In order to maintain good transmit signals, a monitoring station was required. CBC set up a monitoring station on the Richardson Sideroad in 1968 to monitor broadcasts from Sackville, NB, expanding to monitor other CBC transmit locations in 2003, when the site became the National Alarm Centre. There are more than 900 transmitters to monitor. The site is also the maintenance centre for the Ottawa area – for transmitters at Barry’s Bay, Chapleau, Kingston and Cornwall. Twenty-three people are employed on site; the site is active 24 hours per day, 7 days a week .

FTTH is the key broadband technology and is replacing ADSL. It provides stable high throughput, realizing
even Gbps class. It also plays a very important role in Next Generation Networks (NGN). The NGN is
Carrier-grade network for the future and a converged solution after the legacy telecom networks by
enabling QoS management and controls in IP network like in legacy telecom networks and by supporting
economical, versatile multi-media applications like those on the Internet with secure manners.
In realizing FTTH, G-PON is widely adopted. International Standards on FTTH, G-PON in particular has
been established and is being further developed.
This lecture consist of the following contents: Introduction to Access Networks, Fundamentals of FTTH,
Requirements to FTTH, Regulatory Aspect of FTTH, Global Standards on FTTH and G-PON, Market Trends
and Further Issues.
Quantum Voltage Standards and Electrical Power Standards at National Measurement Institute Australia
Dr. Dimitrios Georgakopoulos, Research Scientist
National Measurement Institute, Sydney, Australia
DATE: Tuesday, September 2, 2014.
TIME: Refreshments, Registration and Networking: 18:00; Seminar: 18:30 – 20:00
PLACE: Algonquin College, T-Building, Room T129, 1385 Woodroffe Ave., Ottawa.
PARKING: No fee after 5 p.m. at the Parking Lots 8 & 9. Please respect restricted areas.
Advances in quantum electrical metrology and access to low uncertainty electrical standards
by instrument manufacturers and calibration laboratories are making low uncertainty measurements
feasible at decreasing costs. In the area of electrical power, a number of applications, driven either by
regulation or innovation, create new opportunities for National Metrology Institutes. E.g., wide area power
quality monitoring systems using synchronisation based on global positioning systems require
challenging measurements (such as measurements of phasor quantities and frequency rate of change).
Other applications, such as the efficiency measurements of solid-state lighting and the electrical power of
appliances in standby mode require measurements under distorted voltage and current conditions and at
low power factors. This talk will give an overview of the activities in these areas at the National
Measurement Institute, Australia, with emphasis on the technical challenges involved.
Speaker’s Bio – Dimitrios Georgakopoulos received his B.Eng. Degree in Electrical Engineering from the
Technological Educational Institution of Piraeus, Greece in 1996; M.Sc. Degree in Electronic
Instrumentation Systems and Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering and Electronics from the University of
Manchester, UK, in 1999 and 2002, respectively. From 2002 to 2007, he worked as a research scientist at
the National Physical Laboratory (NPL), UK. In 2007, he joined the National Measurement Institute,
Australia, as a research scientist, where he has been working on the development of quantum voltage
standards and low-frequency electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) measurement standards.
Admission: Free. Registration required.
