and complaint-handling problems experienced by general consumers, even though the vast majority are paying for business-grade services.

The study also found 32% of small businesses say that even a one-hour fixed broadband outage would have a serious or “catastrophic” impact on their business, a figure that more than doubles in the event of a 24-hour outage.

Surprisingly, more than 50% of small businesses say they have no back-up plan if their fixed broadband went down.
