This presentation will be given by Rob Struzyna (formerly BTRL).
The internet works by connecting computers in different countries on separate continents, mostly using fibre optics. In order to do this, and to enable these delicate fibres to survive in a hostile marine environment, many problems had to be overcome.
This talk tells the story of how these challenges were met with a little help from a bush fire in Papua New Guinea.
Start time: 7pm.
Refreshments will be available before the start of the lecture from 6.30pm in Room 002, Babbage Building.
