The Biarri Applied Mathematics Conference is on again and registrations are open for 2016. This year FTTx planning and design optimisation is a core component of the free 2-day conference so don’t miss out!
What are Fibre Optic Networks, how do we predict how expensive they will be and why do we do it?
Patrick Edwards will take BAM attendees through the complexities of a fibre network rollout and how it’s not always as straight forward as meets the eye. With billions of dollars being spent around the world on the deployment of these networks Patrick will explore the importance of optimisation and mathematics when predicting costs and different architectures.
Patrick Edwards has a background in mathematics, physics, programming and biochemistry. Patrick enjoys finding new ways to apply the skills from those areas to problems in the FTTx space. By conducting experiments for clients, Patrick helps companies across the telco industry make informed architectural and strategic decisions across their FTTx rollouts.
Why don’t Engineers and Mathematicians get along?
Alex Grime will be looking into the differences in how engineers and mathematicians think and speak across FTTx deployments and how that often gets in the way of successfully leveraging each other’s strengths:
- Engineers want accurate, mathematicians want precise,
- Engineers are interested in the destination, mathematicians are interested in the journey,
- Engineers think 3 dimensionally, mathematicians think n dimensionally.
Alex Grime has over 20 years of experience in the telco industry across Network Strategy, Technology, Planning, Design, Cost Optimisation, and Operations. With a strong history in various roles across Optus, and NBN Alex is now one of the leading Telecommunications consultants for Biarri Networks.
How freedom to innovate is optimising global fibre rollouts.
Laura Smith will be discussing how FTTx networks are now being planned, designed and deployed with greater certainty, speed and at a lower cost by empowering smart mathematical minds. Through the use of optimisation, machine learning and other mathematical techniques, the entire industry is being re-imagined around us– and for the better.
Laura joined Biarri Networks after graduating with a Science degree in 2014. Starting as a member of the design team, she began taking on leadership roles and her focus changed to team development. Laura is passionate about process improvement and thrives on the challenges of working with a wide variety of people and clients.
The BAM Conference 2016
Registrations are now open and this year the conference will be held in Brisbane, Australia, on June 28 and 29 at QUT Gardens Point with support from The Queensland University of Technology, The Australian Mathematical Sciences Institute and Biarri.
