Defence communications simply can’t fail. They need to run over a secure fibre network with an exceptional record of providing the capacity, performance and resilience to meet the most stringent mission requirements.
With Vocus’ high-capacity fibre network, you’ll have peace of mind that your critical communications systems are working at all times. You can carry out operations and tasks as planned and make sure information reaches the right people at the right time. And since Vocus’ fibre networks are built to provide greater security for government users, you can be rest assured that threats to your communications will be mitigated.
We speak with Dr. Matthew Ilic, our very own satcomms specialist, an Australian army veteran with 32 years of service. We chat to Matt about the significant benefits LEO satellite connectivity offers the defence industry, and the huge impact it can have on humanitarian relief efforts throughout the world.
Vocus provides industry-leading network solutions with the highest levels of security and reliability for defence communications. We are a wholly Australian-owned and operated company and a long-term trusted partner to both government and defence industry, through our acquisition of Nextgen Networks in 2016.
Vocus recently celebrated 20 years of providing sovereign, secure and mission-critical network services to the Australian Government and its agencies. We were very lucky to speak with General the Hon. Sir Peter Cosgrove, to discuss his experiences leading the Australian Defence Force, international peacekeeping missions, and recovery and relief efforts in the aftermath of natural disasters.
Today's topic is a hot one – the future of security – and we cover a lot of ground with our guests including: the growing risks, particularly now with more hybrid working; the core issue of trust or rather zero trust; the role of boards; and the need for greater collaboration between business and government. Guests: Bob Mansfield, Bruce McCabe and Pip Marlow.
With the global economy facing some significant challenges, we talk to Daniel McCormack, Head of Thought Leadership from Macquarie Asset Management, about the forces at play, the likely impacts, and how businesses can work through them. We cover supply issues, labour markets, geopolitical risks, the transition to renewable energy, and lots more.
